Timbermen reach out to kids

Children 12 and under who are accompanied by a paying adult will be admitted free to all senior A and junior A lacrosse games this season.

The Nanaimo Timbermen know that their youngest fans can be some of their most passionate supporters.

Children 12 and under will be admitted free to all senior A and junior A lacrosse games this season, provided they are accompanied by an adult.

The senior A and junior A lacrosse teams are now selling season tickets, and have decided to sell flex packages of 20 tickets, good for any game, at a cost of $135.

Also, the senior A and junior A lacrosse teams are starting a Timbermen Fan Club for the 2016 season. For a $20 fee, kids get a fan club T-shirt and will be eligible to win prizes at every home game. Members of the fan club will have the chance to be introduced with the team as an honorary ball boy or ball girl, and could be chosen Fan of the Week and be photographed with their favourite player.
