The Ontario Lacrosse Association has introduced an Criminal Check policy for all coaches and trainers effective 2015. Each bench staff member will be required to provide a criminal background check along with their coaching/training credentials prior to being able to partake in team activities.
This is not much different then what the BMLA has been doing for years, it is just more formalized.
The Brampton Sport Alliance (B.S.A.) provides a voice for youth sports groups and a forum for these groups to share solutions to common problems and challenges facing volunteer-based youth sport organizations. The B.S.A. represents 22 affiliated minor sport organizations.
The primary goal of youth sports in the City of Brampton is to help youth find success in sport, which makes them feel valued and wanted. Every child can be successful in one sport or another.

We are hosting a recruitment contest for all players that were registered with the BMLA in 2016. In conjunction with our try-it sessions, we are looking for our current players to bring a friend to one, or all of our try-it sessions, and try our great sport of Lacrosse. All you need to do is bring a friend that wasn’t registered with the BMLA in 2016 and your name will be entered into a draw. 1 ballot for each new player/friend.
Current players are welcome to come out and participate as long as they bring a friend that is new to lacrosse. Helmet and running shoes are required. Gloves are recommended. We will have sticks available for use.

75th Anniversary Logo
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association, your current executive have come up with a commemorative logo. This modern sleek looking logo clearly defines and portrays our 75th Anniversary. It incorporates our current BMLA logo as well as the outline of a plastic lacrosse head, used in both men and womens lacrosse. It also identifies the year that the BMLA was established.
Lacrosse had existed in Brampton prior to 1943, primarily at the senior level under the helm of the Brampton Excelsiors Lacrosse Club. The minor programs were played under various local organizations and names.
In 1943, the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association (BMLA) was established. Today, we still have both the BELC and the BMLA. The BELC includes players aged 17 and older and the BMLA includes players that are 3-16 years of age. The BMLA is still providing the young citizens of Brampton an opportunity to play our great sport.
We are proud to celebrate our 75th year!!!
This logo will be crested on all of our 2017 jerseys that are being purchased this year for both the rep and house league programs.

Lacrosse is a major thread in the fabric of Brampton's, and indeed Canada's heritage, with records indicating that the game has been played in our community since the 1860's. Brampton Minor Lacrosse has grown to become one of the largest Lacrosse associations in Canada. We offer recreational and representative Lacrosse programs in Box Lacrosse, Field Lacrosse and Girl's Field Lacrosse to children aged 4 to 20.
It is one of the goals of the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association to ...
... work to promote and sustain Youth Lacrosse within the City of Brampton, providing opportunities for citizens and our corporate partners to contribute to building a healthy and caring community through Lacrosse.
It is the intention of the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association to provide Brampton residences a place to enjoy the game of Lacrosse. This is our promise and mandate to the City of Brampton.
Situations can come up and you are required to ask for your release from the BMLA. If we can not find a solution for you, you may request a release hearing (understanding that you must be a member to do so and thus be registered) to the President of the BMLA. You must be (a) registered with the BMLA and (b) fill out the OLA Release Request form and submit your request to optain a release hearing. There is a separate form for Field and Box on the OLA website. The attached links are below.
Lacrosse is Truly a Family Affair!
There are many great families involved in our game, and each of them devote so much time and effort to ensure their children get to and from games on time, respect their opponents and the game. Here is one such family that does just that and more.
Pictured above are the Sandhu Family. Dad, Kuldeep standing proudly with his Daughter, Pavleen and Son, Lahtaj.
Pavlene has been playing for two years and plays for the Blue Team in the Bantam Division. She says her favorite things about lacrosse is the physical nature of the game and making new friends. "Lots of good people to meet". Her highlight to date is going to last year's provincials as an add on player for the Midget Rep team. Her brother Lahtaj, in his third year, competes in the Novice Division for the Blue Team. He is the leading scorer on his team and the #2 leading scorer among all Novice Players.....a Star in the making!! Their Dad came to Canada when he was 11 years old and through the years fell in love with the Creator's Game. A love he now passes on to his children. And I am told there is another Sandhu ready to suit up next year, Pavlene and Lahtaj's little sister.
We are pleased to name the Sandhu Family as our "House League Family of the Week".
