The game of lacrosse is steeped deeply in the historical past of this community, dating back to the 1860's. The Orangeville Dufferins won the very first Ontario Lacrosse Association championship in 1897, and repeated this feat in 1900 and 1901. In 1908 a member of the Dufferins, Dr. G.H. Campbell was chosen to play on the Canadian Olympic Gold Medal winning team. During this era local businesses would close their doors on the afternoons that the team played, and as many as 3 000 people would attend the field games.
