Also, the applicant is required to complete section one (Parent/Guardian/Player) on the Ontario Lacrosse Association’s (OLA) Release Request Form – Box and/or Field and submit the form to the KWMLA along with a $25.00 cash player release fee per release, this fee is non-refundable. 

Any requests will not be accepted prior to February 15th, 2022 of said year or as outlined by the OLA in that playing year. A request for a player release will only be accepted once the player is registered with KWMLA for the current season, including paying all dues and fees, including the $25.00 cash player release fee.  There will also be the non-refundable OLA registration fee required at the time of registration.  

Once received you will be notified within 72 hours of receipt of the request, you will be notified within 10 days of the decision and if a hearing is necessary.

The Junior Teams affiliated with KW Minor Lacrosse by residency may call up minor players on a game by game basis.  The following policies apply to this process.

  1. Permission (email) must be obtained in writing from the Head Coach (box & field if applicable).
  2. The President must be copied when permission is granted.
  3. The player’s first obligation is always to the team for which he is registered.

This policy will give all players the opportunity to gain experience in the skills required to transition to the appropriate level of Junior lacrosse while protecting the rights of the team where they are currently registered. It also protects the rights of the players who are currently registered on the Junior teams.

There can be no exceptions to this policy except by Board approval.


Rep Tryout Philosophy

Any player whose intent to play representative lacrosse in the current season shall try out for the first team for KWMLA in their respective age group.  Once released from first team, the intent of the player should be to continue with next level representative team until the player is either signed or released.
Any exemptions to the above philosophy must be at KWMLA board's approval.

Helmet Policy

All members of the KW Minor Lacrosse Association under the age of 18 must have a certified helmet and mask at all times when on the arena floor.
