Our Meaning

Lacrosse, our nation’s first and oldest sport, is that of legend.

The First Nations people have played the game for centuries, and as the sport evolved, so did its purpose. It became a stage of strength and glory, where the noble would showcase their unprecedented athletic prowess. The bravest would be deemed protectors of their people, their communities—and remembered in Indigenous tales, respectfully, as Warriors.

The game now breathes new life, yet the spirit the traditional Warrior embodied—Athleticism, Protection and Strength—lives on in the Vancouver Warriors. New history awaits as the Vancouver Warriors stand their ground in the heart of Vancouver, Rogers Arena, with the strength of the province behind them.

A new sporting atmosphere is coming to Vancouver. It will be loud. It will be spirited. And it is just the beginning.
