Comox Valley Lacrosse Association to host U16 tournament
The relaxing of COVID-19 rules coming in July has allowed the Comox Valley Lacrosse Association to plan for a season ending tournament for its U16 team. This means the Comox Valley Lacrosse Association can not only hold that season-ending tournament, but there is also potential to have a few fans in the stands. Only time will tell what the new COVID-19 protocols might allow.
“This is just simply amazing,” says president Geoff Garbutt. “ This means everything to our U16 players and their families. For most, in the U16 age group, it’s their last opportunity to play minor lacrosse and the last opportunity for parents and family to watch them play.”
Having a local tournament will also allow the Comox Valley Lacrosse Association to take the opportunity to recognize the U16 and bantam teams that won championships during the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
The CVLA will be fundraising through sales of advertising in the tournament brochure. The tournament will be held July 16-18, 2021 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.
