Hello Cowichan Valley,
The MIYFLA is trying to re-start local Field Lacrosse in the Cowichan Valley in the U11/U13 Boys divisions, and U12/U15 Girls divisions. We are looking for any adults or former local Valley field lacrosse players, male and female, to become certified level 1 referees. Field Lacrosse will be new to the majority of our players this season. New referees do not have to know the game inside and out to start. Having played the game, or even watched a game is a great start to becoming an official.
Boys Field Lacrosse games will be played locally in Duncan at the Cowichan Sportsplex Infield on weekends. New referee's will be trained to officiate U11 and U13 Boys games. The season will run from Sept 21st - Dec 1st 2019, with a 6 week break until Jan 11th. Provincials will be in February 2020.

Good Luck to all players!
Field lacrosse for boys was cancelled in 2018/2019 due to the lack of volunteers and decreased registration. However, there was Girls Field Lacrosse house league in the Fall 2018 thanks to Naomi Walser's efforts!
The MIYFLA has new executive being Naomi Walser as President; Corinne Findlater, as Treasurer; and Sheri Williams as Registrar. Thank you for volunteering with much appreciation to Bill Sanderson, Lucas Rankin and Kim Schiavon for their time and energy in these positions.
The MIYFLA is looking for more helpers to make Field Lacrosse possible for girls and boys in the Cowichan Valley. We are looking for a Secretary, Webmaster, Facebook Administrator, Equipment manager, Booster Club and Coaches. It doesn't require as much time as you may think. Please contact Naomi at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on how to help out.
Be on the look out for details of an AGM at the end of March 2019 to discuss moving forward with Field Lacrosse in 2019/2020!
