HOUSE LEAGUE SCHEDULE

Exciting News!

Kawartha Lakes Lacrosse has an exciting announcement about the House League Lacrosse season.

This season Kawartha Lakes house league lacrosse will be operating out of the Lindsay Rec Centre, Fenelon Falls Community Centre and Little Britain Community Centre for the first month of the season.  In May we will be moving primarly into the Lindsay Rec Centre for the remainder of the season.  We will have full access to both pads most of the time here, which will benefit our organization and families.  This will allow organizers to better oversee each age group, promote fair play and answer all questions on the spot.  It will also allow families to better organize schedules knowing that they will always be at the same arena.

The KLMLA is always trying to grow the game in the Kawartha Lakes region, this move will allow us greater publicity and advertising by being in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes.  We hope you see the benefits this will have for our organization and continue in the same direction of growth and commitment to excellence with Kawartha Lakes Minor Lacrosse.

We look forward to another great season of Fury Lacrosse!

2017 Kawartha Fury House League Lacrosse changes and Overview

Kawartha Minor Lacrosse has made some changes to the house league format for the 2017 season. First off, we will be changing the practice and game format. This year each team will have a 20 minute practice followed by a 40 minute game versus an opponent for the first 4 weeks. After the first 4 weeks, it will go into straight games versus an opponent. The first 4 weeks of practice will focus on the basics of offense, defense and player safety. We will be allowing modified contact in each division. It will be monitored and continually taught throughout the season. This will include: how to cross check, how to receive a cross check, body positioning on loose balls and body positioning near the boards. This will ensure each player plays with the confidence they need to be successful on the floor.

Also, for the 2017 season, we will be including representative players from paperweight through to peewee divisions. All players in the age groups paperweight to peewee will register for house league lacrosse first and then have the opportunity to tryout for his/hers box representative team if they wish. Please note that if the child is wishing to play Kawartha Lakes rep field lacrosse only, it is a separate registration and they do not have to register for house league before trying out.

Upon successfully making their respective rep team the players yearly fee will be adjusted accordingly. If the player choses not to tryout for a rep team they will pay a one time fee upon registration.  Rep players from paperweight to peewee will be expected to participate in house league practices and games that do not conflict with their rep schedule. Without the support from representative players in the house league program it will be very difficult to successfully run a program that will help develop players. Our goal is to grow as an organization and with your support Kawartha Lakes lacrosse has a very promising future.


We have chosen to include rep players for various reasons, one major reason being player development. Many young lacrosse players are visual learners and by adding rep players it will improve the quality of lacrosse on the floor. New players to the game will benefit from participating with rep players by improving their own skills. Ball movement, knowledge of the game and individual player development will all increase for newcomers and rep players.

 

Another major reason why rep players have been included in house league is to increase numbers in each division. By increasing numbers, we are able to increase the number of games played and number of teams in each division.

 

Rep players in house league is a proven model for player development. We hope to make 2017 an exciting year for lacrosse and it begins with your participation! We look forward to seeing all returning families in the rinks and we welcome all new families to Kawartha Lakes lacrosse.

 

Thank you,

Kawartha Lakes Minor Lacrosse Association
