Canadian Lacrosse Association COVID-19 UPDATE
Ottawa, ON — The Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following the advice of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Government of Canada. At this time, it is the CLA’s recommendation that all lacrosse activities be suspended in Canada until the end of April.
“These are unprecedented times. The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving around the world and within Canada. The safety of lacrosse players, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents, fans and everyone in the lacrosse community are the CLA’s top priority. Safety is at the forefront of the CLA’s recommendation for extending the suspension of activities until the end of April,” said Shawn Williams, president of the Canadian Lacrosse Association.
The CLA’s semi-annual meeting, scheduled for May in PEI, is being moved online. Those who would be attending the semi-annual meeting will receive an updated schedule in the coming weeks.
National championships are at the heart of lacrosse in Canada and many players look forward to these competitions every year. The CLA will be making a decision by May 15 regarding national championships for the 2020 season.
The CLA encourages all MAs and those in the lacrosse community to refer to experts in their jurisdiction for updated information on COVID-19 related to their area. The CLA will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments in consultation with all public health authorities, Member Associations and relevant governing bodies to provide updates.
