2017 EMLL Teams & April 23 Games

Teams are now posted. Please visit the Teams section for your team (ignore the drop downs until I figure out how to remove them). First games take place this Sunday, April 23.

Women’s Division: 6pm – Purple vs. White

Men’s Division: 7pm – Blue vs. Red; 8pm – White vs. Yellow.

Jerseys will likely be ready by next week so bring your old jersey or a colour of the shirt of your team.

Black will have a bye this week with your first game scheduled for April 30th. We are working on adding more floor time on Sundays and Wednesdays to add extra games. There is limited floor time with ongoing renovations and low ceiling options at City of Edmonton facilities. Some Sundays will double up, and everyone will play the same amount of games. The schedule will follow early next week.

We’re all looking forward to a fun and exciting 2017 EMLL Season.

Last Evaluations & 2017 Season

The final evaluation will take place this Wednesday at Glengarry Arena – 8:30pm for the Women’s division, 9:30pm for the Men’s division.. After that, it will take a few days for the teams to be made. Upon completion, an email will go out to all members regarding your team.
The season is set to begin Sunday, April 23rd. Sunday night games are at Southside Arena. The Women’s division will play at 6pm. Men’s division – there are 5 teams this year so we have elected to have Wednesday games rather than double up on Sunday’s. More details will be available once teams are made. Sunday games will be the same times of either 7pm or 8pm games.
Please join our Facebook page for immediate communication and to follow updates.

2017 EMLL REGISTRATION

It’s that time of year again, Everyone. Dust of the ol’ lax sticks, start working out your forearms and bust a move on the lax floor. Registration for the 2017 season is now up!
There are a few things to note: Due to Coronation and Bill Hunter city arenas undergoing extensive renovations over the summer, there is limited floor space with high ceiling heights available. We have had to move the floor to Southside Arena for games and Glengarry Arena for Shinny/Games for both the Men’s and Women’s leagues. As of right now, the first shinny/evaluation will be on April 12, 2017 at Glengarry Arena. We are currently working on getting some floor time elsewhere. Should we be successful in getting an earlier start, we will send out an email.
Due to the weekend that Easter falls on, our first scheduled game is April 23, 2017. But don’t sweat. The Men’s league is also looking at utilizing some Wednesday shinny’s for games. As this is finalized, this will be communicated.
Draft Beer Night. The Men’s league will NOT undergo a draft this year; however, we will be hosting a social event that will feature draft beer and food. This will provide members with the opportunity to meet each before grueling it out on the floor. The date of the social event is April 21, 2017, 7pm. Location: TBD (hoping to book the Armory hall again near Kingsway). During the social event, the Woman’s league WILL be hosting a draft. So men, come have some draft beer and cheer on the women’s draft.
The Executive also voted on capping Men’s teams to 14 plus a goalie per team. What does this mean? Our goal is to grow the league to 6 teams; however, we have to plan for 4 teams with the ability to add more floor time if needed. That being said, the first 56 players to register for the Men’s league will be guaranteed a spot on a team. The intention is to keep the teams the same as much as possible. However, due to the cap, we may have to shuffle some players to keep the playing field as even as possible. If you wish to be on your friend’s team, please email Turtle at: gtilax21@gmail.com.
Now for the facts:
Women’s League:
– Games: Sunday’s @ 6pm, Southside Arena
– Practice: Wednesday’s @ 8pm, Glenngary
– Cost: $180 without a jersey, $210 with a jersey
Men’s League:
– Games: Sundays @ 7pm or 8pm, Southside Arena (Some games on Wednesday’s, time TBD)
– Shinny: Wednesday’s @ Glengarry Arena
– Cost: $250 includes a jersey and shorts.
The 2017 Spring Fling Tournament announcement will also come out this week.
If you have any questions, please email lacrossewomen@gmail.com for the Women’s league and edmmasterslax@gmail.com for the Men’s league.

Thanks and we look forward to another successful year.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the floor!

Draft Night Update

Hi everyone,

Draft night has been confirmed for April 8 commencing at 630pm. The event is being held at the WO & Sgts Mess at the Jefferson Armoury. Jefferson Armoury is one of the two locations in which the army reserves conduct their training. Here is some more information on them via Facebook and Yelp.

The armoury is named after Brigadier James Currie Jefferson, who was the Commanding Officer of the Loyal Edmonton Regiment during the Second World. It is home to the Loyal Edmonton Regiment, B Squadron South Alberta Light Horse, 15 Field Ambulance, the Cadet Instructor Cadre School and 6 Intelligence Company.

Registered players will receive an email invitation via EventBrite to register for the event. We need you to register so that we can make sure to have enough drinks and food on hand! Your ticket will be your access to the food and drinks! There will be cash bar available and it is real cash. There is no point of sale system at this facility but there is an ATM. There are also ATMs available at Kingsway Mall across the street. Parking is free.

Men’s Pre-Season Update

The players lists for the pre-season have been determined and are below. We would like to emphasis that this is preseason and we have many new players. The goal should be to defend appropriately and be inclusive during the play.

If you don’t see your name on the list, there are only two possibilities.

You are a goalie, in which your floor time will be arranged with Darren Walker.

You are not fully registered. If you are in this category, the registrar has already written to you to try to complete your registration. You can not go on the floor without payment being received.

March 28 and March 30 will have the same groups for both days. The April 3 times will be determined after the March 30 run.

March 28 is at South Side Arena.

March 30 is at Coronation Arena.

Push for more players!

We are at a bit of a crossroad in our registration numbers. Right now we are sitting in a position of being just 10-12 players shy of being able to field 6 teams for the men’s league this upcoming season. We are asking everyone to encourage those who may be undecided to register because it’s not too late! As well, if you know anyone new who might want to try, work to convince them to give lacrosse a try! The final number of teams will be decided on Apr 3.
