News and Announcements
It has been brought to the attention of the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) that the Under Armour Pro Box Lacrosse Cage Face Mask is being falsely advertised as being “CLA Approved” and claiming to “meet CSA standards”.
The CLA would like to clearly state that as of February 27, 2014 the Under Armour Pro Box Lacrosse Cage Face Mask is NOT CSA-approved and therefore is not legal for use per CLA policy 12.4.2. The CLA has confirmed that although Under Armour is in the process of obtaining CSA approval, there are a number of components missing and therefore the certification has not been granted.
The CLA does not approve facemasks for lacrosse. The CLA endorses facemasks that are approved by the CSA.
KMLA’s U12 Field Lacrosse Team Silver this past week-end in Tier 2 Provincials in Burnaby!
You see a great play during a hockey game and say …. man, that was trick, how did he do that?
Well, here’s something interesting you might not know!
2014 Olympic Men’s Hockey Team
The no look shot Drew Doughty scored as Canada’s first goal had us wondering whether Drew Doughty ever played lacrosse. A right handed shot defensemen scoring with no look shot from the left side of the ice. That can’t be a coincidence.
Sure enough, Drew played minor lacrosse in London, Ontario. So, we have David Bolland (a former Mimico lacrosse star) scoring a Stanley Cup winning goal and Drew Doughty scoring the only goals for Team Canada in a big game against the Finns. Both were lacrosse players.
Perhaps the brain trust at Hockey Canada should start promoting box lacrosse instead of hockey 365 days per year.
