Update: 2021 Return to Lacrosse

If it was a regular year the 2021 Lacrosse Season would be upon us, but it is not a regular year. I hope that everyone has remained safe, and is looking forward to playing Lacrosse again.

The OLA has just released their guidelines for a “Return to Activity” in 2021. I would like everyone to know that your Association is working hard on a plan to offer the best possible lacrosse programs in Women’s Lacrosse, Men’s Field Lacrosse, and Box Lacrosse for 2021, while following all Heath & Safety protocols to keep you, our members safe. We are continuing to discuss different ways of returning to play, not only within our own organization, but possibly also with other organizations. We don’t as of yet have a definite date when programs will start, but we will be updating everyone with our plans in the coming weeks. Thank you very much for all your support and patience, and feel good knowing that Lacrosse is returning to Orangeville in 2021.

Lacrosse Equipment

Congratulations to Orangeville Northmen Phil Sanderson

Hockey And Lacrosse Are Very Similar Sports.

Hockey players excel in lacrosse and, in turn, they become markedly better hockey players. Both hockey and lacrosse are high tempo, physical team sports that have similar elements to the game. Both sports utilize 5 players and a goalie, three periods and strategy of developing odd-man situations to create scoring opportunities.

Comparatively, lacrosse is a much less expensive sport than hockey and uses much of the same protective upper body equipment.

Hockey Players Benefit From Lacrosse By Developing:

  • stick handling creativity
  • creativity in tight areas
  • creativity of fakes, back passes and shots
  • use of both hands
  • reading the play offensively
  • strong, dynamic defensive tactics
  • builds up strength and endurance
  • prevents sport burn-out by playing a new, fast-paced sport
  • increases hand-eye coordination
  • teaches players to be more aware of their surroundings
  • reinforces the importance of quickness and agility around the net
  • leadership skills
  • scoring skills are honed by shooting at smaller targets and picking corners
