Jr B Tier 1
Junior is the age group for players that are 17 to 21 years old. When players reach Junior, they move from ‘minor’ lacrosse to ‘major’ lacrosse.
After completion of the Midget level of minor lacrosse, players move on to the “Junior Program” for young men and women wanting to continue with the game of lacrosse (players aged 17 to 21). The Junior Division in the Province of Alberta is governed by the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Association (“RMLL”), the lacrosse organization in Alberta that oversees Major lacrosse.
Our Silvertips are a Junior B Tier 1 league.
Jr “B” Tier I is a very competitive level of Junior box lacrosse in Alberta. There are 14 Jr “B” Tier I teams; throughout Alberta, two from Saskatchewan and one from Manitoba.. The Junior “B” Tier I league is a stepping stone for players pursuing a position on the Junior “A” teams. For the most part, players are between the ages of 17 and 19 and develop their skills at the Junior “B” Tier I level before potentially earning a position on a Junior “A” team.
