31st Annual Calgary Box Lacrosse Tournament Now Full

The Calgary 2007 31st Annual Box Lacrosse Tournament is now officially full. Seventy two teams in the Novice – Midget divisions – ’A’ and ‘B’ categories – from across Canada will be competing over the Canada Day long weekend in the largest facility of its kind in North America.

This year is proving to be one of the most competitive team line-ups that we have ever had with a record 36 teams attending from outside of the City of Calgary.

Ontario is sending 4 teams, Saskatchewan has 7, British Columbia with 6, and another 19 from around Alberta with the balance of 36 teams belonging to the Calgary District Lacrosse Association. This association comprises the City of Calgary and the rural communities of Cochrane, Airdrie, Strathmore, High River and Okotoks.

You can view the team listing and game schedule at: http://www.okotokslacrosse.com/teams07.htm and we will be posting game results on line as they happen so the folks and fans at home can see how their teams are doing.

To keep the players and parents entertained between the games, we are going all out:

Saturday is a preview of the Greatest Show on Earth – the Calgary Stampede! We kick off with a free stampede breakfast for all 1500 players and coaching staff during which time we will have a 48’ mobile stage set up for performers to entertain the masses. Young country & western singers along with jugglers and illusionists will captivate the player’s attention while they take a break in-between their games.

Sunday is more of the same with celebrity impersonators roving the crowd and circus acrobatics displaying their skills and strength. Obviously this isn’t just another tournament – it’s meant to be an event that’s enjoyed and remembered by all for a long time to come!

We are already taking bookings for the 2008 tournament so if you’re interested and want more info, contact us at ipartner48@gmail.com.

  1. Hi, I am volunteer for the Okotoks Mustangs PEE WEE Division. I was wondering if there were any tournaments this year that our team could register in.

    Thank you for your time.
