Registration

2022 Registration

Registrations for GLA Initiation, house league and competitive lacrosse programs can be done on-line. The Ontario Lacrosse Association uses SportzSoft to provide online registration for all lacrosse players in Ontario. All payment for base registration fees will be handled through your personal SportzSoft account. By registering as a member of the GLA, players and their parents accept and agree to abide by the GLA Code of Conduct.

The GLA will now be using SportsEngine and its features (team assignments, player availability for practices & games, team communications) in 2022 to manage the house league and competitive teams.  A SportsEngine account will be created for you following completion of the SportzSoft registration process for 2022.  Make sure to download the SportsEngine App!

REGISTER NOW FOR THE 2022 SEASON: CLICK HERE (this will take you to the SportzSoft site where you can login or create a new account for the 2022 season)

What you will need to register

  1. A valid email address is needed to create a SportzSoft account.
  2. New GLA members must provide proof of age documentation during online registration (copy of a birth certificate or passport). This proof of age documentation must be uploaded in *.jpg, *.png or *.pdf format during the SportzSoft online registration process.
  3. Valid credit card.  

Multiple player discount: The GLA offers a 30% discount to families with three (3) or more registered players.  The discount is applied to the third and any subsequent player registered from a single family and is to be applied to the lowest registration fees. Please contact registrar@gloucester-lacrosse.com for your discount to be applied PRIOR to completing your registration

Quebec Residents: In order to play in the OLA, Quebec residents up to U15 age group MUST be released by the Fédération de crosse du Québec. Please send an email to directeur.technique@crossequebec.com requesting your release to play in the OLA.  Once you have received a response, please forward it to the GLA registrar. Your registration is not complete, and you will not be allowed on the floor, prior to this release being received.

 If you are in the U17 age group and up, you must seek your release from the Canadian Lacrosse Association.  You will need to register through their online transfer portal  http://cla.pointstreaksites.com/view/cla/transfers and you must request to be released from Quebec to Gloucester.
