Lake Placid Summit Classic
Upon pulling the plug on our final contingency plan to operate just a portion of the 31st Summit Classic, the sense of defeat was hard to ignore. It just hurt. From a point in early April, when we really started to understand the magnitude of the virus, a flame lit inside our team to do everything possible in our power to host the Lake Placid Summit Classic. Sure, a portion of the spark was related to the significant financial consequence for our small team of not operating at all, but the real gas was based on the simple belief that we could offer a space of hope, an opportunity to ‘forget’ the daily hardships, and provide some normalcy for our lacrosse family. More than ever, we believed everyone ‘needed’ Placid. We gave it all that we could, day in and day out for 5 months, but it wasn’t in the cards.
There was a silver lining.
During the 5 month grind leading up to the scheduled event dates, we were able to correspond and communicate often with so many of our participants and push our relationships to new boundaries.
Pondering that thought, it’s really the unity that makes the Lake Placid Summit Classic so special to us, and hopefully to you, too. I believe that when we all enter that invisible bubble in Lake Placid during the tournament, the camaraderie, competition and respect beams from each and every person and creates a truly special unity. Positive attitudes. Extra bounce in the step. Everyone just seems really happy, all at the same time. It’s our collective HAPPY PLACE.
I want to reassure you that it’s still there, waiting patiently for us to bring it to life again. It can’t come soon enough.
We’ll see you in August for what will certainly be the BEST Placid ever.
Onward and Upward!

Lake Placid Summit Classic – Truly One Of A Kind
The Lake Placid Summit Classic is a one of a kind lacrosse event, a true representation of what the summer lacrosse scene can be at its best, and it’s all happening RIGHT NOW!
In general, lacrosse in Lake Placid, NY – all the different events, the games being played, the people you meet, the action you see out on the field, the views – is all a truly amazing experience. The lacrosse action runs for much of the summer at this point, but since 1990 the Lake Placid Summit Classic has been the pinnacle of the area’s lacrosse activity and truly a high peak on the adult end of the range. The tournament is huge, extremely well run, and as competitive as it gets. The star power out on the fields is impressive, and what’s even better is that this star power runs for generations… in either direction.
Lake Placid Summit Classic – Est. 1990
The Lake Placid Summit Classic brings people from all over to one of the most beautiful parts of New York, which is lovingly called “Upstate”, and then the lacrosse happens, the reunions commence, and an unrivaled sense of community and camaraderie invades each field, hotel, swimming hole, restaurant, and bar.
2018 has turned out to be no different, and starting on June 29th and running through August 5th, Lake Placid is once again host to an amazing event, with amazing people, and on-field play that will leave you thirsting for more and feeling inspired, no matter how young (or old) you may be.
The week of Lake Placid Lacrosse kicks off with the younger crowd, and on July 30th, 31st, and August 1st you will see two high quality divisions of 2021/22 boys games (Gold & Silver), three boys division of 2019/20s (Gold & Silver & Summit), the Northstar Division for top level girls players in grades 2018-21, another high quality girls division for 2019-21, a girls division for 2022/23s, AND then on August 1st there is yet another girls opportunity where a fast paced 7v7 format takes over and the action picks up in quickness even more. We haven’t even gotten to the adult divisions yet and this is already a ridiculous amount of top level lacrosse!
August 1st through the 3rd sees the older fellows take the field, and 60+, 55+, and 50+ divisions all stacked with teams, it has to be one of the highest concentration of “older” lacrosse guys on the planet each year. You’ll see alumni teams, classic old school club teams, and a ton of amazing old gear. Some of these guys have bought all the new stuff, but many still rock padding or sticks that are older than the kids who just finished playing in the days before. It’s a glorious collection of some of the game’s greats, and the reunion on and off the field is something to behold. The competition is still fierce, and these old men swing their sticks like they were much younger, but the strongest force generated by these three days is one of reconnecting and friendship. It’s about old retelling stories, making up new ones, and picking up a couple of bruises so you know you’re still alive.
The Lake Placid Summit Classic is about coming back out to give it your all no matter how old one may be, and it’s something to see in person!
