Return to Play is In-Progress
Submitted By Nathan Joyes on Sunday, July 26, 2020
Since the last posting about return-to-play, you have provided some great player feedback that falls inline with our coaches feedback. The message is clear, you want to get back together to PLAY!!!

But, we have some things to work through.

As the province continues to open up, your CWMLA executive has had a chance to review the great feedback provided on our return-to-play surveys. The whole board met and formed a subcommittee to flush out the details of what the program will look like -- based on your input. There are lots of things to factor in:

  • how long the program should run
  • what equipment we need to have
  • what insurance we need to have
  • what facilities we should use
  • how much it should cost

The OLA insurance program hasn't changed since before COVID-19, but we need to ensure that our players, coaches, other volunteers, and the executive are all properly protected before play returns to normal. Everyone involved needs to be kept safe!

Lately, a lot of lacrosse program information has flowed into my inbox, as I am sure it has yours. 

  • The OLA has released its Phase 2 & 3 program for return-to-activity.
  • The OMFLL is looking to startup for the Fall season and is looking for teams.
  • The ULL has spun up, holding multiple combines to seed players for their upcoming season.
  • RLX of Rockwood has been running skills programs for the past few weeks.
  • The TRAC has started preparation for their return to train and Rock Elite development league.
  • Our partner ForgeX has released their August Accelerate program, with a CWMLA exclusive promotion.

It's great to see the interest in our community and return to play.

It's great to see the back slope on Canada's epidemic curve heading towards zero.

It's great to see the lacrosse nets behind the Fergus Arena, and at the South Ridge Park in Elora used consistently.

It's great to see the return to activity from many different lacrosse program providers in the area.

We're working for you, and hoping to see everyone on the field/floor soon!
