Six Nations all-stars return to Brock in lacrosse friendlies

As Brock University continues to grow its partnership with the indigenous community, the Brock Badgers lacrosse teams are set to host the Six Nations All-Stars in a pair of exhibition games for the second straight year.

The pair of friendly matchups against the Six Nations teams will take place this Saturday, Sept. 9 with the women playing at 10 a.m. and the men playing at noon.

The exhibition games are the result of a collaboration between Brock’s Aboriginal Student Services and Brock Sports.

“It is very important to host the Six Nations men’s and women’s lacrosse teams at Brock University,” said Brock Sports Assistant Athletic Director Chris Critelli. “Not only is it great competition for our teams, but also a fabulous partnership that we have built with the indigenous community. It also provides a great opportunity to showcase our campus.”

“It’s important that we involve the aboriginal community in events to promote university education to our aboriginal youth,” said Sandra Wong, the University’s Aboriginal Academic Support Program Coordinator. “This event is a great opportunity to showcase the talent of the participants and promote Brock Sports to prospective students bridging sports and academics.”

Both games will take place on Brock’s Alumni Field. Admission is free.
