After careful review of the OLA Return to Activity Guide, and the Phase 2 Reopening Guidelines of both the Province of Ontario, and the County of Dufferin, the OMLA Executive still have many concerns for the Health and Safety of our Association members. It is because of these concerns and the many restrictions that we do not believe we are able to offer any type of productive programming at this time. We continue to closely monitor the situation, and if things improve, we remain open to offering some type of program.
There is still a possibility that both Men & Women’s Field could have a fall season beginning in early September. We are working hard with the OMFLL and the OWFLL to try and put together a Field Fall Program. Please check the website frequently for further updates.

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: https://forms.gle/SjVJB1u5jDbKrSVW6
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay well and we hope to see everyone at the rink and on the field soon!

What do you miss the most about Lacrosse???
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.
