Langley – The Arena Lacrosse League is excited to announce a partnership with Langley Events Centre that will bring the “ALL” (as it is officially known) to British Columbia. The ALL, which is currently preparing for its 5th season in Ontario, is the official minor league to the National Lacrosse League, providing a high-level development league for players, coaches, and officials with professional aspirations. The ALL West Division will begin play this December.
“We are all very excited about the growth and potential opportunities this announcement brings to the West. Our
goal has always been to create a pathway of opportunity for players trying to reach the highest level possible in the
game” stated ALL President Paul St. John. Now that the ALL West is a reality, it’s a big day for lacrosse players that
reside in Western Canada as they chase their dreams of one day playing pro in the NLL.”
The ALL West will have its inaugural draft November 20, and players 18 years of age and older are eligible to play. Potential players can now register online through the ALL website arenalacrosseleague.ca Training camps will open the week following the draft, with the opening games of the regular season set for the weekend of December 11/12. A minimum 12-game regular season will conclude with Championship Weekend for the West set for March 26 and 27.
The current ALL East Division in Ontario features the Oshawa Outlaws, Paris Riverwolves, Peterborough Timbermen, Six Nations Snipers, St. Catharines Shockwave, Toronto Monarchs and Whitby Steelhawks. To learn more about the league, visit www.arenalacrosseleague.ca.
