U16 PROVINCIAL FIELD LACROSSE TRYOUT UPDATE
The coaching staff has met this past week and limited the U16 roster down to 29 players. This was a very tough task for the coaching staff as everyone worked very hard at tryouts. It is my pleasure to announce the provincial field lacrosse 29 man roster. These 29 players will move on to the next round of the selection process. As mentioned at the end of the last U16 tryout on July 9th, 2014, the coaching staff will be taking a 22 man roster to nationals in Edmonton on August 29th-31st. The final 22 man roster will be announced by Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014.

As we are already booking equipment, bus, rooms etc. for the trip, all players on the current 29 man roster are asked to bring the provincial team fee of $850 in the form of a cheque to the next practice. Any player that doesn't make the final 22 man roster will have their cheque returned.
*Please make cheques payable to "Manitoba Lacrosse".

Listed below is the next practice for the current 29 man roster. Attending this Practice is mandatory to make the team. More Information will be given to the players at this practice.

Field Lacrosse

The traditional game of field lacrosse, known under many names such as Baggataway or Tewaarathon, played a significant role in the community & religious life of tribes across the continent for untold years. It is played outdoors on a 100m x 55m field. Teams consist of 10 players (goaltender, attack, midfielders & defense) of a team roster of 20-30 players.

About Us

The Manitoba Lacrosse Association (incorporated April 28, 1982) claims jurisdiction over and recognizes its responsibilities as the governing body of lacrosse; which includes women's field, men's field, box lacrosse and field lacrosse, as played by members of this Association.

Box Lacrosse

Box Lacrosse is played on a standard-sized arena floor and features 6 players (goaltender and 5 runners) on the floor at one time. Roster size is 18 to 20 players. The strategy is similar to that of basketball, with all five runners involved in the offense and the defense. Added to the appeal are the speed and excitement created by a 30 second shot clock.

Olympic Gold Medal

The 1904 Winnipeg Shamrocks Lacrosse Team holds the distinction of being the only non-winter sport team in Manitoba history to capture Olympic gold.
