LARRY ZIFFLE - OBITUARY - MAY 23, 2015

Manitoba Lacrosse is sad to report the loss of one of it's longstanding members, Larry Ziffle. Larry passed away on Saturday, May 23rd, 2015.

Larry has a lengthy history with lacrosse in Manitoba; as a player, coach referee and lacrosse community member. He was active within the Falcons Lacrosse organization and was a current board member of the Manitoba Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

 

Larry had a love of photography. When illness started to keep Larry from officiating or coaching, he could always be seen at box or field events with his camera. Larry captured lacrosse talent in Manitoba through his wonderful photos. Never for profit, he shared all of his photos with various lacrosse associations and individuals, posting online at flickr.com. In prior years, Larry was instrumental in organizing the Thompson vs Winnipeg senior men's lacrosse annual tournament. Larry's presence at lacrosse will be missed.

Our condolences are extended to Larry's family.

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.
