Update: Northmen Rep Box & Women's Field Registration Refund/Registration Credit

Hello Northmen Families,

Further to our announcement regarding the cancellation of our 2020 Box Rep Season and postponement of the Women’s Field Rep Program, this email outlines the steps for issuing refunds to our members. 

We require each member to complete the 2020 Northmen Refund Form by June 30, 2020. Please include all players in your family on the same form. If we do not receive a response by June 30, 2020, we will automatically hold the fees as a credit for 2021. 
2020 Northmen Refund Form:

Your Options

  1. For those who can, we kindly ask that you leave your registration fees with Northmen. Your 2020 registration(s) will be credited to an equivalent 2021 registration and locked in at the 2020 rates. 
  2. Full refund of 2020 Registration Fees. 

As a non-profit organization, we do not have the financial resources to absorb all of the costs that have been incurred from each of our registrations (see below outline of 2020 Ontario Lacrosse Association fees).  As such, the Northmen have decided to offer the either a refund or credit option to our membership in order to sustain our Association through these unprecedented times. 

 This will be a labour intensive process, we ask for patience while we work through each Registrant. If you have any questions, please email our Registrar at

Stay well and we hope to see everyone at the rink and on the field soon!

Lacrosse Equipment

By Kim Bovaird (secretary) 08/17/2017, 10:00am EDT

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
