The Sentinels Lacrosse Club is doing great work introducing players to a bigger understanding of the sport.

The Sentinels were started in 2018 by veteran lacrosse coaches Arden Wipf and Luke Acton, and the program came to the Gordie Howe Sports Complex grounds shortly after the Indoor Training Centre opened on March 1, 2019.

Wipf and Acton grew up playing lacrosse in Saskatoon and played NCAA field lacrosse with the Bellarmine University Knights in Louisville, Kentucky from the late 2000s to the early 2010s.

The Sentinels aim to give players a better understanding of team concepts used in field lacrosse and improve their skill in the game. The program, which is run in the fall, works to provide opportunities to play other elite level travel programs.

On top of those aspects, the Sentinels help introduce players to the opportunities that exist to play lacrosse at the post-secondary and professional levels.

They are the feature piece for the February content upload of the “Howe Happenings” blog.

The second post is a round up of photos of the happenings and fun that have occurred at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex over about the last three months. A number of these photos have appeared on the Gordie Howe Sports Complex’s social media lines.

You can find these stories on the “Howe Happenings” blog at howehappenings306.blogspot.com.

New content will be released on the ninth day of each month. We hope you will enjoy the stories that make up the posts on the “Howe Happenings” blog.
