The Vermont Voyageurs play box lacrosse in Canada all Summer long, and they are the only franchise of their kind currently in existence in the United States.
Founded in 2009 by Jeff Culkin, the Voyageurs have played Canadian-style Summer box lacrosse ever since, as well as competing in tournaments, exhibitions, and even scrimmages with Team USA. If you want to get into box lacrosse in a serious way, the Vermont Voyageurs are your best shot, short of moving to Canada.
For the past year, I’ve worked with Jeff Culkin to tell the Voyageurs’ story, which is funny, because he actually sold the team to a group of players in 2013. He started the team out of passion, and he’s still supporting them however he can. I don’t tell this tale to pump Jeff’s tires either. I tell it because it shows what kind of franchise Vermont truly is… a good one. It was started by good people, and it’s run by good people now.
Ethan Farrell, Joe Evans, Brandon Dube, and Trevor Wagar now own the team, and all four are also players. They run the show, they run the emerging Juniors program, and they all LOVE box lacrosse. Given what they’ve done, and who they are, it was a no-brainer to support them. I entered this hopeful, and I leave a believer.
