We are excited to share that Hamilton Lacrosse has been selected by @CTJumpstart to receive a grant from their Sport Relief Fund. The fund helps community sport organizations like ours continue to provide access to sport and play for Canadian kids. This grant will go a long way towards helping us grow the sport of lacrosse in Hamilton! #SportReliefFund
The response has been overwhelming to our pre-registration survey and we thank everyone who took the time to respond. We hear you loud and clear: whether it is skills sessions, house league, or regional play for our rep teams, players and families are excited to get back on the field and floor to play lacrosse in Hamilton!
So what did the over 300 survey results tell us?
· 92% of respondents would participate in skills sessions
· 96% of respondents would participate in house league play
· 99% of travel team respondents would participate in regional play
The Hamilton Lacrosse executive is actively working to develop multiple return to play strategies that can be deployed once sport is allowed to return. We know how important sports programing is for both the physical and mental health of our players and we remain committed as an organization to getting players back to playing lacrosse.
Please stay tuned for some exciting contests on our social media platforms over the coming weeks, and we hope to have programing and registration details to you soon!
The OLA has published the official Return to Play Guidelines for the 2021 season. This document can be accessed via the link below.
For the upcoming season, the OLA has indicated that there will be no physical contact as part of the game. They have also communicated that there will be no tournaments and no Provincials this season.
With these guidelines in place we still strongly believe we can provide a great lacrosse experience for HLA players and their families. We look forward to seeing everyone in the rinks and at the fields this year!
