SIX NATIONS — With the ALL West set to open their 2022 season this coming weekend in Langley, BC, ALL East announced their Exhibition tournaments will be held this weekend as well. All games will be open to the public, asking for attendants to have proof of double vaccination to show for admittance into both host arenas, including the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena (ILA).
Saturday December 11th at Millbrook Arena in Millbrook, Ont. will see 3 exhibition games:
3:30 p.m., Oshawa Outlaws vs Whitby Steelhawks
5:30 p.m., Peterborough Timbermen vs Oshawa Outlaws
7:30 p.m., Whitby Steelhawks vs Peterborough Timbermen
Millbrook Games will be 4 – 15 minute quarters with the 4th quarter stop time.
Sunday December 12th at Iroquois Lacrosse Arena (ILA) on the Six Nations reserve will see 4 exhibition games:
1:30pm Toronto Monarchs vs St. Catharines ShockWave
3:00pm Six Nations Snipers vs Toronto Monarchs
4:30pm St. Catharines ShockWave vs Paris RiverWolves
6:00pm Paris RiverWolves vs Six Nations Snipers
ILA Games will be 4 – 12 minute quarters with the last 5 minutes of the 4th quarter stop time providing goal differential is 3 or less.
The ALL plays under the same game rules as the NLL, providing high-level competition and exposure that provides NLL management and executives the opportunity to monitor individual progress through game webcasting and statistics. Game evaluations from ALL West coaches will assist in development of players who are currently on NLL practice rosters or are ready for in-season call-ups.
Formed in 2017, the ALL is regarded as the National Lacrosse League’s minor league, and with seven Ontario-based teams in the ALL prior to the launch of the ALL West, 15 per cent of the current NLL players have played at least one game in the ALL.
