2020 Regional Combines Recap
Late December and January played host to four (4) Regional Combines in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan in preparation for another year of international competition and to reintroduce players to staff and systems.
In addition to the 2020 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship, Canada staff is preparing for the inaugural IIJL Commonwealth Cup in Melbourne, Australia this March and the 2020 IIJL World U17 Lacrosse Championship this October. "Our Regional Combines are becoming increasingly important as our international competition calendar continues to grow." Explained Canada General Manager Chris Fox. "We place a lot of importance on a player's maturity and competence; of course because they are representing their country, but especially when we are traveling to the other-side of the world." Fox added.
