Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I have not been getting my email(s) responded to, nor have I received any communication from the association.

There could be several things going on, please complete the following steps.

First step, double check your registration information by logging into the registration platform that you registered your player on. (e.g. Beaumont Lacrosse, Leduc Lacrosse, Sherwood Park Lacrosse).

Second, once you confirm your contact is correct, please check your junk and spam folder.

Thirdly, please reach out to and let us know you don't seem to be getting our emails or team notifications. We can then help you. I'll review our opt-out list, if your email address is not there, then I can send a test email through RAMP. If it does not go through to you, it means your email address is being blocked by RAMP because you have, at some point, unsubscribed from all RAMP communications. This link is found at the bottom of all emails sent from RAMP mailer. Perhaps this was done in the past with another association/player that used the RAMP registration system. If this is the case, RAMP support needs to be contacted and you need to be manually removed from their unscubscribe list by RAMP support. Please email: if you suspect this. And please let us know so we can forward you a summary of our association communications.

What days of the week are game play for the 2024 Season

For the 2024 Box Lacrosse playing season, game days will be scheduled in accordance with facility availability and Game Official availability. Please visit our Divisions Homepages for newly posted information about season start and playing days of the week.

I have registered my child, when can I expect them to start playing?

The Greater Edmonton Lacrosse Council has scheduled league game play to start mid-April. Exact date TBD. Planning the schedule depends on many factors including facility and official availability, as well as, the number of teams formed per division. As registration levels per association have been fluctuating these past couple of years, it is difficult to predict which divisions will have enough players to form teams, etc. Registration deadlines are determined by each association, but typically close mid-March to the end of March allowing for game schedule release. Once the GELC releases the game schedule, the associations can then plan practice floor times for teams in each division. The process is dependent on registration numbers and if associations have enough players to form teams.
The Beaumont Raiders will have teams formed and players on the floor at the beginning of April. Some divisions will have earlier floor time to allow for an evaluation day that splits players in a division into teams to create an even parity between teams for new and experienced players. I can assure you that as soon as I have the information, I will update you with the information. Please check back on the website often. We can't wait to get on the floor either, 2024 is going to be a great season!

I registered my athlete in U7, when do we get the FREE pinnie?

We are excited to give FREE sublimated pinnies to ALL U7 registered players. These pinnies will be used during gameplay and will be yours to keep at the end of the season. Coaches or Managers will be given the pinnies to distribute once teams are established.

I have a child in U9 can I request that they play with their friend?

Yes U7 and U9 allow reciprocal friend requests. The divisions for U7 & U9 are co-ed teams that are not leveled or evaluated.

Unfortunately at levels U11 and up, we are unable to accommodate friend requests. These levels are evaluated and divided to ensure fairness and parity between teams.

I would like to help coach my players team this season, how do I get started?

Thank you for supporting our athletes! Please visit our Coaches Corner tab on our website. Mail our coaching director with details about you and the division your athlete is playing in.

I noticed a change in division names from Male/Female now to Men/Women. I find this strange because my child is 8.

This season you may notice a change to our division names and age groups, as well as, a change in labeling from "Male/Female" now to "Men/Women". This may seem strange to you based on the age groups of our athletes, but this change comes with guidance from Lacrosse Canada in promoting inclusiveness. The term "female" connotes a biological category, while "women" is a whole human person, making it technically a noun. The Beaumont Raiders are supporting the use of women as an adjective to achieve a more inclusive meaning that emphasizes gender over biological sex. In the coming days, you will notice this change occur in all of the GELC member associations.

My athlete is turning 17 in 2024, where can my box lacrosse athlete play?

Please visit the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League website: for information on Junior A, B and Female Divisons
