ONTARIO — The Ontario Junior A Lacrosse League (OJALL), the premier junior box lacrosse league in Ontario, today announced that the league intends to return to the floor in 2021.
There is no playbook for these uncertain times, but over the past number of weeks, our league has worked tirelessly on a plan that we believe is in the best interest of our players,” said OJALL Commissioner Mark Grimes. “We have some of the best minds in lacrosse working together to get our players back on the floor safely, and I want to thank everyone who has stepped up to help our teams navigate this pandemic, and most importantly move the league forward.
The OJALL Return to Play plan is spearheaded by Bill Greer (Burlington Chiefs), who is working alongside Cody Jamieson (Six Nations Arrows) and Bruce Codd (Orangeville Northmen) to ensure the league delivers the best possible product in 2021.
The 2021 season will debut a suite of premiere events aimed at boosting the profile of junior players and National Lacrosse League (NLL) prospects. Registration for the league’s return to play is live at ontariojuniorlacrosse.com, and is open to returning players born from 2003 to 1999, and OJALL hopefuls born as early as 2004 and 2005. Players registered with the league will have access to these events, and more.
Details about the 2021 entry draft, player training camps, junior combine, pro showcase, and other league information will be coming in the next few weeks. For the most up to date information and breaking news, sign up for our newsletter at ontariojuniorlacrosse.com.