From August 2nd through the 4th, you get even more age brackets thrown into the mix, and the men’s 45+ (Gold & Silver), 40+, 35+, and 30+ divisions all run during this three day span. When you get to this group the competition level is right back up with the best of the best. The 45+ divisions feature intense rivalries, an A and a B bracket, and some absolutely amazing play. As you go a little lower, it only gets better, and by the time you’re watching the 30+ division you’re seeing a ton of former D1 All Americans, local legends, guys who just recently retired from the pros, and plenty of NLL caliber guys looking to play a little late summer field lacrosse. Maybe you’ll cover Gary Gait or Mike Powell, or maybe Regy Thorpe or Gerry Byrne will cover you! Either way it’s amazing lacrosse, and rubbing elbows with players like that is nothing short of incredible, even as they’re trying to remove your elbows from your body.
On the 4th and 5th, you will also see the Open 18+ divisions kick off for both the men and women. There is a Gold and Silver bracket for the men’s teams, and there is Gold & Silver for the women, and to move up you need to win games. It’s an amazing set up with a staggering amount of depth and talent. We are talking about some of the best talent the NCAA currently has to offer, incoming stars, and recent graduates. This is, quite simply, some of the best summer lacrosse on the planet, and there is just so much of it going on at once. It might be overwhelming if the sport of lacrosse weren’t so awesome.
Check out this list of teams, JUST from the Men’s Open A Division and then tell me this isn’t the biggest, most impressive group you’ve ever seen.
Bankers Healthcare Group, Big Red Steelheads (Cornell), Buffalo Soliders Open (WNY), Burning Orange (Syracuse), Dirty Birds, GMH L.C., Graph-Tex Open, Mesa Fresh Lacrosse, Orange Crush, Sailin’ Shoe, Sector SPDRS, Smokey Joe’s Quakers, Team Army Ranger, Team Power-Tek, Team Steak, and The Pepper Boys.
That’s 16 A-level squads right there. While rosters haven’t been posted yet, when they are you will want to check them out! (Do so HERE). And this is ONE division of play. ONE. There are TWENTY such divisions at Placid.
The play is nothing short of electric, creative, and heated. The rivalries are real, and pride is on the line. While the off field scene is equally electric (and a ton of fun) the games are the truest draw for fans and other players, and you will see stuff you’ve never seen before in these contests. It will shock you, and make you want to become a better player. It did that for me the first time I played up in Placid. It will do the same for you!
Entire families will head up for the week. Fathers, mothers, and grandparents will watch the youngest generations of their family play the game we all love, and as the week moves along, the roles will reverse, and the youngest can watch their own family’s older generations play the same game. There is no direct connection through family, time, and our game quite like the one you can see at Lake Placid.
This is not a surprise. After all, the Lake Placid Summit Classic is truly one of a kind.
Here are a couple of the most classic/best team names we’ve seen so far:
Cloudsplitters, Dacks Lax/Love Linda, Black & Blue Jays, Grateful Danes, Wet Bandits, Gray Danes, Olden Flyers, Ye Olde Quakers, Creaky Crimson, Faber College 50’s, Last Call Lacrosse, and The Reapers.
Old and young, everyone comes together at Placid, and if you have a little fun with your uniforms and team name, you’ll fit right in.
Summit Classic grows in 30th year | News, Sports, Jobs

LAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Summit Classic lacrosse tournament has descended on the village for the 30th straight year, and has brought along an estimated 15,000 friends to celebrate.
The Summit Classic is essentially two tournaments over the course of a week: first was the scholastic tournament early in the week, consisting of youth, high school and college-age players, followed by the adult tournament, which includes a 65 and older age group for the first time.
Son of co-founder George Laveille, Kevin, who also serves as one of the tournament directors, said, in addition to the games, there’s a lot to take in during this year’s Summit Classic.
“I’m almost 38, and my whole life has been here in early August, so to get to 30 years and see it maintaining its strong magnet to all these special folks is really awesome,” Kevin Laveille said. “It’s really competitive on the field; and off the field there’s tons of camaraderie. People are coming back to do reunion type things; they’re coming back to see their college buddies from a long time ago.
“The lacrosse community is just kind of small, relatively, and people can gather here and knock a lot of birds out with one stone. Everything just kind of comes together and makes it special.”
Laveille said organizers estimate there are more than 650 teams, and about 15,000 people including players, kids, spouses and fans.
