With all due respect Gary, this needs further clarification. The Green Gaels are Whitby BASED... "Whitby affiliated" implies an affiliation agreement when in fact its an automatic affiliation. There are two questions... "would the Whitby based Green Gaels return to play in Oshawa?" and "would they apply to play A?"
The hurdle for Jr A in Oshawa would be the Warriors and the Jr A Council allowing it... in the hay days of the 70's Whitby and Oshawa had a mutual agreement on player rights. Keeping in mind the Warriors success lately, they likely wouldn't allow it easily. Oshawa also lacks a decent facility for Jr lacrosse. Therefore, you won't likely see a new Jr A team in the area.
The new OMLA will quickly become a minor rep juggernaut due to the people involved, their principles, and the amount of local kids. How this all pans out as far as affiliations and where the Green Gaels play is anyones guess. And again, Oshawa lacks a decent facility for Jr lacrosse. We'll see...
