Special Thanks to the Sign Cellar!

The Sign Cellar helped Kamloops Minor Lacrosse in 2019 with printing, installing and sponsoring two large board sponsor logos.

In 2020, The Sign Cellar surprised Kamloops Minor Lacrosse once again. Cameron Hackl confirmed with Kamloops Minor Lacrosse that the logo order and installation had been completed for our new rink divider board system, but he had a little surprise for the association. Two extra Kamloops Rattlers logos had been installed at no charge! As 2020 had been a hard year on minor sports, this amazing gesture was unexpected and such a wonderful surprise for the association.

Thank you Cameron and The Sign Cellar.


When C.W. Charles started hauling goods in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1919 the sound of truck engines symbolized the beginning of a new era in transportation.

Hauling whales to wood chips, Arrow trucks have crisscrossed the North American landscape for over 100 years. We have been integral in supporting the industrial engine of our economy. Building dams, supplying mines, mills, smelters and factories, Arrow people and equipment have had an impact.

Today Arrow is leading the way in developing service focused transportation solutions by working with a broad range of customers, hauling a wider variety of products, and expanding our presence throughout Canada and the United States.

We are developing productive relationships with First Nations communities, government agencies and educational institutions. We continue to build long-term contracts with customers who value service, environmental responsibility and employee systems as well as competitive pricing. With hundreds of people working in transportation and distribution, reloads and materials handling, manufacturing and support services, we are known as a company that focuses on high quality transportation solutions at very competitive rates.


Four Kamloops athletes have earned NCAA athletic scholarships to play field lacrosse in the U.S. university and collegiate system.

Connor Barrett, Ethan Kaban, Millan Webster and Austin Krug, each of whom will graduate this spring from Royal Bay secondary in Victoria, will head down south in the fall to begin their post-secondary careers.

Thank you to the United Steel Workers Local 7619 for your continued support of Kamloops Minor Lacrosse.

This union has been a strong part of our community for over 50 years by literally donating millions of dollars by their members to all sorts of organizations such as United Way and sports bursaries every year. 2020 the USW Local 7619 awarded our league one of those bursaries plus an additional separate amount allowing us to replace a set of jerseys thus becoming an official sponsor for the Rattlers!