“Some people are here all week, coaching at the beginning and playing at the end,” he said. “We’ve got a 65-and-over division this year. Last year we had a single game, but this year we’ve got five teams in that division, so that’s setting a new bar for everybody.
“On Thursday, we’ll do our Legends event, highlighting three lacrosse legends to us: Roy Simmons Jr., Paul Rose and Phil Kessler, who have all had major impacts here for years. So we’ll celebrate them and some other award winners, including Tri-Lakes youth lacrosse who will be getting Lacrosse All-Stars Grow the Game Award. It’s a tribute to their efforts to get youth here, boys and girls, playing lacrosse.
“(Tri-Lakes has) really become a legit youth lacrosse program.”
On Friday, there will be a World Lacrosse seminar, with the aim of eventually getting the game added to the Olympics. Laveille said in an effort to make that happen, rule changes will be implemented and a demonstration game will take place on Friday.
“It’s a little bit of a format change,” he said. “There will be fewer people on the field, smaller field (and) shot clock really just to make it fit into the Olympics. Right after the seminar, we’re going to have the MLL Legends play on our Legends field here in the new format, so people can watch what plays out and have their opinions on it.”
According to an article on the Summit Lacrosse website, the new format will shorten the game to 8-minute quarters with a running clock, institute a 45-second shot clock and have just six players on the field.

Lake Placid Summit Classic Celebrates 30th Anniversary
Lake Placid Summit Classic Celebrates 30th Anniversary
Mon Aug 5 2019 | Jonathan Sigal | Pro
While going to graduate school in Albany, N. Y., George Leveille had a friend ask if he wanted to go for a hike in the Adirondack Mountains. Right away, he fell in love with the region and became an outdoors enthusiast.
Then in 1990, Leveille traveled to Vail, Colo., for a lacrosse tournament and had a thought: Why can’t we bring this exact format to Lake Placid? So Leveille, father of former Team USA players Kevin and Mike Leveille and a longtime volunteer with US Lacrosse, met with the proper folks upstate and got the ball rolling.
Except the first year they had seven teams, played about a dozen games and there was rain.
“We thought nobody would ever come back, but I was dead wrong,” Leveille said. “Then it just kept growing.”
That it did. The Lake Placid Summit Classic celebrates its 30th anniversary this week. Games start Monday and conclude Sunday. Leveille estimates there are about 6,000 athletes across 250 teams that will come out, spanning all different divisions.
The teams range from a 65-and-over division to about two dozen “girls commits” teams, where high school-aged girls get to compete with their future NCAA teammates. There’s also a strong Native American presence, Leveille said, paying tribute to the game’s tribal origins.
The event, part of Summit Lacrosse Ventures, has come a long way from the early 1990s, when the Sailin’ Shoe lacrosse teams dominated. They were always recognizable for their fuchsia-colored shirts, standing out well above the crowd.
“We wanted to share the region with the lacrosse community and combine this beautiful outdoors environment with the game we love to play,” Leveille said. “We wanted to marry the sport we love with a region we love. That was the vision, to share this experience and destination in our lacrosse community.”
Leveille has done exactly that, with the Lake Placid Summit Classic going somewhat against the grain on the summertime lacrosse circuit. With the growth of club lacrosse, many of those events are oriented around recruiting and showcasing a player for college.
But in Lake Placid, the emphasis tends to lie elsewhere. As Leveille put it, it’s all about enjoying the game in what’s nearly become a “summertime rite of passage. ”
“We’re a destination. We’re just trying to let the game be played in this beautiful space,” Leveille said. “While we do have a strong club presence, we’re less oriented around that and tend to draw the community-based programs or alumni-based groups who know each other and want to come together through lacrosse.”
And with three decades of history come plenty of lacrosse luminaries who have taken to the fields in upstate New York.
The event has a Legends of Placid Lax group that will add former Syracuse men’s head coach Roy Simmons Jr., the late Paul Rose and New England Knights leader Phil Kessler added to its ranks. Past inductees to the Legends group include the Powell brothers, coach Dom Starsia and longtime RPI and Cornell coach Ned Harkness, plus many more.
The only downside, Leveille said, is fewer professional players come out now that the Premier Lacrosse League and Major League Lacrosse are full steam ahead on the men’s side. As for the women’s side, there’s the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League that continues to grow.
