Lacrosse worlds no-go for university players
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.
