The Victoria Shamrocks are our hometown Senior A box lacrosse team. Established in 1950 the team has seen tremendous success, winning 20 Provincial Championships and the Mann Cup, which is the Canadian National Championship 9 times. In the past decade or so, they have been fielding strong teams every year and seem to be perennial favourites to win – or at least compete for – the Mann Cup.
The Victoria Shamrocks play home games at the Q Centre located at the Westshore Parks and Recreation complex.
The 25-player roster consists of 2 goalies and 23 runners and with a name like Shamrocks, they predictably wear a green and white uniform.
When the team was formed in 1950, they were known as the Shamrocks but with a Pay Less Gas sponsorship between 1982 and 1994, they changed their name and went by the Victoria Pay Less.
Thank goodness that ended, because they went back to their original name in 1995 and hopefully won’t get any ideas of changing names again!
Most people recognize that ice hockey is Canada’s national winter sport but did you know what our national summer sport is? It’s lacrosse! If you are visiting Victoria between May and July and enjoy thrilling, live action sports entertainment, then check out the Victoria Shamrocks schedule and head down to the Q Centre.
