Mississauga @ Green Gaels Tomorrow Night!

by (Login MattChamois)

Coming off their first loss of the season, the Green Gaels will welcome the Mississauga Tomahawks to the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex tomorrow evening, May 26th, for an 8PM start.

The Gaels previously beat the Tomahawks in Mississauga earlier this season, however, as stated above, are coming off their first loss of the season with a 10-1. The Tomahawks, 4-6, are coming off an 11 - 4 victory over the Orillia Kings on Tuesday evening.

This will be the first visit back to the Garnet B. Recreation Complex for both Brett and Taylor Meraw, Bowmanville residents who are both playing their first full season of Junior B Lacrosse with the Tomahawks. They will certainly be looking to put on a strong performance in efforts to put a "W" on the board in front of their family and friends.

For the Gaels, Dylan Goddard is a scoring machine of late, posting 23 points in his previous 3 games, while Brodie Tutton should be making his return to the lineup as well, after scoring 19 points in his previous 4 games.

Make sure you get out to this one. It will be the best lacrosse action in town tomorrow evening! Once you get there, don't forget to grab your 50/50 tickets!

Admission is $7 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, while children 12 and under get in free when accompanied by an adult.

Kids, don't forget to bring your helmets to go on the floor between periods!

The Medals Issue Revisted

by (Login 007lax007)

The decision to only give out gold medals this year elicited quite a bit of discussion, both here, on the OMFLL site, and at the fields themselves. I made a brief comment in the thread below, but basically reserved judgement until after everything played out.

After seeing the medals, I don't think that this was matter of the OLA/OMFLL being cheap. The Gold Medals (and ribbons) this year were FANTASTIC. They were really impressive and first rate, and they no doubt cost significantly more than last year's medals. My son has various medals from lacrosse and other sports, and commented that this one was the coolest medal that he had ever won. It would not surprise me in the least if these new medals cost as much as the old gold/silver/bronze medals combined. Given the choice between the two, I'd say that first rate gold medals are probably a better way to spend prize money than greater quantities of cheaper medals.

That said, I do feel that the finalists/silver medalists/losers (pick your term) should be recognized. I don't know that the OLA/OMFLL needs to go to the expense of silver and bronze medals, but even a finalist patch or something inexpensive like that would be a nice touch. One of the things I've liked about past championships (field or box) was bringing the two finalists together to receive their awards after the game. It made the win (or the loss) seem more important/special.

I can think of a perfect example from field last year. My son had an absolute war with a rival player in the championship game. I honestly thought that they were going to kill each other. Both teams were called together for the medal ceremony and, once everything was handed out, he immediately went with extended hand to congratulate his rival. It was a great moment between two boys who had played exceptionally hard and well. I think that, from a character perspective, there is great value in seeing your opponent, win or lose, acknowledged at the end of a provincial championship tournament.

This year, once the game was over, the "Silver Medalists" just kind of drifted off while the champs got the gold. I think that took away from the experience for both sides.

This is NOT about giving everyone a prize for just showing up or rewarding "losers". A team that advances all the way to the provincial championship game, regardless of level, has accomplished something. A formal acknowledgement of such, however minor, is worthwhile.

I get the need to cut costs and think that the nicer medals for the champs are the better choice, but there is an opportunity to improve things for box provincials with some sort of "finalist" acknowledgement and proper ceremony involving both teams.

Just my two cents worth!

Re: The Medals Issue Revisted

Wow, it's really too bad the OLA couldn't afford a wonderful little second rate piece of %$&* to make sure the losers hung around long enough to check out your little Johnny's bling. I guess the price of Gold was too high. Even with all the money they saved not having crossovers and qualifiers. We all feel really bad that Johnny didn't have a chance to "congratulate" his worthy opponent on his loss.

by (Login 007lax007)

Bitter much?

Sad that you don't see the role/value of minor sports in terms of building character, winning with class, and losing with honour.

