UPDATE: *STATUS OF THE 2020 NORTHMEN LACROSSE GIRLS FIELD HOUSE LEAGUE PROGRAM

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.

Regards,

R. Kent Davis

President

Lacrosse Equipment

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
