Attention QCMBL Members,

As you are aware the last several weeks have been very difficult for many people in Regina, Saskatchewan and the world. The QCMBL Board would like to take the opportunity to let you know that we are thinking about each and every one of you and your families during this challenging time. Many of you have registered your children for the lacrosse season and have been anxiously awaiting a change to the situation, so that normal life can continue as needed. On April 1st, the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) released a statement that they are continuing the suspension of activities until the end of April. With this announcement, you may have questioned what QCMBL is planning to do and if there is a possibility of lacrosse still or if the season is done? We will continue to monitor the situation as we move through April and will seek advice from the Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association (SLA)  and Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) as they try to guide us on moving forward, if and when that can happen. Many things are unknown at this time, but if you would like to reach out to any of our QCMBL Board you can find all the email addresses on the website at www.qcmbl.ca. As soon as we learn more information we will do our best to get it to you through email or social media. Please be safe and take care of your families!

Sincerely,

Danita Achtemichuk

QCMBL President

Ottawa, ON — The Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following the advice of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Government of Canada. At this time, it is the CLA’s recommendation that all lacrosse activities be suspended in Canada until the end of April. 

“These are unprecedented times. The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving around the world and within Canada. The safety of lacrosse players, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents, fans and everyone in the lacrosse community are the CLA’s top priority. Safety is at the forefront of the CLA’s recommendation for extending the suspension of activities until the end of April,” said Shawn Williams, president of the Canadian Lacrosse Association. 

The CLA’s semi-annual meeting, scheduled for May in PEI, is being moved online. Those who would be attending the semi-annual meeting will receive an updated schedule in the coming weeks. 

National championships are at the heart of lacrosse in Canada and many players look forward to these competitions every year. The CLA will be making a decision by May 15 regarding national championships for the 2020 season.  

The CLA encourages all MAs and those in the lacrosse community to refer to experts in their jurisdiction for updated information on COVID-19 related to their area. The CLA will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments in consultation with all public health authorities, Member Associations and relevant governing bodies to provide updates


 

COVID-19

Parents, players, and fellow lacrosse families,


The QCMBL Board has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it relates to not just the
sporting world but also the general health and safety of everyone involved. After much deliberation and
consultation, we as a board, have decided to postpone the Barracuda ‘A’ try-outs this upcoming
weekend. This decision has not been made lightly with all possibilities and options being discussed and
considered. We will continue to monitor the situation and update everyone as it pertains to the Winter Clinics, 
upcoming house league evaluations, Barracuda try-outs, and the QCMBL season.
We hope you can all understand that this decision was not made lightly but we feel that everyone’s
health is our top priority. We will continue to provide updates on a weekly basis as the situation evolves
and progresses.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.

QCMBL President

Danita Achtemichuk
