2016 National Competitions Schedule
Australian Lacrosse Association
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
||Saturday June 4 - Wednesday June 8
||Tuesday June 7 - Sunday June 12
|Under 15 Girls & Boys
||Sunday October 2 - Saturday October 8
||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.
