All MLA-Sanctioned Activities Postponed Until Further Notice Due To Concern Over COVID-19

Following the decision of other Provincial and National Sport Organizations, the Manitoba Lacrosse Association has made the difficult decision to postpone all MLA-sanctioned activities until further notice due to concerns over COVID-19. The health and safety of our lacrosse family is our top priority and it is with your protection in mind that the Manitoba Lacrosse Association Board of Directors has decided on taking these measures. All games, practices, programs, camps, and clinics are to be postponed until further notice, effective March 14, 2020.

The MLA recognizes the amount of work that has been put forth by our volunteers and athletes in preparation for the start of the 2020 Box and Field Lacrosse seasons, but at this time, we feel this is the necessary precaution to take in order to do our part in keeping our community safe. Though we cannot provide a timeline on when activities will resume, we assure you that any developments will be communicated with our membership.
