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.
