As a further follow up to the Ontario Lacrosse Association announcement on March 13, 2020 regarding an immediate pause on sanctioned events and activities, and in light of ongoing developments and legislation, the OLA is prepared to continue the postponement of in-person lacrosse activities until May 15th, as announced in today’s directive:
The Ontario Lacrosse Association, in consultation with its Board of Directors, have been monitoring the most recent developments with COVID-19 and the ongoing public health emergency, and are currently assessing next steps for the 2020 season. We remain optimistic as we continue to model multiple Return-To-Play action plans based on a number of scenarios, although we recognize that there is not a uniform direction available as it relates to municipal sports at this point.
At this time, the OLA is also asking teams and associations at all divisions of play to actively communicate with their association members by posting this directive to their website, sharing it to their registered members via email, and using social media. We have received a variety of inquiries from participants and parents requesting information contained within our directives. It is critical for all leagues and zones to keep their members informed during these challenging times using the information provided by the OLA.
Wishing you good health and safety while we work together to get through this difficult time. Further information will be communicated when it is available.