I don't understand the need for your personal vitriol, but it only demonstrates how clueless you are. My son has twice been on the losing side of a provincial championship game, and my comments were based as much on those experiences as on those times that he's played for the winning side. It sure doesn't have anything to do with "showing off bling" and I'll just write off your ignorant sneer about the example of sportsmanship that I cited to you being a typical anonymous Internet troll.

I simply provided some thoughts/opinions about an issue that a lot of people were discussing this weekend. I'm sure that there are many who disagree, and I don't claim to speak with authority or expertise - just a perspective as a parent and (to a lesser degree) coach. There was no need for you to be such a douche about it.

Oh, do tell...

by (Login 007lax007)

If I don't get it, then why not enlighten me by actually making a point instead of hiding behind weak sarcasm? I disagree with those who feel that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, however when deployed so ineffectively, well, res ipsa loquitur.

Anyway, how about stating your own opinion instead of trying to mis-characterize mine? Are you capable of actually having a constructive discussion about this topic (any topic?), or is the thin gruel you've provided thus far as good as it gets?

Do you think that the finalists should receive medals or not? Why?

Do you believe that, after advancing all the way to a provincial championship game, the losing team should just kind of dissipate from the field/rink without any sort of acknowledgement of their accomplishment by the league? Why?

If you're not interested in discussing the matter, why reply at all?

Anyway, I'm on pins and needles (no, really!) waiting to learn what was so jaw-dropping about my first post. Was it that I (gasp) liked the medals and didn't jump on the "everything the OLA does is stupid and sucks entirely" bandwagon that is such a popular ride around here? Or maybe that I dared provide a personal example of a nice moment that couldn't really happen with the new approach? Perhaps it was my opinion that building character is as important as developing physical skills in minor sports. Do help me understand that which you feel I so obviously don't get.

I anxiously await your reply.

PS - It is inaccurate to suggest that I called you a bitter internet troll douche. I believe that I also accused you of being ignorant. If not, then I certainly meant to and apologize for the oversight. Consider the record corrected.

cost......

by John Harris (Login masterlady)

very well said but I think you are a little off the mark as to the cost of medals...I haven't seen these shiney new gold medals but can't imagine they would cost as much as gold/silver/bronze combined, there isn't any "gold" "silver" or "bronze" in them....medals, with ribbons, generally cost under five bucks, significantly less if bought in numbers which the OLA could do by combining the purchase of all the various medals they would hand out, the savings would be significant and the set up fees for the various changes in "artwork" on each medal would be nominal....if this is an attempt at cost savings and cost savings only by the OLA, I think they have failed miserably....they could have reduced their costs by purchasing more intelligently without alienating parents and players....beyond cost savings and hurt feelings this new system of giving out only gold medals has created something that could be more serious....if only Champions get recongnized where is the incentive to compete for those teams that won't be champions?....early in any season everyone has a chance but at some point it becomes clear some won't make it to the end, why would they bother to play? why would their parents continue to fund their activity in this sport as opposed to having them do something else?.....I don't condone that attitude but it will happen....this isn't about giving every one a prize, it's about recognising achievement and making it to the final four, in any sport that has good involvement shown by numbers, is an achievement....and then there is the sportsmanship and comradery that has already shown to be missing at the end of it all....in the end, what was really saved?

Re: cost......

by (Login 007lax007)

John - You are probably right about the costs. I've never been involved in the purchase of customized medals or even had to approve a budget for such, so I'll certainly defer to your experience in that regard.

FWIW, the new medals are significantly larger and heavier than the old ones, and full colour. The ribbons holding the medals are also larger, include custom wording (i.e. specifically saying field champions whereas the old ones just said lacrosse) and have the OLA logo. They really are nice medals (although evidently I was boasting or something for pointing that out in my original post) and they just seem like they would cost significantly more to produce than the old ones.

I certainly agree that making it to the championship game is a notable achievement and that the finalists should have something to recognize their accomplishment.