“The pro [game] has changed the dynamic because those top players can’t come out to the summer tournaments unless they’re not on a roster,” Leveille said. “So we’ve seen a decline in the big names, but we’ve had some of the legends come through. Almost anyone you can think of, they’ve played up there at one point in time.”
There’s also some innovation at this Lake Placid Summit Classic. The annual MLL Legends Game will experiment with a new discipline of the sport that was put forth by World Lacrosse (formerly the Federation of International Lacrosse) in March. There will be a seminar Friday that includes a question-and-answer session with World Lacrosse CEO Jim Scherr and US Lacrosse CEO and World Lacrosse vice president Steve Stenersen, followed by a live demonstration in the MLL Legends Game.
Notable rules on the docket include 6-on-6 play, shorter games (four 8-minute periods of running clock), a 45-second shot clock, smaller roster sizes (10 per team), no backup rule for shots (possession changes based on team that touches the ball last) and draws only at the beginning of each period and overtime.
While World Lacrosse’s goal with the new discipline is to get lacrosse back into the Olympics, Leveille feels the format also could help grow lacrosse in cities and other communities where access to full-sized fields is hard to come by.
“We’re really excited about this, and I’ve personally been an advocate of the small-field game,” Leveille said. “We’re trying to use our platform to help to promote awareness and conversations of what’s being proposed. We hope the lacrosse community finds some consensus that it can be a good way to grow the game internationally and to help develop players who are already in the full-field format.”
Whatever changes arise, Leveille couldn’t help but reflect on how far the Lake Placid Summit Classic has come in three decades. There was perhaps no better example than a few years ago, when the timespan really hit home.
“We had a grandfather, his son and then the grandson all playing all in the same week,” he said. “That’s one of the things that has been great to see, the continuity. ”
As for 30 more years?
“Man, that’d be great,” Levielle said. “That’s all we could ask for.”
2018 Lake Placid – JustLacrosse Upstate
This year, Lake Placid grew a major branch of its family tree. It was the first year that there was a Womens Masters Division (30+). 7v7 was the name of the game and it took place on a shorter field with college rules. I was lucky enough to get in on the action and play for Laxified, a team started up by Lake Placid legend Lyn Reitenbach. (Side note, Lyn has played in every Lake Placid Tournament, which makes her more of an absolute boss than she already is.)

If you ask me, this years Lake Placid Summit Classic was one of the smoothest-flowing in recent memory. For instance
from Dan Witmer / JustLacrosse UpstateDan Fuller was a good long-stick midfielder on a very good Baldwinsville High School team. He played two years of varsity lacrosse as the Bees had some of their most successful seasons in recent history. He earned Honorable Mention All-League honors this past May, and graduated in June . . . . . . But for two days in Lake Placid last week, Dan experienced something pretty special. He got to play four games in the Mens 18+ Gold division with the Burning Orange team, playing alongside a number of former Syracuse University alums whom he had idolized growing up. Team was sponsored by BHG – Bankers Healthcare Group of Syracuse, and by Johnson Brothers Lumber, Cazenovia.. The team consisted of 15 Section III players: 8 Cazenovia Alum: Ben Lewis, Sam Lewis – Coach, Ben Romagnoli, PJ Brown, Cole Willard, TJ Connellan, Jake Stowell, Jake Lewis
2 Auburn Alum: Alex and Jack Burgmaster
2 Skaneateles Alum: Sam Duggan, Reece Eddy

from the Adirondack Daily EnterpriseSummit does a pretty good job of solving problems before police need to get involved, Dobson said. This is the tournaments third year of having its own people out around Lake Placid to intervene in off-the-field incidents, Dobson said. The tournaments proactive approach involved setting up the Summit Lacrosse Society to instill in players a sense of positive reinforcement under the motto Camaraderie, Competition and Respect.

