Team Manitoba Boys 17U Canada Games Selection Camp Announced


Jul. 16, 2021


2022 Canada Games 17U Boys Box Lacrosse Team

With 2022 being the first year of lacrosse's inclusion in the Canada Summer Games since 1985, the Manitoba Lacrosse Association is excited for the opportunity that this presents our athletes. 

The Canada Games, held every two years, alternating between summer and winter, are the largest multi-sport event in the country and represent the pinnacle of interprovincial/territorial sport competition. As the best in their age group, these young competitors come to the Games having trained long and hard to be among those chosen to represent their respective province or territory. Since 1967, nearly 100,000 athletes have participated in the Games with hundreds of thousands having engaged in try-outs and qualifying events. Add to that the over 100,000 coaches, officials and volunteers that have been directly involved in the planning and staging of the Games and you have some idea as to the enormous reach of the Canada Games over a proud history.

Manitoba has assembled an excellent staff for its 17U Boys Lacrosse Team. Led by Head Coach Cory Henkewich, this homegrown staff brings an element of relative youth to the program along with their wealth of knowledge and experience gained from the junior and collegiate levels up to the pros. 

The 2022 Canada Summer Games will take place August 6-21, 2022 in Niagara, Ontario.
