AGE DIVISION NAME CHANGES PER CLA

....a change to rename the box lacrosse age categories to 16U, 14U, etc., was passed at the CLA’s annual meeting in November. It is the CLA’s intent to have the new age categories implemented for the start of the 2020 lacrosse season.

Borrow this book from HDMLA to learn more about lacrosse!

Lacrosse has been a central element of Indigenous cultures for centuries, but once non-Indigenous players entered the sport, it became a site of appropriation – then reclamation – of Indigenous identities. The Creator's Game focuses on the history of lacrosse in Indigenous communities from the 1860s to the 1990s, exploring Indigenous–non-Indigenous relations and Indigenous identity formation. While the game was being appropriated in the process of constructing a new identity for the nation-state of Canada, it was also being used by Indigenous peoples to resist residential school experiences, initiate pan-Indigenous political mobilization, and articulate Indigenous sovereignty. This engaging and innovative book provides a unique view of Indigenous self-determination and nationhood in the face of settler-colonialism.
