The OWFL is holding tryouts for OWFL U17 aged players (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) in order to select the participants for the Ontario Summer Games teams. Tryouts will be held in Guelph at the University of Guelph fields on Saturday May 14th and Sunday May 15th.
From tryouts, the top 96 OWFL U17 players will be selected and divided into 6 equal teams to compete for the Ontario Summer Games Championship.
The 2022 Ontario Summer Games are being held in Mississauga, Ontario on
July 21st to 24th, 2022.
The Ontario Summer Games is Ontario’s largest multi-sport event, with athletes from all regions of Ontario competing against fellow provincial athletes in their respective sports.
Ontario Summer Games are like a “mini Olympics” with opening ceremonies, parade of athletes, the athlete’s village, and of course tremendous competition in various sports. The OWFL is very proud to be a part of such a prestigious event for amateur sport, and are thrilled with the opportunity and platform it provides for our lacrosse athletes.
The Ontario Summer Games creates a phenomenal atmosphere for the participants. It is fun, competitive, and you meet so many people. For our age eligible players and our coaches, you will not want to miss this opportunity.
As well, this event has been an important development and competitive opportunity for athletes in preparation for National and International Competition. It is no different for women’s field lacrosse. No doubt future Provincial and National team players will come from the pool of our top 96 Ontario Summer Games athletes.
