Covid Season

SMLA will be closely following the Return to Sports Framework and working diligently to ensure we meet requirements for return to play when that time arises. 

SMLA will be closely following the Return to Sports Framework and working diligently to ensure we meet requirements for return to play when that time arises. 

Registration fees are adjusted annually as required to ensure that SMLA brings in sufficient income to ensure lacrosse can start season after season without financial restraint or concern.  As each of you can imagine, there are a lot of expenses that go along with starting and running the lacrosse season.

Next season will be difficult to predict our expenses as there will be several changes to lacrosse (as in many sports) such as limits on the number of players on the floor, how dressing rooms will be used, if at all; if spectators well be permitted; will we play 5 on 5 lacrosse, will there be tournaments.............etc. etc. etc.  The biggest question right now is WHEN WILL THE LACROSSE SEASON START?

Unfortunately that cannot be answered, and we do not know when we will be able to answer that question.  We do know that Norfolk and Haldimand County staff will be working very hard in preparing facilities and having processes in place for us to follow.  The hockey season will no doubt set the standard for how our lacrosse season will run and when our season will start.  SMLA will fully support and strictly follow any guidelines put in place by Norfolk and Haldimand County and we appreciate their effort in ensuring our safety and ability to use the facilities.

We have a great group of volunteers in our executive and coaching staffs!  We are certain everyone will be eager to get back on the floor!  Your support and trust in those volunteers will be important in keeping kids on the floor and keeping them safe.  Lacrosse is going to look very different next season.  “Normal" may seem a long way away, but we will do our best in being prepared to reunite our lacrosse families.

Stay safe and have an amazing summer!
