Comox Valley to host 2020 midget lacrosse provincials

The Comox Valley Lacrosse Association (CVLA) had a stellar 2019 year which finished with two teams competing in the provincial championships, and four athletes selected to play at the national level. Athletes brought home a team provincial gold title, three national silver medals and one national gold medal.

Moving forward into 2020, the CVLA is excited to start practising at the newly resurfaced Martin Park lacrosse box for outdoor practices.

The Comox Valley will be hosting the 2020 Midget Lacrosse Provincials next July at the Sports Centre. With the current strength of the 2019 bantam B players advancing to midget next year, the team has the potential for another strong showing at B.C.’s.

Hosting the provincial tournament will be a mini-boom to the Valley, with up to 24 teams and their families visiting over the course of a four-day period.

The CVLA hosts its AGM Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.
