SIX NATIONS – How big is lacrosse at Six Nations? Let these statistics speak for themselves. There are five Jr. and Sr. Ontario Lacrosse Association teams and a Can/Am Sr. B team which all call Six Nations home.
Supplying talent to these teams is a minor lacrosse system second to none with great coaches, many times supplied by retired, or even active pro players.
One of the best, designated year-round lacrosse arenas in the province, if not the world, in the privately owned and operated Iroquois Lacrosse Arena. The hard surface at the Gaylord Powless Arena, also provides floor time for lacrosse in the summer.
A long and ever growing list of Six Nations inductees, enshrined in both the Ontario and Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
Heading into this week’s games, the Six Nations Warriors are first in the OLA Jr. C; The Six Nations Rebels are way out in the lead in the OLA Jr. B standings; the Six Nations Arrows top the Jr. A’s, while the Sr. B Rivermen hold top spot as does the Major Series Chiefs.
The Can/Am Slash were to only team not in first place going into last weekend’s games, however, they are now 6-3 and in second after defeating Rochester River Monsters 14-12 in overtime.
