Hello Knights families ,

It is with regret that I must announce the cancellation of the 2020 Nepean Knights box lacrosse season.

This follows today’s statement from the Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) which can be found on their website (https://ontariolacrosse.com/content/news/covid-19-update-june-11-1.pdf).

As per our previous email to NKMLA members, we are offering three options regarding 2020 registration fees, and ask that you use the link below to respond as to which you prefer. 

We encourage option one or two if you are able to help our association cover costs for some external fees like credit card processing fees, and additional fees mandated by the OLA, such as the cost to operate our third party registration system, and the per player fee that is set each season and required to be remitted to them as governing body. Either of those options would also help us preserve start up funds for the 2021 season. If you have any questions about the following options, please email president@knightslacrosse.ca.

REFUND OPTIONS

Option 1: We can carry over your registration fee to the 2021 season, which would help the NKMLA with funding to start the next season in a healthier cash position and also save you the 2021 fee increase. Please note that if you choose this option but your player is then unable to play in 2021, we will provide a full refund at that time.

Option 2: We can provide a refund of your registration fee and you can voluntarily donate $25 of your refund to help offset the OLA fee.

Option 3:  We can provide a full refund of the entire 2020 registration fee. The refund would be made via the same form of payment by which you paid.

Please provide your choice by completing the form at this link. If we do not receive a response we will assume you would like to carry your registration over to the 2021 season.

Due to the number of registrations, please allow our volunteers up to 30 days to process all requests.

Over the years I’ve heard many people refer to their “lacrosse family”, and while the decision to cancel box lacrosse for this season brings sadness it is meant to help protect that family.

Remember that it’s never to early to start practicing for 2021, so keep your sticks in your hands! Along with the rest of the NKMLA executive I wish you all the best.
