ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
A DIVISION OF ORILLIA MINOR LACROSSE
The Orillia Lady Kings program is governed under the rules, regulations and by-laws of Ontario Women’s Field Lacrosse (OWFL).
Women’s Field Lacrosse is a game that is fast, free flowing, easy to understand & watch. Foot speed & quickness are the main skills. There is no body contact, so equipment needs are minimal (mouth guard, eye goggles and girls field stick).
The game is played outside on grass and/or turf fields.
The first Orillia team competed in the 1997 season. That first year, 20 girls signed up and a single rep team was entered in the Under 20 division of OWFL. The growth of women's field lacrosse since then has been significant at the provincial level and the expansion of the game in Orillia has mirrored this trend.
Highlights Orillia Lady Kings program:
200 + total player registrations in the combined House League and Rep programs
30 + volunteer House League coaches – Primarily High School and University female players – mentoring and teaching younger players.
5-6 Rep teams compete each season - mid-May to early August.
2014 saw the birth of the Little Lady Kings program for girls ages 5, 6 and 7
The Orillia Lady Kings field lacrosse program operates outdoors at the Rotary Place facility (100 University Ave) where all House League games, Rep practices, hosting weekends and home games are played. While the majority of players come from Orillia and surrounding area, the House League and Rep programs also draw players from Barrie, Midland, Huntsville and Sudbury.
