About the Knights Competitive Program

In addition to its House League program, the Knights Lacrosse Association also offers a competitive lacrosse program. All players are encouraged to play in both programs. The NKMLA tries to field two teams at each level, from Tyke to Midget and a single Intermediate team, where numbers are sufficient.

Try-outs start in early April and practice is normally scheduled for once or twice a week. The teams participate in several tournaments throughout the season. The Novice to Midget Number 1 teams usually participate in 4 tournaments: 2 in the Toronto area, and two local tournaments in Nepean and Gloucester. The Tykes, all Number 2 teams and the Intermediate team usually participate in the 3 local tournaments: Cornwall, Nepean and Gloucester. All teams can and are encouraged to participate in the Provincial Tournament. The Provincial tournaments are offered at the level of competition of your team. Teams that reach the “A” level, based on the decision of the coached and parents, play an additional two qualifier tournaments in the Toronto area.

The Association promotes the competitive season as a family event. We try to arrange tournaments and hotels together as an Association. Many families bring their BBQs, plan events/excursions around the tournament games, etc. in an attempt to try to make the weekend a semi-family vacation with the added lacrosse games. Family vacation times are accommodated during the season but for the lead up time to the Provincials, the Association does ask each family be committed to the team and its development and to plan around this time to allow sufficient preparation time for the Team.

Competitive Team-3 Players

Based on the feedback from the last seasons, and in response to concerns regarding house league team cohesion, Nepean Knights have reformatted the competitive Team-3 program. A third competitive team will be formed if sufficient players are interested and committed to participating. Team-3 members will participate in the house league program. Attendance at house league practices and games is important and will be a requirement for competitive team-3 program continuation. Please consider the competitive team-3 as an opportunity for those kids who would like an extended season. Travel to away tournaments will be reduced. Travel to provincial finals in Whitby will be highly encouraged, but not mandatory. Coach selection for Team-3 will occur concurrently with Team-1 and Team-2