Oakville Buzz @ Green Gaels Tomorrow Night!

by (Login MattChamois)

Tomorrow night the Oakville Buzz (6-2) travel to the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex for their first meeting with the Green Gaels (9-0) since 2008.

The Buzz are currently tied atop the South-West division standings with the Halton Hills Bulldogs and are touted as one of the strongest defensive teams in the Eastern Conference. Their defense is backed Ian Duffy in goal, who leads the Eastern Conference with a 3.52 Goals Against Average. Scoring for the Buzz is spread out throughout their lineup, and provides a strong challenge to the Gaels defense.

Connor Latimer should be in the line-up tomorrow night for the Green Gaels. Last seasons 2010 Eastern Conference MVP and Leading Scorer, will be returning from Genesee C.C. NCAA Division III. He will add to a potent offense that represents the top two leading scorers in the OLA Jr. B Lacrosse League this season.

This game will be a true test for both teams. The patient Buzz team will show a more controlled pace to their game, while the Gaels will bring one of the toughest and aggressive defenses to the arena to meet the Buzz.

This one should be a good one. Two tough defenses. Two different but capable offenses. It will be a real lacrosse clinic from the pipes on out. Make sure you are there for this one.

Live Lax Blog will be covering the game tomorrow night live from Rickard. Make sure all you fans out of town follow along on Pointstreak and the Live Lax Blog.

Tickets for everyone attending the game are $7 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, while children 12 and under are admitted free under the supervision of an adult.

Don't forget kids, bring your helmet and stick so you can go on the floor between intermissions and have some fun!

Trainer Qualifications (Help!)

by (Login 007lax007)

Hello, everyone.

I've searched the OLA website in vain and can't determine what level of Red Cross certification is required for a bench trainer. Is the one-day Emergency course sufficient, or is the two-day Standard course required.

Please help! We need to get a certified trainer and do not want to pick the wrong course.

Thanks,

Re: Trainer Qualifications (Help!)

by PCO6 (Login PCO6)

I have searched for the list in the past too and agree it's hard to find. It does exist, I just can't put my hands on it right now. Your club or Zone Registrar should be able to advise you. The good news is that a lot of people qualify due to their professions or other interests. I have seen the following registered as trainers by the OLA and I'm sure there are more - doctors, nurses, paramedics, police officers, firemen, chiroprctors, dentists, military personnel, hockey (and other sports) trainers, ski patrollers, scout leaders, etc. Some of the above are obvious and some others qualify by virtue of specific courses they have taken. It's always good to canvas the team parents and register a few "spares".

Only Gold Medals at Field Provincials This Weekend

by statslax (Login statslax)

Taken from the OMFLL Website


(New this year, the OLA is providing medals for the winning team at each level only for all Provincial Championships. So there will only be a medal and trophy presentation for the winning teams.)

Tacky

by Sam Rook (Login HivedOff)

While not "every team" should get a medal, to not award even a smaller trophy for the second place finisher diminishes their great accomplishment. It's not easy to make the final and while only 1 team wins, the Runner-Up should also receive something to commemorate their great season too.

Since it is Youth Sports and not Professional sports, let's reward the team who doesn't win the final as well. It's the right thing to do.

Medals

by Laxx07 (Login Laxx07)

Agreed , why change now

"The custom of awarding the sequence of gold, silver, and bronze medals for the first three highest achievers dates from at least the 19th century, with the National Association of Amateur Athletes in the United States awarding such medals as early as 1884.[2]"

"This standard was adopted for Olympic competition at the 1904 Summer Olympics. At the 1896 event, silver was awarded to winners and bronze to runners-up, while at 1900 other prizes were given, not medals."

Why not have our identity instead of being followers ?

by drawman (Login drawman)

Cost ?
Labour ?
Medals not made from "green products", I could go on forever.

Why must we adapt another sports awards format?
You say it's been around forever in the Olympics, that does not warrant @#@# in my books and no reason it should be in lacrosse.
Winners get a medal and if others have a void to be fed why not a "crest". (cheaper and recognition is achieved)
I have a closet full of crests. Some are "A" championship tournaments were you won a crest not a trophy or medal.

