The Ontario Minor Field Lacrosse League has officially cancelled its 2020 season.
“Although there was a great deal of initial optimism after the July 24 Return to Activity guidelines came out, we regretfully announce that despite our best planning efforts, the 2020 fall field season will not be able to proceed,” an OMFLL release said.
The OMFLL said there were two restrictions put in place by the Ontario Ministry of Health which had to be lifted in order for any season to proceed. The league needed to have contact, and the ability for teams to travel and compete against clubs from outside of their health region.
“At this point, the emergency orders and border closures are being further extended and Christine Elliott, minister of health for Ontario, has indicated that further relaxing of the Ontario guidelines will not occur until there is a vaccine or treatment in place for COVID-19,” The OMFLL’s release said.
