Update from the President (6/20/2020)
Hello Kamloops Minor Lacrosse parents,
First, I would like to thank everyone for their continued patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation. We have been working hard amidst all the unknowns to find a way to have a 2020 box lacrosse season. Unfortunately, the difficult decision was made to cancel the season. It with the support of the box lacrosse and field lacrosse governing bodies and in consultation with the CLA’s Member Associations we came to this conclusion. Health and safety, travel concerns, venue closures, and many other factors were taken into consideration. Return-to-play or return-to-activity is in different phases across the province, provides unique challenges.
We continue to stress that when we do return to activity, the health and safety for all participants in the Lacrosse community is paramount and this is central to all our decisions around COVID-19. All involved in our sport must take direction from the appropriate health authorities, including the Public Health Agency of Canada and the BC Ministry of Health.
Full refunds will be provided to all paid registrants. All reimbursements will be sent out by June 19th at the latest, if not received by then please contact the treasurer. Again, we ask that you are patient as our volunteers work on this large project. At this time, we are working with the City of Kamloops, BCLA, ViaSport and various other organizations to come up with a return to play plan. We remain hopeful that we will be able to have a 2020 field lacrosse season. If your children have never played field lacrosse before it is a fantastic sport and kids love with when they get the chance to play it. It is outdoors and is a very good candidate for the return to sport platform.
When more information becomes available, you will be the first to know.
We know this is a difficult time for many and we appreciate your understanding. We are all in this together. Stay Safe and hope to see you in the fall.Thank you,
Kamloops Minor Lacrosse Association.
