Ontario Masters Lacrosse Rule Changes
Effective tonight we are implementing an amendment to the rule book as passed by the Ontario Masters Lacrosse Council.

A message from the Commissioner/Council:

In order to curb a lot of the "calling the game from the floor" and whining that seems to be increasing, there will be more enforcement of the unsportsmanlike penalty. The Council has instructed Brian (RIC), starting in Fergus and continuing the rest of the season, to have the game officials stop play when they hear any such comments made. The same way we do with a zone defense. First call is a warning and involves a possession change if the offending team has possession of the ball. ANY subsequent complaints from that team becomes an unsportsmanlike penalty. Does not matter if it is the same player. The team, as with a zone defense takes the penalty.


Space Open For More Runners
The 2013 season is now underway. We have room for additional runners, so if you're interested in joining the fun drop me a line.

TMLL Under New Management
Thanks to John, Elsie and the extended family for running the league over the past three years. They did a superb job in setting the tone ensuring that everyone had a fun and safe time out there. Sticks held high in salute !

Now to the future. Three things:
1. No changes expected for the Summer 2013 season. We'll continue to run out of the Scarborough Soccer Centre on Thursday nights with 8:00 and 9:00 face off times.
2. We're investigating the level of interest with respect to playing year round on Thursday nights. If you're interested in adding a week night game of lax to your itinerary in the Fall and/or Winter, drop me a line.
3. Lastly, we're also gauging interest in creating a second TMLL tournament team. If you're interested (3-5 weekends during the summer), drop me a line.

Our season begins Thursday, May 3rd at 8pm and 9pm and will run for 15 weeks of the best Masters Lacrosse in Toronto! We are now officially part of Ontario Masters Lacrosse (OntarioMastersLacrosse.com) but will still continue using two OLA carded referees for every game this season.

Spaces will be limited to 4 teams and approximately 13 players per bench to allow you more time on the floor.

Captain Adam McKay, will defend his team’s Championship Title against Captains Chris Tighe, Steve Hogan, and Edgar Grzinic who will once again lead their teams to the playoffs in August and determine the 2012 Champion Team.
