Lacrosse Legend Monty Slingerland
Monty Slingerland learned his lacrosse on the dirt floor of an outdoor rink within view of the Niagara Escarpment and Wine Country.
He loved being involved in all facets of the game, adding coaching to his resume almost as soon as he began playing.
He embraced Management as well with the Niagara Warriors Junior B Team and becoming a co-owner at a fairly young age. 1993 was a dream year for Monty and his Warriors.
The team won the Ontario Summer Games, the Canadian Summer Games, the Founders Cup, and ended the summer beating an excellent Whitby squad for the Ontario Championship.
He kept playing up to 1980 through participation in the Port Dalhousie Men’s League. Slingerman’s final coaching stint was in 1988-1989 in the Niagara-On The-Lake Minor Lacrosse Association.
