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.
2022 will also be the first time in history the games will include an all-female box lacrosse tournament.
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..
The 2022 Canada Summer Games will take place August 6-21, 2022 in Niagara, Ontario.