I may be old fashioned but catering to "non winnners" (must be politically correct here)is not a step forward.
Just wait to these player's graduate out of midget with umpteen trophies on their shelves only to find out the
grim truth about their skills.
If they need a medal then maybe the parents can buy Johnny one instead of the OLA.

Again my 2 cents.

False Premise

by Tsitshoh (Login tsitshoh)

She:kon!

So the presumption is that since lacrosse uses athletic performance recognition methods that are used in other sports, the game somehow loses it's "identity" and reduces its participants and organizers to the role of mere "followers."  Given the nature and history of the game, your argument is patently absurd and a complete non-sequitur.

Then you cheapen the stakes by raising the spectre of "politically correct" as some sort of self-evident and necessary result of an poorly supported argument based on a false and unsubstantiated premise.

The irony here, as you explain what warrants "@#@# in your books" is that you explain that you have a closet full of momentos of events in which you are your team were recognized for your atheletic performance and furthermore, while medals shouldn't be awarded to "non winners" you think crests could be; or should be.  So your whole argument, being an absurd non-sequitur is also contradicts itself.

But I like this statement the best: "If they need a medal then maybe the parents can buy Johnny one instead of the OLA."

Who do you think actually pays for the medals in the first place?  The OLA??  LOFL!!!  You must be completely removed from the OMFLL that charges teams fees who download the cost to the players and families.  In effect, the parents of "little Johnny" are footing the bill for the OMFLL in the first place.  Right?  You get that right?  What did you think - the OMFLL league was paying for the medals and trophies out of their profits?  LOFL!

Seriously, charging the fees they do, the OMFLL is being chintzy and cheap.  And if it was matter of some sort of abstract austerity measure then I am sure they could have tacked on a 2 buck surcharge per player to continue the athletic performance recognition of handing out silver and bronze medals, which is a fairly common recognition method in a tournament format.

Your opinion does not change mine or make yours correct!
Keep using the thesaurus, big words from someone in the know of all that is lacrosse.
God forbid someone have a differt viewpoint than you. I must be absurd as you say.

If the medals were already accounted for in the budget, then why are only gold ones being handed out ?
Please enlighten us on this point. You get this question right?

It is possible the cost of registration was held steady because of the increased transportation costs incurred
by all. Hence having the medals cut back this year to ensure the steady profit for the omfll.

Keep up the condensending remarks I appreciate them.

No gold medal for you!

She:kon!

No gold medal for you for a second rate argument.  Maybe you'll get a crest.  LOFL!

The fact is, your opinion is invalidated because it is a non-sequitur, contradictory and patently absurd.  That makes you wrong until  you can prove otherwise.  It doesn't mean I am right of course, but it certainly means your 'opinion' just got buried.

If the OMFLL only budgeted for gold medals in an effort to make a "profit" then perhaps they should open their books to their shareholders - the people that pay for it all - the parents.  IF they realized - halfway through the season - they were going to run out of money, then perhaps they should have looked to the OLA for a loan to get them through until they can adjust their expenses.

But either way, it is cheap and chinzy especially for a provincial tournament.

Head in the sand

by Sam Rook (Login HivedOff)

Webby,

I have known you for many years and coached against you for most of that time. Your team and my team had many great battles and wonderful games to remember.

But in the end neither of us won many provincial titles. That doesn't mean our time and efforts were worthless. Our teams and players learned more about themselves as people than they did as Lacrosse players, many of them turned out pretty good as players so that's saying something.

I would however disagree with you whole-heartedly that awarding Gold, Silver and Bronze medals is "rewarding losers". I know when you coached you goal was the same as mine, to win the gold. I also know you would have never in your life refused to accept a Silver or Bronze medal at a provincial championship. You and your players would have earned that award by through your hardwork and dedication to the team. The colour may not be what you strived for but it doesn't diminish the effort put in to reach the top.

Perhaps a rethink of your vehement stance on Medals to the winners ONLY is in order?