With apologies to Marc Cohn, and one of my favorite songs . . .
from the Adirondack EnterpriseLAKE PLACID Starting Monday, thousands of athletes and spectators even more than at the Ironman triathlon weekend will come to this village for the Lake Placid Summit Classic lacrosse tournament. With that comes the worry of crimes such as underage drinking, disorderly conduct and the occasional fight. Lake Placid Police Chief Bill Moore said hes noticed that when a major event comes to town, only a small percentage of people start trouble.
from Summit Lacrosse VenturesWe are proud to once again recognize those who have made substantial contributions to the growth and sustainability of Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse Tournament. Our Legends truly represent both the spirit and the substance of Lake Placid Lacrosse. This year, we are excited and proud to announce that Dom Starsia and Team Long Island are our 2018 Legends of Lake Placid Lax inductees.

We want to give credit to the coaches and founders who had a vision, took risks, and shared their love of the game.
from LifeHacker.comDid you know you can have an icon on your iPhone homescreen that will take you right to your favorite lacrosse website? And it’s actually easier to do than positioning them where you want them after you create them. 90,000 Oshi will bring the Cup to the US ice hockey capital
The Gardens and Olympic Arena rinks are adjacent to each other on Elk Street. There are no official games or training during this time, and both stadiums are open to anyone looking to take a break from the summer fun.
So it is in this city of only 1,794 people, which is located in Minnesota, six miles from the Canadian border. It houses the Marvin Windows and Doors window and door company, which employs about two thousand people.
But Warroad is primarily known for its hockey players. The city has even declared itself the hockey capital of the United States.
[See also: Timati, Katya Lel and Ovechkin with Stanley Cup]
Washington Capitals striker TJ Oshi will bring the Stanley Cup here on Tuesday. At one time, he honed his hockey skills here.
“The City Cup is a big deal for us,” says Jay Hardwick, coach of the local high school ice hockey team.- This year Gigi Marvin came here to celebrate the victory at the Olympics (as part of the US women’s team). It was something! But the Stanley Cup hasn’t been here yet. Hockey players from our city won everything in hockey. And now the Stanley Cup will appear here. This is the highest achievement. I can’t even imagine what will happen here. “
Local players have achieved a lot, but 31-year-old Oshi became the first hockey player from Warroud to win the Stanley Cup.
Brothers Christian (Bill, Roger and Dave) grew up here, who became Olympic champions: Bill and Roger at the 1960 Squaw Valley Games, and Dave at the 1980s at Lake Placid.
Marvin climbed to the top step of the Olympic podium this year in South Korea.
There are five people from this city in the US Hockey Hall of Fame: three brothers Christian, Henry Booch, and Cal Marvin, Gigi’s grandfather. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the Creator category.
In the NHL, this city was represented by Dave Christian (1980-1994), Al Hangsleben (1979-1982), Butcha (1972-1976), Chad Erickson (1992), Wyatt Smith (2000-2008), Oshie (2008-present) ) and Brock Nelson (2013-present).

Oshi, who scored 21 (8 + 13) points in 24 playoff games this year, when the Capitals won the NHL main prize for the first time in history, will bring Cup to the Gardens stadium, where everyone can see it. With the Stanley Cup, all of the city’s children’s teams will be photographed, and the local Indian Education Department’s choir will perform a song specially written for the occasion. The cup will be taken around the city and along the lake. At lunchtime, Oshi is going to fly to St. Paul, where he now lives.There he will spend the rest of the day.
The people of Warroad have a lot to be proud of, but Oshi’s arrival with the Stanley Cup will rank first on this remote town’s rich track record.
“This is a very small city. Only 1700 people live here. But four Olympic champions, an Olympic silver winner, a lot of girls who have achieved success have grown up here. About 20 of them played student hockey,” says Gigi Marvin. our teams won regional tournaments.All this suggests that there is a special atmosphere here. My grandfather and his friends started to develop hockey here. It was always possible to ride here for free. If not for their generosity and sponsorship at the first stage, we would never be able to ride for our pleasure. You won’t find that anywhere. ”
Michael Twight, President of the Children’s Hockey Development Program at Warroad, says everyone here is grateful to Cal Marvin and his friends for what he did to make hockey in the city.
Marvin was called here Mr. Hockey …He passed away on September 5, 2004 at the age of 80.
“It all started here with Cal Marvin. Our hockey started with him,” Twight said. “A lot of hockey players from our city have achieved success. All of them say that they have always seen a perspective here, felt supported by the principles that were laid by these people. We managed to build a pyramid – it all starts with children who can train every day. They have the opportunity to ride at any time. Here they can work on their skills 24 hours a day. “

Eads was the team’s coach in 2002 when 15-year-old Oshi joined the team. He transferred from Washington State to take the next step in his hockey education.Oshi’s father was born in Vorroud, Osh’s relatives still live here.
