COVID-19 Update May 2, 2020

As the situation around COVID-19 develops, the Manitoba Lacrosse Association continues to evaluate all options for programming in 2020. As of now, all MLA-sanctioned activity remains postponed until further notice. The government of Manitoba has announced the start of its reopening plan; however, this does not include the resumption of youth contact sports. Though it is clear that the season will not go on as we know it, the MLA board has not ruled out any mid-to-late-summer programming at this time, should it be deemed safe to do so.

A decision on National Championships will be coming from the Canadian Lacrosse Association by the end of May.

The MLA office will continue to be closed while staff are working remotely. Please contact MLA Executive Director Matt Mason at lacrosse@sportmanitoba.ca for any inquiries.

The MLA will continue to be in communication with its membership as the reopening process in Manitoba develops. In the meantime, continue doing your part in keeping the curve flat in hopes that we can safely resume the sport we all love in 2020.

COVID-19 Update April 1, 2020

In response to the recent developments regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the MLA has released an address updating the current state of lacrosse in Manitoba.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to MLA Executive Director Matt Mason at lacrosse@sportmanitoba.ca.

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.
