Early History of Lacrosse in Victoria BC

Someone brought some lacrosse sticks here to Victoria and by 1883 there were newspaper reports of young men learning the game . Within a year they had enough
sticks and players to have a match at the Beacon Hill Field. In June 1886 a Victoria Lacrosse Club was founded. 
 
The first officially recorded match played here in BC took place that August  between teams from Victoria and Vancouver.
