THANK-YOU LYNDSAY!

The Brampton Excelsiors Lacrosse club held their annual awards banquet today at Spot One Restaurant.  It was a time to get together reflect on the previous season and catch up with friends.  The Women’s Field club had an extra reason to celebrate as they had the opportunity to thank one of their own for years of dedication to the BELC.  Lyndsay Brooks was  honoured for her accomplishments and given a special farewell:

 

“When Lyndsay first joined the Brampton coaching program we all had one plan in mind – to rebuild. This was no easy task as numbers were low, and unfortunately, morale seemed to be even lower. Brampton kids expected to lose, and played lacrosse for the “social element”. While we all agree that having an incredible experience and enjoying your time on the field is important – it was also important to all of us to restore pride in the Excelsior name. We wanted to become a team that other towns feared seeing on their schedule, and to become successful, this had to start from the ground up. Lyndsay took on this task with open arms, working with a very green U15 team who eventually became a top A program, and now compete in the top division consistently….What you may not know, is that Lyndsay lives in Owen Sound, and works full-time while also balancing a reffing career, and when she has time left over…. some semblance of a social life!

Hours upon hours were spent driving in her honda to ensure the girls had an amazing experience, with an even more amazing role model. This fueled the girls to give their all, and is something that Brooks instilled in them. Because of her dedication and leadership, these student-athletes are not only better lacrosse players, but better people. They believe in themselves, and in my experience, a confident girl who knows how to work hard and overcome obstacles is pretty tough to stop…and that’s what our excelsior girls have become.

I am honored to have played with, and worked with brooks as a part of the excelsior family, and even more honored to be able to call her my best friend.

Thank you for all you have given to all of us Brooks – it won’t be the same without you, but it’s clear that you have already made an impact at your high school in a few short weeks,  and we are so excited to see where your new journey takes you.”  Kallie Briscoe

    OWFL September Update!

Greetings OWFL Members

By all key measuring statistics OWFL in 2016 enjoyed a very successful year.

  • Players – The number of girls playing women’s field lacrosse in Ontario increased by 12% – 2,341 girls registered to play in 2016 up from 2,083 in 2015
  • Teams – The number of rep teams participating in OWFL league play increased by 10% – there were 78 rep teams representing 15 clubs up from 71 teams in 2015
  • Games – The number of OWFL league games played increased by 26% – 719 games were played in 2016 up from 572 in 2015
  • Finances – The OWFL Financial position in 2016 was significantly strengthened – we are projecting a strong 2016 operating surplus

Scheduling Initiatives in OWFL league play implemented in 2016 were well received by the clubs.Changes in 2016 included:

  • New “Early Bird” tourneys held in Halton Hills and Orillia.  These kick-off exhibition games attracted 60 teams
  • 25% more regular season games played for all divisions (excluding Senior)
  • The adoption of the MyLaxRanking system to determine standings and rankings (replacement of the balanced schedule model)
  • The move to support and encourage the playing of midweek games to reduce the weekend field capacity issues and allow clubs  the flexibility to “opt out” of weekend play – 67 midweek games were played in 2016 (13% of the regular season schedule)
  • Weekend “Schedule Blocking “ allowed all teams to know their predetermined time slots for their various levels of play prior to the season starting and the schedule being released
  • The creation of an OWFL Provincial Festival centered around the August holiday weekend – all Provincial Championships (except Senior) were played over the 5 days at the Oshawa Civic Fields

We also had a number of Development Initiatives successfully implemented in 2016:

  • Under 9 – Expansion of the “playday” camps for the developing U9 group – 5 clubs successfully hosted weekend play at their home locations
  • Ontario Summer Games – Successful transition to a U17 ”All-star format” for OWFL’s entries into the Mississauga 2016 Summer games.  Feedback from players, coaches, clubs and parents has been overwhelmingly positive
  • Team Ontario – worked more closely with the OLA Team Ontario Committee to provide input and support to the Women’s U19 Field Program.   Team Ontario U19 successfully attracted an elite group of the top 18 Woman Lacrosse players in the Province that proudly represented Ontario in the BC U19 Women’s Field Invitational National Championships (and won!!!)

OWFL appreciates the support provided by the Club Reps, Coaches and Players of our 16 Member Clubs in the approval and encouragement of many of the new 2016 initiatives!While officially we have reached the “off season” there is lots of work to do in the coming months as we analyze the season, complete our record-keeping and prepare for the Annual General Meeting  (Friday November 11th  – Niagara Falls) and plan for the 2017 season!

We hope all players keep those sticks in your hands over the “off -season”!

U17 Ontario Summer Games

With Provincials complete, the season continued for OWFL U17 athletes competing in the Ontario Summer Games.  On August 11, 108 players, 12 coaches and 6 team managers checked into their residence at the University of Toronto Mississauga, on what was probably the hottest day of the summer.  What the residence didn’t have air-conditioning?  Soon after getting settled as best they could in the heat, they got dressed in their Ontario Summer Games swag, looking very sharp, and headed off to opening ceremonies at the Hershey Centre, to celebrate the opening of the Games with athletes from 23 other sports.

