The Brampton Excelsior Lacrosse Club has almost 150 years of history in the Brampton community.  We partner with the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association to provide the opportunity to play from 3 years old to Masters.  We strive to reach for excellence on the floor and our fiscal goal is to ensure that all teams are self-sustaining.  It is for this reason, we are pleased to announce that the Brampton Excelsior Lacrosse Club has transferred ownership of the Major Excelsior Team to Joe Norton, owner of Bug Juice Company.

Bug Juice has grown into the largest children’s drink company in the United States and are now selling in Canada.  Joe is a graduate from the University of Michigan with a master’s degree in business administration. He is married with two children and lives and operates his business in the Detroit area.  Joe fell in love with the game watching his kids play, learn basic skills, team work and how to be competitive.

With his experience in marketing, his vision is to build on the success of our history and to rebuild the Major Excelsiors into a competitive, championship team again, both on and off the floor.

The Brampton Excelsiors Lacrosse Club will continue to maintain control and operations of the Junior A & B teams, along with Women & Men’s Field, and Masters.

We welcome Joe to the Excelsior family!!! Together we will promote and grow the game of lacrosse within the Brampton community.

Ziggy Musial, President
Brampton Excelsior Lacrosse Club

Excelsiors Looking For Sponsorship

The Excelsiors are looking for businesses to sponsor our team for the 2017 season.  As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday lacrosse has grown right along with the country.

Lacrosse was first played by indigenous people of the Six Nations, the Great Lakes region and the south-eastern United States. The game has great spiritual significance. In earlier times, it was also used as preparation, or as replacement for open warfare. It could be used for healing purposes or to influence the weather. An indoor version of the sport called box lacrosse, which combined ice hockey and field lacrosse, was created in the 1930’s. Lacrosse was confirmed by Parliament as the National Summer Sport of Canada in 1994. In the summer of 2017, it will celebrate its 150th anniversary as the sport originally defined by William George Beers, making it one of the oldest organized sports in the country. (See https://www.participaction.com/en-ca/programs/participaction-150-play-list/activities/lacrosse for further details).

If you or if you know someone who is able to help us out with sponsorship this season please see the attached document for all the details.  2017-major-sponsorship
