ALA 2016 National Competitions Schedule Communication

When the 2016 National Competitions schedule was released earlier this year, concerns were raised, particularly by Lacrosse Victoria, in regards to programming outside of school holidays for Victoria and the length of the Seniors Championship due to splitting the Men’s and Women’s competition.

As a result of these concerns being noted, a meeting was called on Tuesday 22 December 2015 to discuss and finalise the 2016 National event programme. The meeting consisted of delegates from ALA, Lacrosse SA, Lacrosse WA, with Lacrosse Victoria an apology.

At this meeting, each event and concerns raised with each event were discussed individually. The result of this meeting was that it was agreed that the current schedule for the 2016 National Events will remain as previously published:

Under 18 Women & Men Thursday April 21 - Sunday April 24 Perth
Senior Women Saturday June 4 - Wednesday June 8 Melbourne
Senior Men Tuesday June 7 - Sunday June 12 Melbourne
Under 15 Girls & Boys Sunday October 2 - Saturday October 8 Adelaide
Indoor Men November / December (tba)

It was also agreed that as part of the National Participation Framework project, a 3 year National Competitions program (2017 - 2019) will be produced and distributed early in Quarter 4 of 2016.