Competition started fast and furious the next morning, with Team Yellow and Team Red playing to a 10 all tie.  Five more very exciting and competitive games were played that day providing a great deal of excitement and entertainment for the many spectators.    The following day, were the quarter-finals and semi-finals, where some upsets occurred – at least based on the standings after day 1.  Team Orange, who were winless in day 1, had a great 2nd day, winning both their quarter and semi-final games.  Team Pink prevailed over Team Yellow in the other semi-final, setting the stage for a Team Orange vs Team Pink Championship Game.  Over the course of the event, the teams chemistry improved each game, and created some very high level and competitive lacrosse on the final day of competition.  Team Yellow outplayed Team Lime to capture the Bronze, while Team Orange faced a tough Team Pink in the Gold medal game.  These two teams battled it out to a 10 – 7 victory with Team Orange winning the 2016 Ontario Summer Games field lacrosse championship.

The Ontario Summer Games proved to be a great event for the U17’s, and confirmed that the OWFL have many talented athletes across the Province.   No doubt numerous future Team Ontario and Team Canada players will come from this group of talented athletes.  Congrats to the Ontario Summer Games 108 players, coaches, and managers on a great weekend of lacrosse, competition, and new friendships.

 Ontario Summer Games player applications are coming in almost daily which is great. Now it is time to get the coaching staff in place. This is a great development opportunity for your coaches to be part of this event. Please encourage your coaches to seriously consider being part of the Ontario Summer Games coaching staff. Here is an email for you for forward on to them.

 OWFL club rep coaches,

As you are aware the OWFL has taken a completely NEW approach with Ontario Summer Games, and one that many other sports already have implemented for this event. The new approach is to provide ALL OWFL clubs an opportunity to have their players and coaches participate in the Ontario Summer Games and benefitting from the tremendous development opportunity it provides. The Ontario Summer Games has hundreds of top level athletes and coaches from a variety of sports from all over Ontario. It is a considered a platform and stepping stone for future Provincial and National team athletes.

OWFL Rep Coaches are not only invited but encouraged to apply for one of 12 coaching positions (6 teams – 2 coaches per team). This is a great opportunity for coaches to work with and learn from other coaches. Coaches will be a major part of the OSG’s team selections and will gain valuable insight and guidance on selection process, as coaches will be working with Ontario Team Head Coach (and the 2015 U19 Canadian Team Assistant Coach), throughout the tryouts. The OSG’s will provide coaches a very competitive environment while working with top level players – a great opportunity for coaching development. For more info please go to the OWFL website coaching page. In order to apply for an OSG’s coaching position, please download the coaching application and upload it with your registration at the following link…..    REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS MAY 30.

http://www.owfl.org/Team/teamWeb.dll/PageContent?ContentId=64140&SessionId=64131261592801&co=1

U17 age eligible players have already been invited to try out for Ontario Summer Games, via emails to club reps, OWFL newsletter and the OWFL website. If you have players in your club or on your team and have not already registered for tryouts, you may want to encourage them to tryout. 108 players will be selected from your club teams and be divided into 6 equal teams to compete at Ontario Summer Games. This is a great opportunity as it provides a great entry point for players into the OWFL development stream to work toward future U19 Team Ontario and the Canadian National team programs.

Tryouts are scheduled for Sunday June 19th at Oshawa Civic Fields. Chosen players will participate on one of six U17 OWFL Summer Games teams competing at Summer Games being held in Mississauga August 11-14th.

2016 U17 Summer Games

OWFL U9 Development Program
The age at which girls are starting to play field lacrosse is getting younger every year!
We are extremely pleased with the growth throughout all of the centres particularly in our youngest official OWFL age category of U11 which has 13 teams entered for the 2016 season.
Many clubs however are starting players out much younger than U11 age within their own house league programs!
In order to  continue and assist with that growth the OWFL have developed a U9 Development Camp program.  This program will afford clubs the  opportunity to have their JK-Grade 2 aged house league players experience what the OWFL has to offer by participating in several OWFL play day camps scheduled during OWFL weekend play!  We are very excited for the growth in this age group and look forward to seeing the U9s out on the field at various OWFL events this summer.
Parents you can do your part by assisting your local club in organizing a group of U9s from you home centre to attend these events – for more information on how you can help please contact your local club head.
Clubs interested in the opportunity for your U9 age house league players please contactpromotions@owfl.org
What was that Call?
Ever watch your daughter play and think to yourself “What Was That Call?”
Girls field lacrosse has many rules that are designed around player safety and unless you are versed in the game it can sometimes be difficult to understand why a call was made – in this section of our newsletters we will attempt simply the rules for you!
“Three Seconds” Rule
This one is called much more frequently at the younger ages and can result in much parental sideline confusion  resulting in “what was that call” echoing from the sideline!
While inside the 11 meter fan area (which is the smaller pie shaped defined area off of the goalie’s crease), a defender must be within a stick length of a player on the attacking team.  If not within a stick length of an opponent, the defender can only be in the 11 meter fan area for 3 seconds.
There is an exception for defenders marking the attackers playing behind the goal.  These defenders can shadow the attacking player playing behind the goal in front of the goal cage which may result in her being in the 11 meter fan area for more than 3 seconds.
If a defender is called in violation of the three second rule a free position will be awarded to the attacking team.  The positioning of the free position will be based upon where the ball was when the foul was called.
If the ball is outside of the fan area, it stays where it is and the player in 3 seconds violation goes 4m behind the ball carrier.
If the ball is inside the fan area, the ball goes to the closest hash mark and the player in 3 seconds violation goes behind the ball carrier.  The fan area is cleared of all players and an 11m free position shot on the goal is taken.
Thank you to our Sponsors!

