Just a note on the evolution of box lacrosse at the major level in Ontario.

The Ontario Major Lacrosse Series teams are about to begin their season. The OLA has been operational for well over 100 years.

At present, there are Major Series teams in Peterborough, Barrie, Brampton, Kitchener, Whitby, and on the 6 Nation Reserve near Brampton and at Kaknewake near Cornwall.

Four of these teams play in arenas which hold between 4 and 5,000 fans.

This game is our game. Its Canadian through and through. It was a gift of our native people to us, and Dr. Beers of Montreal codified it with rules, and it evolved in Canada, from field lacrosse to Box lacrosse.

During the summer, in Ontario..........there are few sports that can boast of having about 50,000 kids playing it........and having such a league which has evolved to such a high level of competition.

Lacrosse is a hard, tough,fast, Canadian game. Its our game and a great one.

Indeed it is. However, I was on the Lacrosse team in high school and went to to Montana to play them and they kicked our asses. Seems to be a trend nowdays, other countries taking our game and using it to wipe our own asses with it, it's tough I know.

Hockey? USA won the under 17 world cup, they soon or already do have more players than Canada can generate in a hundred years in hockey and they might take over hockey as a dominating sport (imagine 80% Americans, 60% European, the rest Canada in the years to come)

Curling? Didn't we lose the Olympics and world championships?

Actually in Box Lacrosse Canada is so far ahead of everyone else it's not funny. For the Box Lacrosse World Championships (which I think are in Halifax next summer, Field Lacrosse had its World Championships in London this summer I went to a lot of games) Canada essentially sends two teams (Canada and Iroquois) and those two teams continually finish 1-2.
