To our Membership,
On behalf of everyone in the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association, I would like to first hope and wish you and your family is safe and practicing social distancing during this pandemic.
We are receiving many inquiries as to the upcoming season for both field and box and when a decision will be confirmed. The answer is we are taking our direction from The City of Brampton and our governing body, the Ontario Lacrosse Association, They are funneling down directives from both the Federal and Provincial governments and updating us the club as things evolve.
We will be updating our website and social media platforms as updates occur and then will take the necessary steps as things change. Our hope is that we will be able to get on the field and box and play this great sport but only once we are sure everyone will be safe to do so. In the meantime we ask that you follow the direction of our elected governments and follow safe practices, proper social distancing and stay home and help us overcome this together.
If you or your child is interested in our 21 day challenge we encourage you to share video with us on Instagram or twitter to add some fun in this time of isolation and try and find a silver lining in this time of overcoming this crisis.
We can only hope we will back to a normal way of life in the coming weeks and we will have learned to appreciate many things we may have taken for granted and enjoy a more fulfilling life as we move forward into the future.
Stay safe and hoping to see everyone soon!
We will continue to monitor the current situation alongside the City of Brampton and/or the OLA and will continue to make changes on our site as necessary. Please review our social media platforms and our website for all updates.

Lacrosse in Brampton has had a rich and enduring history. Building on Canada’s aboriginal roots, lacrosse emerged in Brampton in the 1870s and has become an important ingredient of Brampton’s distinctive character. The Brampton Excelsior Lacrosse Club was officially formed in 1871. In 2020, The Excelsiors will be celebrating their 150th anniversary, making it the oldest continuously run sports organization in North America.
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.
