Mission Field Lacrosse Update - August 11
To our members,
Since the BCLA officially cancelled all box lacrosse due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mission Lacrosse Club executive has been hard at work developing our return to play plans for the upcoming field season. Those plans were submitted to the District of Mission on July 30 and we are currently waiting for a meeting to further discuss those plans.
We have decided to move forward with presenting our plans to the membership, as well as open registration for the 2020-21 field lacrosse season, in order to be better prepared when we are given the green light to proceed.
Field lacrosse this year will look and feel much different due to strict physical distancing protocols and a limit on crowd sizes of more than 50 people. Through various meetings with the PCFLL and BCLA, as well as updates from viaSport, we have decided to split the seasons into two phases. The indications are that both the PCFLL and BCLA are working to allow for official league games to take place as soon as possible once approved by the appropriate BC health officials.
The attached forms will further explain how this will all work for our association. Our return to play plans will also be released once they are approved by the District.
Registration will be open from August 15 to September 18. The window has been shortened in order to help the executive finalize plans such as field times and roster sizes.
There will be no refunds given as fees have been designed to help the club navigate the pandemic and costs such as jerseys and shorts. It’s also been done to keep costs low for families. Team items such as sweatshirts will still be available through respective team managers.
We recognize this has been an extremely different time in all our lives and the future remains uncertain as well. However, we believe we have put the proper protocols in place and have made decisions with the best interests of players and families at heart.
We welcome any questions or concerns. You can email those to Club President Jeff MacAulay (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Field VP Owen Munro (email@example.com). Any questions pertaining to registration can be sent to Jeff or Owen. You can also forward them on to field lacrosse registrar Lisa Pryce (firstname.lastname@example.org).
