TAKE YOUR GAME TO THE NEXT STEP!

TRY OUT FOR A BAYHAWKS REP TEAM!

The QMLA is excited to offer a more challenging program for players who want to develop their game and take it to the next level.  Join a Bayhawks rep team and play games against other teams in Eastern Ontario, tournaments, and provincial championships.

There is a non-refundable fee of $35 to try out, which is payable upon registration.  Players should register using the appropriate “rep” product for their age group (for example, “U9 Rep”).  Players who are not selected to the rep program will have their registration moved to house league to participate in the Quinte Lacrosse League (depending on age) and continue to have fun and develop their skills.

See our Competitive Program page for more details.

The following is the tryout schedule.  Players must attend at least one try out.

All tryouts will take place at the Loyalist Sports Dome.

QUINTE LAX DAY A SUCCESS!


June 17th was a great day for lacrosse in Quinte!

Quinte Lax Day welcomed teams from Kingston and Tyendinaga to compete in several local league games throughout the day.  In total, 20 teams participated, aging from 5 to 14 years old, with a total of 15 games throughout the day on Wally Dever and Mackay arenas at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.

For the Quinte teams, it was a great way to wrap up their 2023 recreational league season.  With one U7 team, 3 teams at U9, 2 teams each at U11, U13 and U15, it is clear that lacrosse is alive and well, and growing, in the Bay of Quinte region.  Even our smallest players, just 3 and 4 years old, had a fun wrap up to their season!

Quinte Minor Lacrosse would like to thank all participants and families for their support and commitment to the 2023 season.  A special thank you to the volunteers on the QMLA Board and those who helped this day be a success, to the coaches who gave their time to the players so they could enjoy the sport, and to our growing roster of officials for their dedication to growing the sport – without them the games couldn’t be played.

 

 

 

 

 

U15 & U17 Bayhawks Play Host to Nepean Knights


On May 14th, 2023, the U15 and U17 Quinte Bayhawks played host to the Nepean Knights at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.  A total of 3 games showed the spectators, including some of our youngest Bayhawks, the bright future of lacrosse in Quinte.

Game 1 featured our Baldwin Electric U15 Bayhawks taking on the Nepean Knights #2 team.  Many players were experiencing their first taste of the high-intensity action that is rep lacrosse.  While the home team showed many promising signs, the experience of the Nepean team showed in a 13-0 Knights win.  

Game 2 brought a highly competitive matchup between the Schoonhoven Landscaping U17 Bayhawks and the U17 Nepean Knights #2 team.  Both teams started out strong looking for a win in their first game of the season.  The home team was determined in this one, and their effort was rewarded with an 8-2 victory.  Leading the way for the Bayhawks were Tehentsyahkhwa Brant and Patrick Fee, each notching 4 goals and 1 assist.  Tanner Zadworny was strong in net for the win.

In game 3, the Baldwin Electric U15 Bayhawks returned to play the Nepean Knights #3 team.  Despite playing in their second game of the day, the team battled hard for the home crowd.  The improvement over the first game showed, but the Bayhawks ultimately fell short in an 8-1 loss.  Scoring the lone goal for the Bayhawks was Wade Doreen.

Next action for the U15 and U17 Bayhawks is May 27th when they host the Akwesasne Storm at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.  The U9 Bayhawks will play in front of the home crowd against the Gloucester Griffins on June 18th.

 

 

 

U17 Bayhawks Finish 2022 Season and Look Ahead to 2023.


On August 5th and 6th, our U17 Bayhawks competitive team finished off their season at the Ontario Lacrosse Festival – the provincial championship tournament.

Four games were played over the course of two days against teams from West Grey, Toronto, Six Nations and Pelham, and while the Bayhawks came up short in all games, the experience was worth it.  Despite competing in the U17 age group (2006/2007 birth years), the team was comprised of players born in 2007, 2008 and 2009.  Technically, half of the team would normally be playing in the U15 division. It was an uphill battle from the start for each game, and the Bayhawks showed up each and every game and battled from the first whistle to the final buzzer. It was the first time playing competitive lacrosse for six players, and most only started playing lacrosse in the last few years.  The lessons learned this season will carry forward into 2023 as the whole team will be back and ready to compete in a much more even playing field.

The U17 Bayhawks are made up of players from all over Quinte region – Belleville, Brighton, Foxboro, Tyendinaga, Trenton, Prince Edward County and Plainfield. 

Quinte Minor Lacrosse Association would like to extend a huge thank you to all players and parents for their commitment to the team and to growing the sport of lacrosse in the Quinte Region.

 

Bayhawks Compete in Toronto Beaches Hogtown Paperweight Tournament


On July 9th, 2022, our 5 and 6 year-old players on the Quinte Bayhawks paperweight all-stars participated in the Hogtown Paperweight Tournament hosted by the Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club.  The event was held at the Kew Beach outdoor box, and it was a beautiful day for lacrosse by the beach!

Three games were played over the the course of the morning and early afternoon and the team came away with two losses and a tie against some very worthy opponents from established lacrosse communities in Ontario.  Sandwiched between two losses against Burlington Chiefs and Milton Mavericks, the Bayhawks battled hard in the bright sun and heat to tie the Newmarket Redbirds, although it was evident all players came away winners judging by the smiles on their faces and the fun they were having!  Needless to say, it was a quiet ride home for most parents, as the big day took its toll on the players and it was time for a much needed rest.

Quinte Minor Lacrosse Association would like to extend a huge thank you to our jersey sponsors New Hope Surrogacy and Egg Donation, as well as other generous donations from Cheryl Carrier, REALTORĀ®, RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. Brokerage, Dave’s Bike Dump and The Water Guys.  We would especially like to thank the parents for their commitment to making this a great experience for our youngest Bayhawks!