2016 N.O.C.P. CERTIFICATION

 Please see the attached document for information on Level 1 Umpire Clinic:

New 2016 clinic registration

 

 

    Special Announcements
U19 Team Ontario and U17 Summer Games
The OWFL is thrilled to announce the below information regarding the exciting new initiatives of the U19 Team Ontario program as well as the new 2016 Summer Games format focusing on the OWFL U17 age group!

 Canadian Lacrosse Association U19 Women’s Field Invitational National

Coquitlam, British Columbia – July 8 – 11

(U19 players are eligible)

The OWFL Executive Council is very excited to announce that Team Ontario U19 Women’s Field Lacrosse team will be competing in the Canadian Lacrosse Association U19 Women’s Field Invitational National, in Coquitlam, British Columbia, July 8 – 11, during the FIL U19 Men’s Field World Cup.

There will be a number of teams participating in the women’s event, from the U.S. and Canada.   Only Canadian teams will be eligible to be declared the National Champion which will be determined based on play from the 4 CLA Member Association team entries – Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and First Nations.

This is the first event of its kind, since the inception of the OWFL in 1997.   It is the first time ever players from the OWFL that comprise Team Ontario will have the opportunity to compete for a National Championship.    This is a tremendous opportunity for the OWFL and for our league’s top U19 players. Prior to the OWFL, a National Championship ran from 1983 – 1997 with British Columbia winning for 11 straight years from 1983 – 1993 and then Ontario claiming the title from 1994 – 1997.

With a National Championship being re-introduced, it is a chance for our top players to compete and gain valuable experience at the National level, while working toward the goal of winning the first National Championship since 1997.  This National event will no doubt provide elite level players from Ontario, B.C., Alberta and First Nations a valuable opportunity for development and identification as future Team Canada / National Team players.

We are thrilled with the recent announcement of Team Ontario U19 Head Coach, Tami Rayner who acted as Assistant Coach of Canada’s U19 World Championship team.  Coach Rayner’s wealth of experience and knowledge, and passion for working with and developing elite level players will be invaluable to our OWFL players entering the Provincial Team program.  See Team Ontario announcement, including a message from Coach Rayner here http://www.teamontariolacrosse.com/

Please watch for the notice, in the next few days, from Team Ontario on specific details regarding the registration process, tryout dates, times, locations, cost etc.

We would anticipate with the level of play and the depth of talent throughout the OWFL that tryouts will be very competitive with the result being a very talented U19 Team Ontario competing for the 2016 National Title.

ID Camp registration and tryout information can be found at the Team Ontario Website by following the link below:

Ontario Summer Games – Mississauga, Ontario – August 11 – 14

** NEW – U17 age eligible players only

The 2016 Ontario Summer Games are projected to be the largest in history. Athletes from all regions of Ontario will compete against fellow provincial athletes in their respective sports. The Games provide an opportunity to celebrate sport in Ontario and to provide athletes with development and competitive opportunities that will prepare them for national and international sport competitions.  With this in mind, the OWFL have taken a brand new approach to its participation in this prestigious event and in doing so have targeted the Ontario Summer Games for the OWFL’s top U17 age players.

108 U17 aged players will be selected from our OWFL club teams.   Those players will then be divided into 6 equal teams to compete for an Ontario Summer Games Championship.  Summer Games tryouts will be held Sunday June 19 at the Oshawa Civic Fields.   The tryout will consist of three 2 hour sessions of on field drills, skills and game play and will give player’s ample opportunity to be thoroughly evaluated by the selection committee.  The selection committee will be composed of the 12 Ontario Summer Games coaches selected to head up the 6 teams.  108 players and 5 alternatives will be announced the week following the tryout.  Players will have one practice in the week leading up to Ontario Summer Games.

The selected players will be divided equally into 6 teams.  The makeup of the teams will be formally recognized during Provincial Championship weekend, with players and coaches being individually introduced.

This is a very exciting opportunity for our top U17 OWFL age players to compete in their own championship, while gaining valuable development experience in what is anticipated to be a very highly competitive Summer Games Championship for Ontario Women’s Field Lacrosse.