Sam

a lot of what you say...

by drawman (Login drawman)

Sam,

Thanks for the tone of your message.

I still believe in my opinion (not arguement). Although it was disected line by line by Todd
of whom did not raise one valid reason other than cost as to why these runners up deserve a medal I still
cannot see why a return to the past is so evil.

I have been involved over 40 years in lax so I'm not a newbie as one poster suggested.
I also know that the game evolves with rules, offense/defence and in this case awards.

You and I have had great matches over the years, I do not need a medallion to remind me of them.
I do not bad mouth your stance on medals even if different than mine. It is an opinion.

According to Todd my arguement was "buried" I guess this must be because he said so.
I'm sorry it took so long to reply to your worthy posting but we had a death in the family.
Todd's posting can rot in hell as far as I'm concerned.

For fun how long do you think it will take him to reply to this ?
Will he have a valid arguement as to why runners up deserve medals?
I think he will just attack this opinion line by line.

Above bashing opinions with drivel,

Drawman

She:kon Drawman,

Skennenko:wa and my condolences to your family for your loss.

Your opinion is "buried" because it was based upon a false premise as the title of my original reply clearly indicates.  It isn't because I "said so" it is because your reasons are unsubstantiated, contradictory and devolve into a nonsensical and absurd non-sequitur.  If that offends you then perhaps you ought to provide a counterpoint to my rebuttal or revise your "opinion."

The closet

by Abused Fan (Login krashr)

If you have a closet full of medals, crests and trophies, they must have meant something to you then and still do now seeing how you have kept them and good for you that you did. My son has a a shelf full of finalist trophies and medals that he wanted no part of the day of the event, but still spreads them out now and again to do an inventory. My initial thought was 'who needs a second place award', but for the cost involved, maybe we do?

good point krashr

by drawman (Login drawman)

I can see both points of view, but I am set in my opinion.
I have crests etc from the past. Most are gold winners or participant offerings.
You are right in the point that I still hold on to them. For the most point I do not know why ?
Thanks for your views, I see the youth awards I won have been kept, but the later awards seem less desirable.
Go figure..

Re: about time...

by (Login 007lax007)

Every team doesn't win a medal. The gold, silver, and bronze medalists do. Seems to work fine for the Olympics and World Championships.

This is pretty standard in most athletic tournaments and not comparable to the "everybody gets a trophy" mentality that you are talking about.

Never forget the 80's

by steveooo (Login steveooo)

I don't see what the problem with the top 3 getting something.If the kids enjoy the medals ,it's good for the game.If its good for the game the game will grow.If the game grows it will never die again.A powerfull lesson was learned in the 80's .The powers that be should never forget this ,especially when it comes down to a few lousey bucks that is just downloaded to the parents anyways.

Mimico Mountaineers @ Green Gaels Tonight!

by (Login MattChamois)

Last Friday evening the Gaels traveled to Mimico Arena for one of the toughest tests for both teams in this young season. Tonight, Mimico looks to redeem themselves when they travel to the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex in Bowmanville where they take on the Gaels for an 8PM start.

The Green Gaels have put up wins against the Gloucester Griffins and Mississauga Tomahawks since their Friday night victory over Mimico, while the Mountaineers have had time to relax and go over game film, they have not played since Friday.

Every time these two teams meet, both teams give 110%. In what may not be as published a rivalry as Halton Hills vs. Mimico or Green Gaels vs. Halton Hills, these two teams genuinely do not like playing each other and always expect hard word and effort out of each other, on top of boat loads of talent.

Make sure you get out to Rickard tonight and join what is expected to be a strong crowd, and take in some great Junior Lacrosse action tonight. Don't forget, tonight is Brendan Muise's first time facing the Mountaineers at home in the Green Gaels barn since his trade from Mimico.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, while children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult. Make sure your kids bring along their helmets and sticks to keep them occupied in between periods on the floor.

