Columbia for the 2014 Minto Cup championship.

Hosted by the British Columbia Lacrosse Association (BCLA) and the BC Junior ‘A’ Lacrosse League (BCJALL) in conjunction

with the Langley Events Centre, the Canadian Lacrosse Association’s (CLA) Canadian Junior ‘A’ National Championship will

start it’s on Saturday August 16th when the Ontario Champions, Six Nations Arrows take on BC and Western Final

Champions, Coquitlam Adanacs.

“The Langley Events Centre is a great stage for the 2014 Minto Cup – we are ready to showcase some of the best Canadian

lacrosse action here in B.C.” said Ken Wood, BCJALL Commissioner. “The BCLA and BCJALL, in conjunction with the Langley

Events Centre staff, are excited to host the 2014 Minto Cup at the Langley Events Centre.”

that you will not want to miss this event – the best of the best in Junior ‘A’ Canadian lacrosse will hit the floor at the Langley

Events Centre and competition will be fierce.”

“The Minto Cup has returned to a best-of-seven final series in an East versus West format; I am positive Canadian lacrosse

fans are in for an action-packed seven games series of premier lacrosse,” said Joey Harris, CLA President. “With the changes

to the Minto Cup format, B.C.-based fans have already witnessed some great lacrosse when the Coquitlam Adanacs and the

Calgary Junior Mountaineers faced off in the best-of-five Western Final series, vying to be the West representative at this

year’s Minto Cup. That same level of premier lacrosse will undoubtedly continue through to the Minto Cup final series. The

BCLA and BCJALL have a rich hosting history and know what it takes to put on top-rate national championship” continued
