CLax junior programs taking off in second year–Veltman


The Canadian Lacrosse League was created with the vision of providing a place for the wealth of talented players to keep growing in the game, helping to bridge the gap between junior and the National Lacrosse League and senior summer ball. But the vision was about more than just the pro game. CLax wants to give young players a chance to get on the floor during the winter and to keep their development on an upward trajectory. Judging from the response, it appears that the league was right in suspecting that players were looking for just such an opportunity. Deputy Commissioner Jim Veltman told the Brampton Guardian that Junior CLax had 168 players in three age groups. He says that this year they will have six age groups, from tyke to junior, and they expect about 400 players to take part. Junior CLax start January 25 and runs till the beginning of April. Veltman says registration includes a pro style jersey for their local team and a pass for the CLax pro games.
