2021 -- It's On Like...
Submitted By Nathan Joyes on Friday, June 18, 2021
Your Centre Wellington Minor Lacrosse Association executive is thrilled to announce the return of lacrosse for the summer of 2021! We will remain outside this year continuing to play the hybrid game introduced last year.

Format Advantages

  • Small teams = more touches, and more playing time
  • Small field size = more passing/catching, less chasing the ball
  • No face-offs = action-packed gaming
  • No contact = skills work, game finesse, and LaxIQ development
  • Required passes = no track meet shooting gallery

Program Timeline

Tentatively booked to start July 5th, and running for 8 weeks. The Paperweight Select and U9 - U22 Teams are expected to have two field times per week, with the first week practicing as a team. The remaining 7 weeks to consist of games. The Peanut and Paperweight program will run on Thursday nights.

When do we Play?

Moving back to a more traditional format, we will be scheduling the main program content for Monday - Thursday night, approximately 6-9 pm (Peanuts are 5:30 - 6:00 pm). However, the fields will be available to coaches at all times, and so additional field time can be used at the coaches discretion.

Our #LoLaxers, or Ladies of Lacrosse for those moms/sisters/aunts that want to try out the sport, are set to play on Sunday nights.

Who Will We Be Playing?

Similar to 2020, CW first partnered with the Guelph Regals for this program. Since that partnership was first established Kitchener-Waterloo, and Cambridge have also joined in. As of June 18th, games will be rotated between the Fergus Arena, the fields on the north end of Guelph (Victoria Road Rec Centre area), and the northeast end of Kitchener-Waterloo (Bloomingdale/Northfield areas).

Equipment

Without the full details of the provincial return to sport, we have opted to remain non-contact for another year. Helmets with facemask and gloves are required, slash guards recommended. All other equipment is optional based on player preference.

New to lacrosse? CW Sports will again be offering a free lacrosse stick to all new registrations this season!

Fee Schedule

Peanut Skills Lacrosse - $30

Paperweight Skills Lacrosse - $50

Paperweight - U22 RTA - $100

Refunds will be made 100% up to the start of each program less $30. After the start of programming, refunds will be prorated and awarded on a case-by-case basis less the aforementioned administrative processing fees.

What else?

Our COVID protocols from 2020 will be updated to comply with the regulations to be released from the province for 2021 - Stage 2.

We need Your Input!

Early in 2021 we announced through a news release plans to change the name of CWMLA. This is your opportunity to let us know your feedback on the shortlist of three names, all of which have a unique connection to our community.

The 67’s
Our community is built on 2 major roadways, Highway 6 and County Road 7. This name 67’s pays homage to two arterial roads leading into our great community.

Riverhawks
Making its home along the mighty Grand River, the Osprey keeps watch over the community. This majestic bird-of-prey is native to the community of Centre Wellington and commonly known as a Riverhawk.

Wolves

Wolves are fiercely territorial and never seen far from their pack. The name Centre Wellington Wolves pre-dates amalgamation when the first minor field lacrosse team was brought to our community. The name is perpetuated with the national championship-winning Centre Wellington Wolves senior men’s field lacrosse team.

Members will be asked for their direct feedback during registration.

Community members are welcome to provide their input on this Google Form.

We hope you're as excited for the return of lacrosse as we are!
