MLA Pre-Season Press Release

Lacrosse Season is Finally Here!

Winnipeg, Manitoba, April 24, 2017– The MLA is excited for the beginning of the 2017 Box and Field Lacrosse Season! We would like to wish all our players within the Red River Lacrosse Association good luck as they begin their box lacrosse season tonight across Winnipeg. Furthermore, the Manitoba High School Field Lacrosse League is set to kick off their season briefly after the RRLA, as they have a series of games slated for this Friday at Glenlawn Collegiate. Thompson Lacrosse Association, Carberry Lacrosse, and Dauphin Lacrosse have all began organizing and practicing for the upcoming season as well.

The Manitoba Blizzard open their season this Saturday and Sunday with three games against the Sherwood Park Titans. We hope that former and current players will make the trip out to Notre Dame arena to support the Blizzard.

In other news, MLA Board Member and RRLA Referee-in-Chief Bruce Paton has informed MLA President Paul Magnan that he will be taking a leave of absence from both associations effective immediately. Mr. Paton will stay involved as the RIC with the Canadian Lacrosse Association.

All Team Manitoba Try-Outs have been announced and we look forward to seeing some new and old faces represent our province on the national stage.

The MLA is excited about what this new lacrosse year will bring for our players, coaches, officials and volunteers!