“Hockey is a way of life here,” says Eads. “You could say it’s the most Canadian city this side of the border. I’m talking about hockey. The city lives on this sport. You can always skate here. It’s not about formal training.” Here you can always just play hockey for free. Of course, this city has played a significant role in the career of Osh. There is always an opportunity to work on technique, tactics. And to do it freely, when no one is above your heart.Just work for your own pleasure. “
The ice at the Olympic Arena, where the Gigi Marvin women’s hockey team played and played, will be melted next week. And soon they will be flooded again. I had time. It was Saturday, says Marvin. – I left the ice just to eat when my parents brought me here lunch and dinner. They don’t see anything special in this here, because they love hockey. And here special hockey players grow up.They feel differently on the ice at the expense of the opportunities they have. “
This is what Oshi experienced. He was twice state champion in 2003 and 2005.
Twight, team captain in 2003, believes that the Stanley Cup will open up new opportunities in the city.
“Children are happy when they see Gigi or TJ,” he said. – These are their idols. Our children want to be successful, and it is important for them to know that the people from their city were able to become champions. “
[Latest NHL news on Twitter @NHLrussia]
In 2005, Oshi became the state champion together with Kyle Hardwicke, whose older brother is now gearing up for his seventh season as coach of the Warroud high school team.
“All children dream of wearing our team sweater. Nothing changes in this regard,” says Jay Hardwicke. “When TJ studied here, all the guys looked up to him. I’m sure of that. And now he remains an idol for the local guys. These things are good for them. They grow up in a small town, but they see that TJ won the Stanley Cup, they know that local guys go to the Olympics and win gold there. It will help them understand that they can do well. But there is a certain path that they must go.It was laid before them, and here they are proud of it. I don’t think they are under additional pressure because of this. It’s just that there is such an atmosphere. Warroud atmosphere. It has always been like this. “
And on Tuesday the most important holiday will take place in the city.

Saskatoon () is the largest city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It is located at the bend of the South Saskatchewan River in the central region of the province. It is located along the Trans-Canadian Yellowhead Highway, and has served as the cultural and economic center of central Saskatchewan since its founding in 1882 as a Temperance Colony. 
Since the 2016 Census of 246,376, Saskatoon is the largest city in the province, and the 17th largest metropolitan area in the census in Canada, with a 2016 census of 295,095.As of July 2018, the city of Saskatoon has an estimated population of 278,500.  While Statistics Canada estimated the CMA population for 2019 was 330674. 
Saskatoon is home to the University of Saskatchewan, the Miwasin Valley Authority which protects the South Saskatchewan River and provides the city’s popular riverside parklands, as well as Vanuskevin Heritage Park, a National Historic Site of Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Seeker representing 6000 years of First Nations history.In Korman Parish, Park No. 344, the most populous parish in Saskatchewan, surrounds the city and includes many of its associated events, including Vanuskevin. Saskatoon berry which is native to this region and itself comes from Cree Misâskwatômina . The city has a significant Indigenous population and several urban reserves. The city has nine river crossings and is nicknamed “Prairie Paris” and “City of Bridges”.
Saskatoon’s Historic Districts include Nutana and Riversdale, which were separate cities before being merged with the City of Saskatoon and incorporated as a city in 1906.Nutana, Riversdale, their historic main streets, Broadway Avenue and 20th Street, are as well as downtown and other downtown areas undergoing significant reinvestment and renovation. Sutherland, a railroad town annexed to the city in 1956, located behind the University of the Lands, is now another historic old town.
Name Saskatoon (in Cree: Sâskwatôn, “Saskatoon” or locals: Misâskwatôminihk , lit .: “near the saskatoon berry”, Misâskwatôminiskâhk , “Mounnisi11,” Saskatoon ” y berry “) comes from the inanimate noun Cree Misâskwatômina ” Saskatoon berry “, which refers to the sweet, purple berry that grows in the area.
