“We support each and every player and their team’s pursuit of a Canadian National Championship. We understand that the World Junior Lacrosse Championship is a new event and until a cooperative schedule can be arranged the tournament will be held in August at the height of Canadian junior playoffs. Our current scenario mirrors other international and domestic championship schedules that occur simultaneously, a perfect example being the IIHF Men’s World Hockey Championship and NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. As teams advance through the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, players whose teams have been eliminated are free to participate for their respective countries at the IIHF Men’s World Hockey Championship. By implementing a 40 Man Player Pool proportionate to the population of junior players from each Province we are able to navigate the challenging dates and prepare a diligent list to streamline our selection process.” 

The 40 Man Player Pool is a prerequisite to competing with Canada at the 2018 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship. An updated 40 Man Player Pool will be released Monday of each week leading up to our 25 Man Final Roster announcement on July 22, 2018. 

CANADIAN LACROSSE LEAGUE – Over the past three (3) years the Canada program has evolved from three separately run regional teams into one cohesive national non-profit organization that provides world class experiences inclusive to all junior players across Canada.
