Hundreds of female lacrosse players will be descending upon Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows this week to compete in the Reign Storm tournament.

This annual competition is hosted by the Ridge Meadows Burrards and involves girls from a wide variety of age groups, explained tournament chair Katie Cowieson.

There will be teams competing in U11, U13, U15, U17, and junior divisions.

“We are expecting over 700 girls all across the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, and Calgary,” said Cowieson.

“We love to see the girls have a space to showcase their skills. Seeing the girls get excited about this tournament makes all the time and effort worth it. My daughter plays in the tournament so it will be extra special for me.”
