We have continued to closely monitor the pandemic, specifically here in New York State, and have dedicated our time and energy to make decisions with the well-being of our participants and local community in mind. We’ve held out hope for the August NLC, event but based on current circumstance 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 Fall event dates, October 3 -4, 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 October. We are all 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 Oct 3-4 as soon as possible. Additionally, we will continue to delay until balance charges 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 have developed what we believe to be an optimal format and plan for the Niagara Fall Classic. This new 1-day, 3 game, 4 team/division format will greatly limit the number of participants; 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.
If you are not able to attend the event in October, please review the NLC 360 plan (sent to team admins) for your financial options, and inform us of your decision as it relates to your 2020 funds.
We hope you and yours are doing well and we look forward to getting back onto the lacrosse field with you, please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions in the meantime.
Mike and Kevin