Gloucester Griffins @ Green Gaels on Mothers Day

by (Login MattChamois)

The Green Gaels will try to remain perfect at 7 - 0 tomorrow when the Gloucester Griffins (2-1) step into the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex in Bowmanville on May 8th at 2PM.

Gloucester is making a weekend out of it as they are in Halton Hills tonight. The Griffins are currently tied for first in the Far-East division.

This is one of only two opportunities to see a Far-East team at Rickard during the regular season. When the Gaels went out east earlier in the season, they were challenged in both games, and it will be no different in this one.

Tickets for the game are $7 for adults, $4 for students, while children under 12 are admitted free under the supervision of an adult. As always, kids are encouraged to bring their sticks and helmets to throw a ball around on the floor in between periods.

Don't miss your opportunity to bring your family out to the game. The 2PM start gives you a great opportunity to get your family out to the game at an affordable price and you'll be home in plenty of time for your Mother's Day dinner.

Also to clarify-

While Offense / Defence is only allowed as a strategy at the Midget level and above . . . . . In Bantam and below you are still allowed to use a set PP and PK and you can have a set draw line. For example - put 5 guys out off a draw - win the draw and then make a change.

Hope that helps.

Re: Question For Referees - Offense Defense

by ptbo (Login laxpro)

No, there is no limit on how many can change at once in bantam.

They key thing is when they change.

Players have to play both ends of the floor.

For example, you have a line of 5 out there - they go up and play offence - then lose the ball - all five of them run back and play D - after regaining possession - 4 guys book it to the bench for the change, 1 guy waits with the ball - passes it off then complete the change - This is fine.


What would NOT be fine is if you have a line of 5 on the floor - they go up and play offence then the second you lose the ball you have all 5 guys book it to the bench and send 5 guys out the back door to play defence.

`What would NOT be fine is if you have a line of 5 on the floor - they go up and play offence then the second you lose the ball you have all 5 guys book it to the bench and send 5 guys out the back door to play defence. `

My understanding is that you can make a line change on defence.  So 5 players could run up the floor, play offence, then run to the bench to make a change on the defensive transition.  I believe I have seen a few teams do this, at least last year.

Could a referee clarify please?

I believe the difference here is not allowing a line to come on the floor for offence and then leave the floor on defensive transition.  However, I know a few clever coaches who can keep the lines moving and change some of the line on offensive transition and some others on the defensive transition.  Technically legal, but it must give the refs a headache!

Re: You can change on Defence...

by ptbo (Login laxpro)

LOL I am a referee - maybe my example was not clear . . . Ill try again.

What I was trying to say in my example is if a coach has dedicated defence players coming out the back door on a loss of possession.

So Im my example I said " What would NOT be fine is if you have a line of 5 on the floor - they go up and play offence then the second you lose the ball you have all 5 guys book it to the bench and send 5 guys out the back door to play defence."

And Tsitshoh said "My understanding is that you can make a line change on defence. So 5 players could run up the floor, play offence, then run to the bench to make a change on the defensive transition. I believe I have seen a few teams do this, at least last year."


So im my example. Team A has the ball on offense- they lose the ball - All 5 guys run to the bench - the bench sends 5 guys out the back door to play D . . . . This is fine

Where it becomes illegal is when team A regains possession of the ball - if all 5 guys make a change this is not allowed because those 5 guys have ONLY played defence - they have not played at the offensive end of the floor.

The main thing to keep in mind is if it happens once or twice - it is most likley not a big deal. The whole point behind the rule is to catch the teams that are using dedicated offensive and defensive players who are only playing 1 end of the floor.

Like Tsitshoh said - good coaches know how to manipulate the system to get the guys they want on the floor.

Also - in say a Bantam A game there is enough going on to keep an eye on - it can be hard to babysit changes.



Does that help?

good point. In trying to simplify my example, I forgot to mention it does not have to be a whole line. I used a whole line as I thought that was an easier example.

In a game you are more likely to see a team try and use 1 or 2 players playing one end of the floor.

