OLA Announces The Cancellation of Traditional Box Lacrosse Season

It is with heavy hearts that we regret to inform you that as of June 11th, 2020 the OLA (Ontario Lacrosse Association) has made the difficult decision to cancel all Box Lacrosse for the 2020 Season.

Read the full statement issued by the OLA:


Emails have been sent out to registered members with refund options. 

Despite the cancellation of box lacrosse, QMLA is currently looking at how we can provide a field lacrosse program to allow players a chance to develop their skills and learn a new aspect of the sport.

Stay tuned, more information to come….



COVID-19 Update: Cancellation of House League Play.

Quinte Bayhawks Novice battles Kingstron Krossfire Novice during the 2019 house league season.

Unfortunately, due to the extension of health restrictions and facility closures, our board of directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our house league program for 2020.  An update on our competitive program should be released by mid-June.  The health and well-being of our community must be a priority, and we wish all of our members and families the best of health during this difficult time.

For more details regarding member options at this point, please see our official release:
QMLA COVID-19 Update – Cancellation of House League Play

COVID-19 Update

Bayhawks Lacrosse Families,

With recent news of the extended and indefinite closures of municipal facilities due to the COVID-19 virus, and with the Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) ceasing all lacrosse activities until May 15th at the earliest (click here for more details), we would like to keep you updated on where things stand with respect to the 2020 lacrosse season.  

At this time, it is clear the season will not begin as expected in mid-April and we cannot move forward with any league planning or scheduling until we have facilities available to play.  We remain hopeful of a lacrosse season in some shape or form in 2020.  During the upcoming weeks, with direction from the OLA, we will attempt to re-evaluate what type of programming, at both recreational and competitive levels, we could provide should that opportunity be available to us.  We will continue to communicate any updates to our registered members through email, as well as on our website and social media.  

We appreciate your patience and wish all of you the best of health.  

Thank you,

Joe Fee

President, QMLA
