News and Announcements


Due to the frozen fields and weather conditions, all BCLA Field Provincials have been cancelled.
All U11, U13, U15, U18 Men’s and U12, U15 and U19 Women’s field lacrosse Provincials will not be rescheduled. The safety of our athletes and field conditions are of the highest priority.

The British Columbia Lacrosse Association will be trying to reschedule the Women’s Umpire Clinic as soon as possible.
