Lacrosse worlds no-go for univer­sity play­ers

Ottawa Citizen - - SPORTS -

The Cana­dian Univer­sity Field Lacrosse As­so­ci­a­tion isn’t go­ing to wade into a dis­pute be­tween the men’s na­tional team and the sport’s na­tional body. The Na­tional Lacrosse Team Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion and the Cana­dian Lacrosse As­so­ci­a­tion are locked in a stale­mate over fund­ing, in­sur­ance and other is­sues and as a re­sult Canada does not have a team to send to July’s world cham­pi­onship. CLA high-per­for­mance di­rec­tor Doug Luey sent an email Tues­day to Cana­dian univer­sity pro­grams in an at­tempt to gauge their in­ter­est in rep­re­sent­ing Canada at the tour­na­ment. “We are not go­ing to be in­volved in the tour­na­ment or the dis­cus­sion as CUFLA,” said spokesper­son Stephen Stamp.
