Are You Ready to Return To Play?
Submitted By Nathan Joyes on Tuesday, June 23, 2020
March 17th, a sombre day for Ontarian's, it marks the first day that Premier Doug Ford put the province into a state of emergency. This resulted in the cancellation of facility bookings across the province including our facilities in Centre Wellington.

With facilities closed, we haven't been able to do much until now!

Since Ontario was closed by the premier, there has been a lot of significant dates. Probably the most significant one for lacrosse fans in Centre Wellington will be June 17th.

March 31st, delays to the start of the field lacrosse season, hints of potential issues with the start of box arise.

April 20th, Zone 8 recognizes that this state of emergency is not going to be lifted anytime soon, and in a unanimous vote across the Zone 8 board, and association presidents the traditional box lacrosse season within Zone 8 was cancelled.

June 11, the Ontario Lacrosse Association officially cancelled the traditional box lacrosse season issuing a statement to the public.

June 12th, the Ontario public sees more signs that we are getting closer to the end of the state of emergency. Groups of 10 are allowed to gather in public places with physical distance observed 87 days after the state of emergency was declared.

June 17th, your Centre Wellington Minor Lacrosse Association executive met to discuss and brainstorm return to play actions and options.
