In light of the findings at the Kamloops Residential School, Kamloops Minor Lacrosse would like to show our support and stands with Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc, the nation and the rest of Canada’s Indigenous players who play The Creator’s Game.

All proceeds from merchandise sold will go to the Fusion Spirit Foundation. The Fusion Spirit Foundation was created to help Indigenous youth gain opportunities to learn and play the medicine game here in British Columbia. The foundation aims to create sustainable programs with Indigenous communities to develop a cycle of learning, skill development, mentorship and growth.
