Playing it close

The Penticton Heat 1 lacrosse team doesn’t play until May 26, but that won’t stop coach Dan Chetner from giving practices a different feel.

With two scheduled before their battle with Kelowna, repetition is key as Chetner aims to recreate game situations.

“We improved a lot in our effort and team play,” said Chetner, whose team recently split two games with Kamloops opening with a loss then rebounding with a 10-5 win.

Chetner wants to see his team perform to its best all the time. He said the coaches must teach the players how to be consistent with giving their best effort.

“The coaches also need to be able to give the kids the opportunity to practice what is expected in the game and what is effective so the kids are confident when it comes to game time,” he said.

The Heat’s game against Kelowna will be in the Summerland Arena at 6:30 p.m.
