At the age of 18 years Danny Dahms has quickly become an accomplished lacrosse player, and has just returned with his Junior B Tier 1 Calgary Shamrock teammates from an extreme effort at the National Championship event known as the Founders’ Cup.

Danny, who is the grandson of Gerald and Margaret Dahms of Ponoka, was participating in his 3rd Founders’ Cup Competition, which was held this year in Guelph, Ontario and features the top teams in the nation.

As a carded Junior “B’ tier 1 team member of the Calgary Shamrocks, he had the honour of competing in the same event in Windsor, Ontario in 2006, and then in Kamloops, B.C. in 2007, where they won the bronze medals. At this year’s Founders’ Danny was in the top three in scoring, and was named to the Tournament’s All Star team.

Throughout his exciting 11 years of playing lacrosse in Calgary and working up through the ranks Dahms has always enjoyed and appreciated the tremendous support of his family, who in turn participate because of his keen love for the rugged game! His father Michael, who was also born and raised in Ponoka and is now a chiropractor in Calgary, has been a member of the coaching staff since his son started playing. His mother Cindy, a retired Physical Education teacher has been the Shamrock’s team manager for every one of Danny’s teams, while sister Jessica, a preschool/recreational/competitive gymnastics coach has served as the team’s fitness coach.

In 2009 Danny Dahms will become a carded player for the Okotoks Junior “A”, and will be pursing his ambitious dream of achieving a U.S. College Team Scholarship. Our best wishes go with him, as well as to his family for their great dedication and encouragement along the way.
