World Lacrosse Members:

The IIJL World Junior Championships scheduled for August 8-14,2022 in Winnipeg, Manitoba is not a World Lacrosse (WL) or Lacrosse Canada (LC) sanctioned event.  

World Lacrosse members who participate are advised that there may be teams present who are not organized or otherwise sanctioned by their NGB, though may be playing under the name of an NGB.  We encourage WL members to perform their due diligence before participating, as neither World Lacrosse, Lacrosse Canada, and in some instances NGBs have any oversight of this event or the teams participating.

WL is the International Governing Body for Lacrosse recognized as such by the International Olympic Committee and the Association of Recognized International Sport Federations and the International World Games Association.
