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.

Early registration is almost over!

Early bird registration will soon end on March 18.  Register by this date before the rate increases.

If you have not received a confirmation email, your registration was not completed. Please contact Jason via edmmasterslax at gmail dot com for any questions.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the draft on April 8!

Registration and Draft Information

The upcoming season is near and registration is open.  The executive is excited to announce details of the upcoming season and team selection process this year.

Team selection for the men’s teams will occur through a draft.  The goal is to have two representatives per team (likely 4 teams again).  A snake draft will occur and teams will select from small groups of players with similar ratings.  Each snake round will provide a new group of players while trying to include options from all 4 represented teams from the previous year.

If you wish to be selected with a friend, you may make a request to the competitions directs.  A friend request is accepted if both players make the request to the competitions director.  Gtilax21 at gmail dot com.

The Ladies League (2 teams) will be drafted as well in a modified version of this system, with parity and competitiveness being a priority.  Ladies draft night is also tentatively scheduled for April 8 in order to play the evaluation game on April 10.

The Draft location and date (tentatively April 8) will be announced shortly.  The goal is to have a social atmosphere similar to the last AGM.  There will be DOOR PRIZES that includes lacrosse heads, mesh kits, other lacrosse gear and a grand prize of a free registration (in the form of a refund).  You must be present to be entered into the draws!

There will also be drink tickets included and food will be provided and a cash bar will also be available for those that wish to purchase more.

For further questions regarding the league, please email edmmasterslax at gmail dot com.

For questions regarding the draft or if you wish to be a team representative contact the competitions director, Shaun Wilhelm via Gtilax21 at gmail dot com.

Preseason shinny dates are posted on the website.  An email will be sent with your designated time for each date.

See you on the floor.

Registration is Open!

Although a bit later than usual, registration for Masters is now open. Please note that the ALA has moved to a new system, SportzSoft so you will be required to register for a new account. Information from RAMP should have been transferred over but sometimes there are glitches. Be patient with us as we all learn the new system. Detailed information is in the Registration tab!

The league has decided that to develop new friendships and create a new level of respect for our competitors, that the league will draft entirely new teams this year. We are also looking for volunteer captains to help manage teams and the draft!

Volunteer Captains Needed

As we get closer to the 2016, we are looking for volunteer captains for both the men and women divisions. Captains will be responsible for drafting teams and managing the team throughout the season. Don’t worry, it isn’t a real formal thing or tons of work but it helps to keep the league running smoothly.

If you are interested, please contact any of the executive.

2016 Registration Update

The ALA has moved to SportzSoft for lacrosse registration this year. We will be updating our site with the details on how to register with this new system. Keep checking back for updates!

There will be both Men and Women’s divisions again in 2016.

EMLL only accepts fees by credit card at the time of registration.
