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.

OWFL highly recommends the use of goggles at all ages divisions for safety. It is the intent of the OWFL to phase in mandatory goggles for U9, U11 and U13 in the 2020 season. Some OWFL clubs have proactively mandated goggles at all age divisions, Northmen have mandated googles for all house league players.
All players, including the goalkeeper, must properly wear a professionally manufactured mouth guard that fully covers the upper teeth. The mouth guard shall be of any readily visible colour other than colourless or white and must not have graphics of teeth. Mouth guards must not be altered to decrease protection and field players must remove protruding tabs.
Please see the stick list posted above for a listing of all officially legal heads. As per the August 2019 Rule Book, string specifications remain mostly the same, additionally, all pre-sewn pockets are legal and mesh pockets are allowed (Rule 3: The Crosse, Subsection 5).
