Re: Boundary Change Effective 2018
the past year, the Calgary District Lacrosse Association has been reviewing the
club boundaries which have not been reviewed in 15 years. The City of Calgary
has grown with new neighbourhoods and a change in demographics in older ones,
with the city limits moving outward.
eight CDLA clubs have been active participants in the Boundary Review process
with a representative from each club on the committee. After several meetings
over the past year, the committee put forth recommendations to the Board of
Directors who voted on the changes this past weekend.
The goal of CDLA Boundary Review was to:
communities that were separated by a geographic boundary to play together with
the size disparity between small and large clubs.
competitiveness across all clubs.
the game of lacrosse.
The following boundary changes will take effect
immediately for the 2018 season:
1. The communities of Coventry Hills, Country Hills, Harvest Hills, Beddington, Huntington Hills, Thorncliffe, Greenview, Highland Park, Mountainview, Tuxedo Park Crescent Heights, Panorama and Carrington
will transfer from the Calgary Hornets to the Calgary Knights.
2. The communities of Ramsay, Ogden, Inglewood and
will transfer from the Calgary Axemen to the Calgary Knights
community of Livingston
from the Rockyview Rage to the Calgary Knights
community of Chestermere
from the Calgary Knights to Strathmore Venom.
boundary line for the High River Heat and the Okotoks Raiders will be 450th Avenue
North Boundary for High River and the South Boundary
Any Bantam or Midget aged player has the option of
remaining with their existing club (2005 aged players and older)
player must declare this prior to the 2018 season and register with that club.
cannot switch clubs and then return the following year. 2006 age siblings or
younger, of players noted above
Do Not have the option of remaining with their existing
that wish to have their older child grandfathered with their existing club,
will transfer their young child/children to the new club and therefore have
children in 2 clubs.
families wish to have all children with one club, they will be required to
transfer the older child to the new club.
decisions have been difficult and we understand there will be challenges for
those families affected by the new boundaries. We believe that going forward
the new boundaries will create a better playing environment for all within the
CDLA. The CDLA will be reviewing its boundaries every two years to be able to
keep up with the pace of the growing City of Calgary and surrounding areas.
would like to thank the Boundary Review Committee for their countless hours
volunteered throughout this process.