Saskatoon City Archivist Jeff O’Brien wrote that the traditional history of this name is that it originated from the presence of Saskatoon berries in the area. “There is even an almost certainly apocryphal story that John Lake, having received a handful of these berries and calling their name, immediately exclaimed:“ Rise, Saskatoon – Queen of the North! “
However, he wrote,” the truth seems a little less dramatic. The area has long been known to the local Cree as a good place to stock up on willow wands for arrow shafts.Thus, this place was named “Sask-kva” -tan “- roughly speaking,” the place of felling willows “. 
HistoryBarr Colonists in Saskatoon in 1903. The Saskatoon settlement saw an economic boom as Barr’s traveling colonists camped around the community.
In 1882 Toronto, the Moderate Colonization Society was granted 21 sections of land on the South Saskatchewan River, between what is now Warman and Dundurn. The group’s goal was to avoid the liquor trade in this city and to create a “dry” community in the Prairie area, the province.The following year, settlers, led by Lake John Nilson, arrived at the site of present-day Saskatoon and founded the first permanent settlement. The settlers traveled by rail from Ontario to Elk Jaw and then completed the final leg on a horse-drawn cart, as the railroad to Saskatoon had not yet been built. 
In 1885, the Northwest Uprising affected the tiny community in many ways. Chief Belcap and Charles Trottier walked through a modern campus en route to Louis Riel for the Armed Forces in Batoche, Saskatchewan.After fighting at the Battle of Fish Creek and the Battle of Batoche, wounded Canadian soldiers recuperated at the Marr Residence which is now a historic site. Several people died while leaving and were buried in the Pionerskoye cemetery next to the exhibition complex.
A city charter on the west bank of the river was received in 1903 (Nutana became a village that year). In 1906, Saskatoon became a city of 4,500, which included the communities of Saskatoon, Riversdale, and Nutana. In 1955, Montgomery Place and in 1956 the neighboring town of Sutherland, we were annexed by the fast-growing city of Saskatoon. 
Saskatoon lies on a long belt of rich potash black soil in middle southern Saskatchewan and is located in the Aspen Biome Park. The lack of surrounding mountainous terrain gives the city a relatively flat grid, although the city does stretch over several hills and several valleys. The lowest point in the city is a river, while the highest point is contested between the Sutherland suburb in the east and the Silverwood River Heights districts in the north of the city.Saskatoon, in cross-section from west to east, has a general decrease in altitude towards the river, and on the east bank of the river, the terrain is mostly flat until it begins to decrease outside the city limits. again on top.
Saskatoon is divided into the east and west sides of the South Saskatchewan River. It is then subdivided into Suburban Development Zones (SDA), which are made up of neighborhoods.  Street addresses are divided into north and south (for avenues aligned in these directions) and similar east and west (for streets aligned in these directions).To the west of the river, the North / South address demarcation line runs along 22nd Street, while the east and west are separated by Idilville Drive (north of 20th Street) and Avenue A (south of 20th). On the east side, Lorne Avenue separates east and west, and Aird Street is the border between north and south, with the exception of the Sutherland community, which has a separate east / west demarcation with Central Avenue as the border (however, there is no separate north-south division / south). As a result of the unusual demarcation on the east side, only a few streets are actually designated “north” or “west”.
A second important water feature besides the river is the Hudson Bay Cave, a remnant of a glacial reservoir that once dominated the northern part of the city. Industrial development has drained most of the marshes, but a large remnant has survived along Avenue C as part of RCAF Memorial Park, while others remained untouched in the Hudson Bay Industrial Zone.
Pike Lake and Blackstrap Provincial Parks are 40 km (25 mi) south of the city. Blackstrap Park is often used for school trips.Batoche is located 90 km (56 mi) north of the city.
Saskatoon experiences a cold semi-arid climate (Köppen: BSk ) alongside a humid continental climate ( Dfb ), with generally warm summers and long cold winters. Climate data from University of Saskatchewan, downtown area meets semi-arid criteria. This is due to slightly higher average annual temperatures and slightly lower average annual rainfall than at the airport on the northwestern outskirts of the city.
