What happened to the Jr.A lacrosse season? Yes I know what's going on. Is anyone else annoyed by the season being suspended in the middle of playoffs? Perhaps I'm just an unpatriotic bum who can't appreciate the great value of flag waving but the OLA Jr.A championship has been competed for since 1901. The Jr.A league, in its current format, goes back to 1951. How old is this U19 championship? Shouldn't they be scheduling around our schedule? It's not like our season is ten months long(and soccer manages to hold countless world championships and qualifiers with minimal disruption to the established leagues). May-August, that's it. That leaves the U19 crowd 8 months to choose from. And they choose to hold their tournament right in the middle of our season. What frustrates me is that the Jr.A Council has one job - to look out for the interests of the Jr.A league - yet they cave in with seemingly no fight at all.
I think it's admirable that these world championship types have such a passion for growing the game that they get whatever they want whenever they want. As I've hinted at in other posts, I am disappointed that the Jr.A Council does not seem to care about what's best for their league at all.
