SIX NATIONS – The Six Nations Minor Lacrosse Association opened the registration portal on June 24, and with money being tight with many families due to COVID-19, the SNMLA offered free registration with limited space.
The programming will be house league level as per the guidelines.
The current rules are as follows: teams will consist of 9 players and a goalie. All players and coaches will meet outside the fences before practice/games at designated meeting area, masks are required. All participants will complete pre screening on team snap app before entering fields. All practices run for 45 mins to ensure time to clean equipment in between practices. Teams will be broken up with players from each 1,2,3 team from previous years. Players must bring own water bottle with name on. Full equipment needed. Cleats are allowed on fields but not allowed on track. The practices were hoped to begin on July 5th depending on registration.
The SNMLA also provided a call out for more referees: with referee fees to be waived. The first 8 weeks of practices are planned to run July-August. The association will then reevaluate COVID guidelines for a fall ball in September and October.