The city has four different seasons, frost resistance zone 3b.  Saskatoon has a dry climate and averages 340.4 mm (13.40 in) of rain per year, with summer being the wettest season. As a result, Saskatoon is sunnier than the Canadian average, with an average of 2,268 hours of bright sunshine per year. Temperature extremes are usually accompanied by below average humidity levels. Thunderstorms are common during the summer months and can be severe with heavy rain, hail, high winds, strong lightning and, on rare occasions, tornadoes.The frost-free growing season lasts from May 21 to September 15.  but due to the fact that Saskatoon is located in the north, severe frosts only happened on June 14th.  and again in August. The average daily high temperature peaks at 25.8 ° C (78.4 ° F) from July 31 to August 8.  
“2007 Blizzard” Many residents described it as the worst they had seen and paralyzed the city with its low visibility, extreme cold and lots of snow.  Winds exceeded 90 km / h (56 mph) and an estimated 25 cm (9.8 inches) of snow fell per day.  Many residents of the area took refuge overnight in workplaces, shopping malls, hospitals and the university.
The highest temperature ever recorded in Saskatoon was 41.5 ° C (107 ° F) on June 6, 1988.  The lowest temperature ever recorded was -50.0 ° C (-58 ° F) on February 1, 1893.

The above land area figure was provided by the City of Saskatoon in January 2006 and takes into account recent annexations up to this point.

The Saskatoon area was inhabited long before any permanent settlement was established and archaeological work continues.Vanuskevin Heritage Park and other locations testify. Canadian First Nations populations are becoming increasingly urbanized, and nowhere is this more pronounced than in Saskatoon, where the First Nations population increased 382% from 1981 to 2001;  however, part of this increase, perhaps half, is believed to be due to the fact that more people identify as Aboriginal in the census rather than migration or fertility. Saskatoon has the second largest percentage of the indigenous population of any major Canadian city at almost 9%.  10% behind Winnipeg and 8% behind Regina; in certain areas, such as Pleasant Hill, this percentage is over 40%.

MLL uses normal lacrosse rules and regulations with a few exceptions such as the 16-yard two-point line and 60-second shot clock.
The regular season started in 2001 with 6 teams at MLL and planned to expand to 19 teams.
MLL currently has 8 teams. These are Annapolis, Boston, Columbus, Charlotte, Denver, New York, Palm Beach County and Rochester.
International Lacrosse Federation
There were two separate governing bodies for the male and female versions of the sport, and this was one of the obstacles to international development. The men’s lacrosse is regulated by the ILF and the women’s version is IFWLA.
In August 2008, after four years of negotiations, the two bodies merged into one and the same body, the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) was created. All championships previously held by the ILF and IFWLA have been transferred to the FIL.
The 2014 World Lacrosse Championships was held by the FIL in Denver, USA. The World Lacrosse Championship is held every four years and is funded by the FIL itself. However, only eight countries have competed so far – Canada, Iroquois citizens and the United States are in the top three places in these competitions.
European Lacrosse Federation
The next largest international competition is the European Lacrosse Championship of the European Lacrosse Federation (ELF), held for both men’s and women’s teams.Since 1995 ELF has been hosting all European Championships.
Until 2001, they held these championships every year, and then changed the format every four years between the world championships.
Until 2004, only 7 countries participated in the EIL, but since then a record number of countries have participated with 12 men’s teams and 6 women’s teams, making it the largest international lacrosse competition of the year.
In the 2012 ELF Championship, England defeated Ireland with Sweden in third place.In the 2014 championships, 32 countries participated in the ELF championships.
Lacrosse has always been played mostly in Canada and the United States. Although there weren’t many lacrosse communities, they are certainly devoted. Recently, however, lacrosse has thrived internationally with teams set up primarily in Europe and East Asia.
Lacrosse, which has not been an official Olympic sport since 1908, is the pinnacle of the international lacrosse competition, consisting of the world championships held every four years, which began in 1968.The championships began as a four-team invitational tournament sponsored by the International Lacrosse Federation.
Until 1986, only four countries contested the World Lacrosse Championship: the USA, Canada, England and Australia. Scotland and Wales competed in the women’s version. They are now held at many levels such as older men, older women, men under 19, women under 19, etc.
Following the expansion of the sport internationally, the 2006 Men’s World Cup was filled with 21 countries and Iroquois nationals representing the six nations of the Iroquois Confederation.It is the only Native American team (one of the first nations) to compete internationally.
In 2003, the first World Indoor Lacrosse Championship (WILC) was hosted by six countries at four different venues in Ontario.
