Our History


In 1966, original founder John "Jet" Tayler introduced the game of box lacrosse to the West End of Edmonton forming the community based "North Glenora Blues". In the early 80's, the North Glenora Blues and the West Edmonton Gophers merged to form the West Edmonton Blues.

Since it's 1966 inception, Blues Teams have challenged for City (GELC), Provincial (ALA) and National (CLA) Championships at all divisions of play. 

In the 1970's the Blues were a provincial power, representing Alberta at the:

  • 1969 Canada Summer Games in Halifax/Dartmouth

  • 1973 Canada Summer Games in New Westminster/Burnaby

  • 1977 Canada Summer Games in St. John's 

  • 1978 Commonwealth Games in Edmonton 

The 1980's and 1990's were decades of declining membership, however, this new millennium is marked by a huge increase in player registration.  With the advent of the NLL Edmonton Rush, the Blues are preparing for the next wave of Lacrosse growth.

In 2016, we celebrated 50 years of lacrosse.
