2020 Lacrosse Season Update
On May 11 the Town of Orangeville issued the following statement;
"Following the Lead of the federal government, and in support of the provincial order restricting gatherings, the Town of Orangeville will extend the cancellation of its recreational programs and public events up to July 6".
The OMLA supports the Town of Orangeville in this decision, even though it is not what we wanted to hear. The safety and well being of the community must be the number one priority. Unfortunately this closure will again effect our ability to offer some programs, and therefore I am announcing the cancellation of our Girls Field House League Program. Full refunds will be issued as soon as possible.

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.
