The Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse League was established on Vancouver Island in the summer of 2001. The PNWJLL consisted of five (5) teams; the Campbell River Ravens, Juan de Fuca Whalers, Nanaimo Timbermen, Peninsula Falcons and the Victoria/Esquimalt Eagles.
During the league's tenure; some teams have come and gone, some have changed cities/municipalities, nicknames, logos, and colours but the PNWJLL has continued with the hard work and determination of many people.
The growth of lacrosse on Vancouver Island is a direct result of all minor lacrosse associations (Campbell River Ravens, Comox Valley Wild, Cowichan Valley Thunder, Juan de Fuca Whalers, Nanaimo Timbermen, Oceanside Sharks, Peninsula Warriors, Port Alberni Tyees, Saanich Tigers, and the Victoria/Esquimalt Eagles) working together to promote and foster Canada's National summer sport.
The upcoming year will mark the Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse League's 21st season and return to play after the Global Pandemic. We look forward to celebrating this achievement with all lacrosse fans!
