Lacrosse players have returned to play at the SLS Family Sports Centre and other sports facilities across the region.
Keith Berg, president of the Rockyview Lacrosse Association, says they got the players back on the floor on June 11, and most of the youth age divisions will continue to play until the end of the month.
With such a limited time window, they'll mainly take the form of scrimmage.
"We've abandoned doing any practices," says Berg. "We just wanted to get the kids to play some fun games, get sticks back in their hands, and play the sport."
He says some players didn't come back for Stage 2, but they raised enough money to booked time at the sports centre, and adjusted the teams to accommodate all those returning.
"We didn't want them to walk away from the sport," he says.
The Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League (RMLL) has canceled regular scheduled for all divisions, but many are instead playing an exhibition-style season starting in July. The junior and senior men's and women's teams, including those in Rocky View, are all currently preparing for that season that's expected to offer six to eight games.
They're also holding tournaments to take the place of regular playoffs. A couple of those season-ending tournaments are scheduled to be held at the SLSFSC in mid-to-late August.
Many teams would need to start from scratch if they missed another season.