However, I disagree somewhat with you. Personally, when I am reffing the times when a team makes a change of 4 or 5 guys - that is easy you can clearly see who is going on/off and keep track of it. I find it harder when it is just 1 guy changing

u b the ref

by al rules (Login qwikstic)

I see that the CLA rule book is now posted on the OLA site and hopefully will lend a hand in educating all us parent "refs".

A question for any of the real stripes and/or experts.

A minor game.

Team H has possession of the ball, ref calls coincidental* penalties. Team M for high sticking, Team H for slashing. (Team H player took a high stick and slashed Team M player).

Who gets awarded the ball ?

*what exactly is a coincidental penalty ? Is this a judgement call by the ref. For example in this instant if it was a high stick then an immediated retaliatory slash. Is that coincidental penalties ?

Cheers,

Coincidental penalties

by Sam Rook (Login HivedOff)

are penalties of "equal duration that occurred at the same time to opposing players". Thus in your example the two penalties would be considered coincidental penalties.
Had the one penalty been a 5 minute major then these penalties would not be coincidental (not of equal duration)

Re: Coincidental penalties

Thanks Sam. Then I assume according to rule 85(c)

(c) Should infractions occur that require coincident minor or coincident major penalties, play shall be stopped immediately and the penalties assessed to the offending players/goalkeeper. Play shall restart with the team that was in possession of the ball at the time of the infractions, retaining possession.

Team H would retain possession of the ball in my example ?

During play vs after the play

by Sam Rook (Login HivedOff)

If both penalties occur during the play (ie before the whistle) then possession remains with the team who had ball last.

If the second penalty occurs AFTER play has stopped (ie after the whistle) then they use order of occurence. Because the second penalty is considered to have happened in a seperate instance, the ball would actually go to the team who had the first penalty.

Unfortunately it is a confusing rule that is mis-applied in many cases by refs at all levels which then confuses everyone else.

Ripped Off

by Livin (Login livin4lax)

I heard that this program charged $1200 for one weekend Tournament in January. The kids were promised helmets and gloves, which they never got, they also never got refunded. Heard there were a lot of issues and concerns from the parents. Im suprised the Pro guys would put there name on something shady like this, id hate to see more people get ripped off.

Good experience

by Jim (Login 007lax007)

My son attended Evolve's one-day March Break camp/clinic and had a great time. Everything was delivered as promised and I think that it benefited him as a lacrosse player. He is NOT on the tournament team, so I can't speak to the experience you've commented on, but I'm always suspicious of anonymous people on the Internet saying that they "heard" something negative about a company/team/organization.

Please don't take that as a personal attack or suggestion that you have some hidden agenda. I just think that you should be careful with comments like that, as they tend to lack context and/or all of the information. Grant/Kelusky/Watson (the GM's and Director of LAX Operations respectively) are all well-known and respected in the lacrosse community and accusing them of doing something "shady" based on second or third hand gossip really doesn't help anybody.

Just my two cents!

INFO...

Evolve was asked in December to organize a Canadian Team for the I-Cup in Florida which ran along side the Brogden in January. We are not immune to critisizm. In fact, its important for us to become better. In a very short turn around we organized a team to go to the I-CUP in Florida. The team was coached by very strong coaches and played some very good lacrosse.

Was it a perfect travel event organized by Evolve....No.....did it have some hic ups...yes.....did we have very good intentions.....yes.....

We have a vision to build a strong foundation for lacrosse players through development camps and elite tournament play in addition to members home club play.

We are in our first year of operations... We will continue to build on successes.... and learn from the challenges.

We want to change the culture...and have the focus, coaching, and model to do it.

In respect to the posted message..the reality is that this it is not truthful. Players paid money to cover costs of accomodations, travel at the event, meals and uniform (which included gloves)...what was paid to evolve covered these expenses...Players paid $500.00 OR $600.00 to evolve depending if they stayed with team or parents. There was no revenue generated by Evolve. We fielded a team to get to this event as a result of the invitation....and payment covered costs...thats it.

