Dear Hamilton Lacrosse Families,
On June 11th, the Ontario Lacrosse Association announced the cancellation of regularly-scheduled box lacrosse programming for 2020. This communication can be found at: https://ontariolacrosse.com/news.
Although we knew this was likely the outcome, it is still difficult news for everyone who supports and is involved with Hamilton Lacrosse.
While the traditional lacrosse season will not occur this year, the OLA is actively working on a Return to Activity/Play plan for fundamental skill development, drills, and local outdoor activities for associations across Ontario. The OLA also remains hopeful that minor boys field lacrosse will run this year as a fall program.
Women’s field lacrosse regular competitive programming has been cancelled as per OWFL https://www.instagram.com/p/CAf1d0iBaGx/?igshid=1jh198qbwrhg4.
We are hoping to hold outdoor skill sessions for the girls if Hamilton fields open with safety precautions in place.

Hamilton Lacrosse Association is a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to teaching lacrosse to girls and boys ages 3 to 21 years old since 1965. HLA offers house league and rep programs in both Box and Field lacrosse.

GET BACK TO ACTIVITY. GIRLS' FIELD LACROSSE CLINIC
Hope everyone is well and is having a relaxing, safe summer. We have missed you all and are sad about the girls’ lacrosse season. However, some great news, we’ve been approved to run a short skills clinic for small groups of 8 participants/ 2 coaches. Everything will be social distanced, no contact and follow guidelines detailed by Hamilton Public Health and the OLA RTA.
Girls’ field lacrosse is offering you 4 weeks of training sessions (two days a week) on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting this Tuesday., July 14, 2020. Sessions will run 6-7 p.m., for U11/13 and 7:30-8:30 for U15/19. (max of 8 player in each age division).
The cost is $30 per player to cover field rentals and some incidentals. Everyone must be pre-registered, under the 2020 RTA Try Lacrosse program in the registration portal.

It’s been a fast turnaround to get this program running. We at HLA are working hard to make sure this program is both safe and practical for players and parents.
