News and Announcements
To align with the global strategies being taken to slow the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Ontario Lacrosse Association has announced the postponement of in-person lacrosse activities until May 15, 2020. As such, all further winter skills sessions are postponed. Once the immediate crisis has passed (and we know definitively that public facilities will reopen), we will advertise dates/times to make up the sessions. We are also looking at options for our regular season, including extending house league over the summer months and condensing the rep season. We are grateful for your understanding and your desire to begin the 2020 season with us as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay safe Celtics!
