New Westminster Salmonbellies celebrate 135th anniversary

The community of New Westminster embraces all the levels of Salmonbellies—from the young kids all the way to the senior game.

“It’s not uncommon you walk around New Westminster seeing kids walking around with belly shorts, lacrosse sticks in hand,” said Junior A Salmonbellies General Manager Warren Goss.

The sport of lacrosse has been played for 135 years in the Royal City. The glory years of box lacrosse hit its height in the 70s and early 80s, when the senior Salmonbellies were crowned the best in Canada five times.
