Polar Bear Winter League



2022-23 Marks Polar Bear Lacrosse 20th Season!

Play outdoors on Sundays (HS boys play on Saturday afternoons) with your teammates, full field games, and certified officials. Players are assigned to teams by the school they attend. If your school does not have a full team, players from the same school are kept together and are assigned to teams by the positions they play. Athletes are placed in the division that best suits their age and playing ability.

Polar Bear Lacrosse League is open to boys and girls in Grades 1-12.  Two hours of competition each week, teams play eight (8) games over four weekends, including a championship!  If a division has enough teams, and the winter weather cooperates we may schedule additional games - this policy varies from year to year and from division to division.

Eight divisions to ensure you are placed on a team that best suits your age and playing ability.  Please note, there are no weekday practices for Polar Bear League.  

Players must have at least one year of game experience to enroll in the Polar Bear League. Players with little or no game experience will be placed in the CUB Division. The Polar Bear Cub “learn to play” Division is open to both boys and girls from 1st to 8th grades.  Cubs sessions are 12-1:30 on Sundays only - these sessions consist of learning basic lacrosse skills for new players.  Cubs do not play games, but may scrimmage towards the end of the Cubs season if the athletes are ready.
