Director Update #2

By NLC Staff, 06/02/20, 11:45AM EDT


Niagara Lacrosse Classic Friends,

We have been closely monitoring the pandemic, specifically here in New York State, and working to make decisions with the well-being of our participants and local community in mind. We’ve held out hope for the mid-July event but based on the timing of Phases and what is still unknown at this time, it is with everyone’s health and safety in mind that we have decided to postpone the Niagara Lacrosse Classic to our back-up date, August 22-23, 2020.

We understand the challenges associated with this situation and decision. We will continue to roll with the punches and line up the best possible event in August. We are in this together.  

Your registration will automatically roll over to the new dates. Please let us know your availability on the back-up dates of August 22-23 as soon as possible.  

 Additionally, we will continue to delay the balance due date until we have a clearer picture of what lies ahead, as not to add any additional burden.

Understanding that the pandemic will reshape the feel and flow of a lacrosse tournament, we are working to develop a new optimal format and plan for the Niagara Lacrosse Classic. We plan to re-launch’ in one-week with an adjusted format, structure and capacity all based on the safety and wellness of our participants. This new format will greatly limit the number of teams per age group.  So this will be a first registered, first served event and we will not be able to assist any late registrants once the capacity at each age group is reached.  Again, your registration will stand and your spots secured based on your initial registration.

Please look out for our note on June 8th when we re-launch the tournament registration and let us know if you have any questions in the meantime. We hope you and yours are doing well and we look forward to getting back onto the lacrosse field with you.

Mike and Kevin
