What we are

     The Jaguar Lacrosse Club (JLC) is a post-season/off-season team that participates       in the Shooters lacrosse league during the summer and fall seasons.  The summer season is during the months of May and June.  The fall season is during the months of August, September, and October. 

Registration is dealt with on a seasonal basis.  We are currently registering for the summer season (Registration form is on the next page).

     The JLC will field three teams at Shooters, based on age: Under 9 (U-9),  Under 11 (U-11), and Under 13 (U-13).  Age is determined by the players’ age  previous to August 31, 2013. 

     Players need equipment, specifically:  Helmet, shoulder pads, armguards, gloves, mouthpiece, cup, cleats, and of course, a stick.  I recommend shopping for equipment at the Play It Again Sports at Britton Plaza in South Tampa off of Dale Mabry.  They have a wide selection of new and used equipment to choose from.

Respect the Game

THE CREATOR'S GAME
The Game of lacrosse was given to our people by the Creator to play for his amusement. Just as a parent will gain much amusement at the sight of watching his child playing joyfully with a new gift, so it was intended that the Creator be similarly amused by viewing his "children" playing lacrosse in a manner which was so defiant of fatigue. This is our belief, and when the four Great Messengers cam, the Creator reiterated to us that his game should be played.

There is a long history of speculation about where the game of lacrosse originated, but as Natives of North America, this question has little significance. We do not wonder who invented lacrosse, or when and where; our ancestors have been playing the game for centuries - for the Creator.

Tewaarathon was not just played to call the Creator's attention to the efforst of the medicine people or simply for one's personal enjoyment and physical fitness. Tewaareathon, because it came from the Creator himself, was also played to bestow honor and respect ot these members living on Mother Earth who had done great things for the Nation. Related to this, Tewaarathon also constituted a means of offering thanksgiving to tyhe Creator for having allowed an elder or medicine person to remain with the Nation so that person could continue to share the richness of his full life with the younger members.

It is true that Tewaarathon (or lacrosse) does demand physical fitness, and participants would train for many months to prepare themselves for these important games, but what is more significant is that our people believed that all things on Mother Earth were a gift of the Creator and following the Creator's instructions. Because lacrosse was such a gift, the difficult training for Tewaarathon was not seen as a burden of work, but rather this training was enjoyed as a preparation to partaking in a precious gift. A participant in Tewaarathon believed that his ability to play was a gift itself and that the enjoyment of playing rested in freely giving his best effort. Because only the participant really knew when his effort had been well prepared and complete, the training for Tewaarathon was related to enjoying one's gift in the view of the very one who had been so generous. It is unfortunate that the fervour which our people took to the field of play was often misinterpreted by the European eye which was untrained to the relationship between the Indian, Tewaarathon, and the Creator. As for the players, in a game of such great importance, there were no bad feelings for any accidental gestures because both teams realized the sincerity of the effort.
