It has been a very exciting and very successful 75th anniversary season so far for the BMLA. Our spring field lacrosse season was a success with one of our teams taking home the provincial “B” championship. The House League season was great, capping it off with a very competitive and exciting final tournament. Our new development program is on the way and many of our Rep teams are getting ready for the Provincial championship tournament.
Minto Cup Championship
This 2017 season is also very exciting for the BELC as well. This year the BELC in conjunction with the OLA and CLA will be hosting the Minto Cup Championship right here in Brampton. The Minto Cup tournament is the Jr. A’s Canadian Championship and will consist of 4 teams. British Columbia Champion, Alberta Champion, Ontario Champion and Ontario host team (Ontario finalist). They will play in a week long round robin tournament with the top two teams playing in a best of 5 championship series. This tournament will take place at the Memorial Arena, right here in Brampton from August 17th – 27th. These are the same great players that came out to help on our development nights throughout the house league season.
Game Day Help (Volunteers) Needed
Like any successful tournament, volunteers are needed. We are asking if any of our BMLA members are free and able to help they get in touch with Eva Durie, who is going to organize the tournament volunteers. Many volunteer positions need to be filled such as parking lot attendant, ticket sales, 50/50 ticket sales, and door security. If you are available we have a position for you.
Lets get out and show our Brampton Excelsior pride and help put on the best

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.
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.
