2021 U18 Event Postponed

U18 Event

ALA would like to take this opportunity to inform the Australian lacrosse community that the 2021 U18 Boy’s and Girl’s National Championship, which was planned to be held over Easter in 2021, has been postponed. The ALA is currently working with our Member Associations to schedule the U18 event to be held during the July school holidays in 2021.

This decision, to postpone the U18 Event and proposal of a July time slot, arose after ALA was made aware that only two Member Associations would be in a position to send teams to the planned April (Easter) event.

While we acknowledge this announcement will come as a surprise and is a shift away from our traditional timeslot for this event, this course of action will help ensure that players will be able to participate in the event and at a time when all participating states, and potentially New Zealand, can compete. Further details regarding the event will be confirmed and published in early February 2021.

We appreciate the lacrosse community’s understanding and support and we would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Member Associations' support, communication, engagement and willingness to work through this matter.
