ABOUT Sentinels Lacrosse
Founded in 2018 by Arden Wipf and Luke Acton, Sentinels Lacrosse is a developmental lacrosse program based in Saskatoon. The goal of Sentinels Lacrosse is to provide an uncontested premier training opportunity for elite-level lacrosse players from across the province of Saskatchewan. The instructors of the program are well-versed in both box and field lacrosse and have competed professionally and in the NCAA.
Sentinels Lacrosse focuses on developing both the individual player, as well as a strong team concept. The program is made up of a junior varsity team (grade 10 and below) and varsity team (grade 11 and 12). Identified players will train in a fun, but competitive atmosphere. Sentinels players will receive in-depth instruction on how they can take their game to the next level. Along the way, players will be given opportunities to compete against elite programs in both Canada and the United States.
Players that are invited to be a part of the program will be held to high expectations both on and off the field. Pursuing academic success and persevering through challenges are fundamental components to being a Sentinel. The goal of the program is to not only help players work towards being elite lacrosse players, but to help instil the work ethic, accountability, and integrity that will help carry them forward in life.