Anyone that would like details feel free to email us.

It was our first event....not a home run on our end....but also far from the posted message...

The truth of the matter is this...We believe in our model. We are bringing top notch coaching and development while attempting to not interfere with home clubs as best we can. Each practice, tournament, and year of operation we will get better and look forward to many years of succesful relationships with families and club organizations.

Respectfully,

Evolve Elite Lacrosse

Toronto Stars First Weekend of Peewee Field lacrosse

by Gary (Login kemplen)

On Saturday the Toronto Stars went to play there first ever field game and experienced the rain , cold and the reality of playing lacrosse in April. Once they over game the shock of the weather they played very well for their first game and lost to Newmarket 8 - 5. I am sure that Newmarket will not look forward to playing the Stars again the next time.

After the boys realized they wouldn't freeze to death, in their second game of the day they played an amazing field game and beat Peterborough 1 7 - 5 even with a short 8 players. I am sure that the Peterborough organization did not expect the Toronto Stars to play them that well.

Overall it was an amazing day, the players just loved it and they played like they has played field for years, the coaches were very impressed.

The coaches of the team made the following comments about their players.

The Toronto Stars Goalie Owen was a monster in net. Making about 20 - 25 saves in the two games.

Long poles - all you guys stepped up today and made some big stops. You were there to pick up important loose balls, and there was lots of impressive stick checking and footwork. Keep doing what your doing - Matt B. Noah, Clint, Quinten C, Hayden

Midfield - played an excellent two way game, making big plays in all areas of the field, from O to D to Transitioning (where you looked like seasoned vets on a lot of your fast breaks. We hit hard and were first to a lot of the loose balls. On offence we set - up a nice looking offence and executed - Cameron, Adam, Dalton, Matt D, Quinten H, Aidan, Ian, Jacob, Mikey great work today!

Attack - was impressive today! We put the ball in the net. You fed the ball when middies were open and we executed a lot of nice plays. - Josh, Chris, Brandon you did an excellent job!

What a great start of the season , looking forward to next week , see you all on the field.

OLA player certificates, "cards"

by qwikstic (Login qwikstic)

I know there is a move on with some clubs to register players electronically, and not sure if there are still actual paper OLA player certificates behind that process (I'm assuming so), but why does the OLA not combined the two, essentially identical, player certificate forms for minor Box and Field. I'm only guessing that it would cut down on some paperwork, not to mention reduce a bunch of paper, while likely saving money.

Censorship

by Wayne Paddick (Login kwlaxref)

Censoring a forum such as this is never an easy decision for a moderator. Watching two adults verbally duke it out is often humourous and necessary for this forum to continue to generate interest within the OLA world. Folks, we ask that when children are involved, we please use our heads, even if we feel our comments are justified. As Glen and Ron used to say, and now Todd, BE NICE!!!

Todd has worked hard to keep this site afloat and if everyone plays by the rules and abides by the guidlines of fair play, then I can assure you that once Oshawa Minor Lacrosse has cleaned up at the provies this year (lol), Todd will make some necessary improvements to this site come the fall. If we keep poking the bear with a stick, (grrr,) then the likelihood of the site being shut down is a possibility.

Let's all get along in the sand box please!!!

Pointless diatribes!

Thanks for posting your ranting complaint but perhaps we could get some information to give more colour to the story other than "9 kids were denied at registration by the evil-doers of Gloucester".

For all we know, the 9 kids were from outside of Gloucester's boundaries and this GLA was perfectly justified in denying their registration without releases.

More details please.

She:kon!

I have received some further information about this particular scenario and it appears that there are different outcomes as posted.  In a disucssion with a few parties, I have made some edits based on fair play and reputation.  Sure, we might not know who is involved, but some in the GLA do and it is in the best interests to edit and lock.

I don't like censoring posts since even unflattering opinion could be legitimate material for discussion.  However, since young children are involved, I would prefer to err on the side of caution.

I hope this is acceptable to everyone.
