Last May, the Van Buren School Board approved making lacrosse an official varsity spring sport beginning with the 2018-19 school year. They also approved a cooperative agreement with Huron High School in New Boston, meaning students that attend Huron High School are eligible to play for the Belleville lacrosse team. Lacrosse has been a successful club sport at the youth, junior varsity and varsity levels since 2007. This decision by the school board will make lacrosse more available and affordable for students from Belleville and Huron to play the sport.
The Spring season will be coming up soon (March through June) and BLAA (Belleville Lacrosse Athletic Association), which is the entity running the Belleville/Huron youth programs, are looking for players that are interested in playing the spring season. Although Lacrosse has been around Belleville since 2007, it is still a relatively unknown sport so BLAA is offering some upcoming training sessions for both the HS and Youth players before the season starts.

High school players: January 16 – March 6 (Wednesdays)
Location: High Velocity in Canton
Time: 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Youth players: January 19 – March 2 (Saturdays)
Location: Pryde in Canton
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

If you have a student 3rd grade through 12th grade from Belleville or Huron that is interested in playing and wants to get into the sessions, please contact the BLAA board at for sign-up or to answer any questions you may have.

BLAA is also having a bowling fundraiser at Lodge Lanes that is open to the public on Friday, January 11 at Lodge Lanes in Belleville with check-in starting at 6:30pm. Cost is $25.00/person which gets you two games of bowling, shoes, and one pizza per lane. There will be raffles, 50/50, and other prizes. All proceeds go to BLAA to support and fund our youth Lacrosse program. Space is limited so if you are interested in tickets, please contact us at

Public safety director asks residents to be aware of proper parking at Huron School District buildings

Huron Public Safety Director Everette Robbins

Over the past several months, the Huron Township Department of Public Safety has worked with the Huron School District to clearly post and mark legal parking areas within the school parking lots. This includes clearly marked Handicap Parking as and fire lane restricted areas required by law.

On Friday night, Aug. 31, the Huron Township Police Department issued multiple Parking and Fire Lane citations to vehicles parked in restricted areas. These parking violations create significant safety hazards for everyone attending the event.

“We do not want to have to issue parking violations to our residents or anyone attending one of our school events. However, our first priority must to be the safety of our student athletes along with those who attend any school event. If the fire lanes are not clear, we may be unable to get a Fire Truck or Ambulance to an athlete injured on the field or even a spectator in the stands when their life depends on it. Parking in unauthorized areas can also cause obstructed views which can lead to someone being struck with a vehicle while walking in the parking lot. Our only goal is to provide a safe environment for all involved.” Said Public Safety Director Everette Robbins.

Today, Sept. 4, 2018, our department received numerous complaints about parking violations at both Miller Elementary and Brown Elementary. Citizens reported numerous vehicles parked illegally not only inside the parking lots, but also on Hannan and Middlebelt Roads.

“We understand that things are hectic on the first day and that a higher number of parents than normal take their child to school. This is just a reminder to parents dropping their children off at school that they must park in designated areas. It is important that we save the handicap parking spaces available for those that need them. Again, we are urging residents to park only in legally designated parking spots.”
