Following yesterday’s State Government announcement of a lockdown extension, it is with great regret that the LV Board has determined that the 2021 LV season is cancelled. We continued to remain hopeful that we could play a reduced finals series; however, this is not possible.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our clubs for your support and understanding as we navigated through the last eight weeks of uncertainty. Several clubs and their officials contacted LV to offer their services to assist during this period.

Whilst it is with great disappointment to cancel the season, the Board will meet tonight to discuss and decide on the awarding of premiership/minor premierships, competition best and fairests and other associated awards.

Whilst the field season has concluded, lacrosse is a year-round sport, and we can now look ahead to the competitions and proposed carnivals.

Duncan McKenzie has led the committee administering the Under 15 boys’ and girls’ carnival. LV is determined to play this and if the State Government allows community sport to commence on Friday, 24 September then this will go ahead as planned. Duncan and his committee have formulated alternative schedules should this be necessary. Ongoing communication will be provided.

As stated in the letter from Chair Jess Symonds on Tuesday, LV will be fixturing a 6s competition during the summer.  To assist in our programming, we will be sending a survey for each club to complete to provide important background information before finalising the fixture.

The Box Lacrosse competition is hopeful of commencing their competition on Friday 22 October at Altona. Rod Maher will be coordinating this competition on behalf of Lacrosse Victoria. Information for this will be distributed in due course.

Thank you again for your support but opportunities to play lacrosse will continue.
