Saanich Lacrosse Executive Announcement
The Saanich Lacrosse Association has reviewed the BC Lacrosse Association’s Return to Play plan. The Return to Play plan complies with the ViaSport guidelines and includes measures to ensure compliance with the Provincially mandated social distancing. The plan restricts play in the following ways:
- No body contact
- No stick to stick contact
- No shooting on goalies
- No scrimmages or games
- A specified numbers of players and coaches on the floor at one time

The health and safety of our players, parents, coaches and volunteers is very important.
The Saanich Lacrosse Association has evaluated the Return to Play plan requirements and the Executive has made the difficult decision to not hold any lacrosse activities in the 2020 season. We are hopeful that the 2021 season allows us to resume lacrosse play as we have known it in the past.
Saanich Parks has opened the boxes for community use. Please go out and enjoy the boxes but remember to adhere to all Covid-19 measures put in place by the province and municipality. Failure to do so may result in the boxes being closed and would reflect poorly on the lacrosse community.
