2023 PNWJLL ALL-STAR GAME
The Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse League is proud to announce the 2023 All-Star game will be held Saturday June 10th, 2023 @ 6:30pm at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, hosted by the PNWJLL.
The PNWJLL Executive and Board of Governors are happy to bring back this exhibition game for year number two, celebrating this annual achievement.
Talent on Vancouver Island has increased dramatically over recent years which has improved play in the PNWJLL. With an increase of talent but no additional Junior A or B1 programs; the skill and athleticism in the PNWJLL has improved creating some great lacrosse this season and an increase in attendance at many games, but none more noticeably than in Nanaimo. What better venue and city to host such an event!
The All-Star rosters will consist of players from all 6 PNWJLL teams with the Cowichan Thunder returning to PNWJLL league play after a four year absence. Players will be selected based on their position (offence, defence, transition, face-off and goaltending), skill-set, game play as well as statistics based on the positions they play within their teams. Players selected to play in the All-Star game will be divided so that players from each team will play against players from their own regular PNWJLL team, balancing each team.
Rosters will consist of six players (runners) from each team to make (36 players); these players will form two (18) man rosters. Goaltenders will be selected the same way, with one goalie from each team being selected (6) to make six goalies selected for the ASG (All-Star Game). Each goaltender will play one period for their selected squad (All-Star Black - Home & All-Star White - Away).
