All funds raised will be going right back into youth sport organizations in Kamloops and area. Purchasing a ticket will go directly to fundraising for Kamloops Minor Lacrosse Association. https://kamloopssportscouncil.rafflenexus.com/a/kmla

BC Restart Plan 2.0 - Step 3

The Creator’s Game, Lacrosse, offers participants physical activity and the opportunity to play Canada’s National
Summer Sport, the oldest Canadian sport.

The Province of BC is now in Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan as of July 1, 2021. Sport organizations will transition back to close to normal sport operations with fewer restrictions and guidelines moving forward. This refined Return to Lacrosse document is to assist our members in their Return to Lacrosse with sport-specific guidelines created by the BCLA.

viaSport BC’s Return to Sport Restart Plan 2.0 aligns with BC’s Restart Plan for sport to operate safely during COVID-19.
This document provides guidelines and considerations for viaSport’s Restart Plan 2.0 as it relates to Lacrosse activities.
When Kamloops Minor Lacrosse Association (KMLA) is making decisions about returning to sport, we have been
advised to carefully introduce new activities as well as continuing to follow the BC Health authorities’ guidance. We
must all understand that each city/municipality has different limitations, therefore, we have been asked to work
closely with the City of Kamloops to follow their guidelines, to offer a safe environment for all participants.

Prior to the cancellation of the 2020 season, Adam Kaufman, Store Manager at BigSteelBox, helped MKLA to purchase a c-can at a reduced cost equal to 2 jersey sponsorships!!

We purchased the c-can container in 2019, with the help of a grant made available to us by the Kamloops Sports Legacy Fund. The c-can is used to house the majority of our equipment for the association. Your Support is appreciated.

Big Steel Box is fantastic to deal with! They are knowledgeable, accommodating and have very friendly staff.

Check them out for any of your storage needs.
