We have some exciting news for Minor Lacrosse in Alberta.
The Alberta Lacrosse Association has voted in favor of accepting a new age division, 18U.

We support all players to take the next step and play Junior, while also recognizing that some are hesitant for various reasons to take this step following 16U (Midget).

We are overjoyed that we are now able to offer an additional age division for those who would like the option to continue in Minor Lacrosse. All of our clubs will be encouraged to open registration for this new age division for the 2022 season.
