CMLA 2021 Season Update

Posted by Cornwall Minor Lacrosse Association on Mar 07 2021 at 10:39AM PST

March 7, 2021- CMLA season update. Thank you for your patience. As we previously posted, using feedback from the Return to Play survey, we developed a plan for an initial 10 week season (6 sessions of winter skills/level sorting over 4 weeks and a 6 week interlocking league with Akwesasne). We hoped to follow this up with a more competitive program (for those interested and if/when restrictions allowed). Registration was to open this week. As ice is staying in the Benson Centre longer this year, we booked our floor time at the Civic Complex. Unfortunately, we were notified on Friday that the Civic Complex arena floor is being considered for the vaccine clinic, which leaves us without a facility to play until May when ice is removed from a pad in the Benson Centre. This is certainly disappointing as we know that the kids are chomping to get back on the floor. We are trying to work with the City to resolve this situation. Please rest assured that the CMLA executive recognizes the negative impact that COVID-related restrictions have had on our youth and are committed to getting kids physically active and having fun in a safe environment. We will keep you posted with all relevant developments
