Since 2006, we have been working with many of Ontario’s top lacrosse players to help them get to the NCAA. No other club program in Canada has the proven track record of success that we do. Year after year, we consistently help more kids secure scholarships than any other club program in Canada. Often, our results are more than all other Ontario club programs combined. With nearly 300 recruits since 2006, our results are undeniable. If you are considering another club program, ask them for a list of commits, you are investing your time, money and travel, you want to ensure the end goal aligns with your son or daughters.
The EDGE brand has established itself as teams of elite Ontario students-athletes. Coaches and recruiters from NCAA programs follow and evaluate players from EDGE teams more than any other Canadian club program. Coaches have come to value the training and coaching we provide our members and consistently are looking for EDGE players for their programs.
With the success of Canadian lacrosse players in the NCAA, every NCAA program is looking to add a Canadian lacrosse player to their team.

Pacific Edge Lacrosse Association Gets Girls Playing the Game in LA

This article appears in the May/June edition part of a series on community-based lacrosse leagues that are thriving despite the growing trend toward privatization in youth sports. Don’t get the mag? Join US Lacrosse to start your subscription.
Stephen Fossati developed his love for lacrosse in the hotbed of New Jersey in the late 1970s. He honed his craft at Manhattanville College, where he played as a goalie and put up 897 career saves — a mark that stands among the top totals in NCAA history.
Fossati’s lacrosse journey started in an area with a rich lacrosse history. But decades ago, he made the choice to move to Los Angeles, leaving behind the lacrosse roots founded on the East Coast.
Now a father to Sophia, a lacrosse player herself, Fossati is trying to give back to the Los Angeles area. It’s an area still developing its foothold in the lacrosse sphere, but Fossati is determined to give girls in the area the same chance he had to love the game of lacrosse.
Fossati founded Santa Monica Vikings Youth Lacrosse in 2008. Despite being just 11 years old, it is one of the most developed youth lacrosse programs in L.A. The community lacrosse organization launched with a group of girls just hoping to find space to play lacrosse.
“I’d call one of the other people I knew that had a couple of players and I’d say, ‘Hey, I have a field this Saturday. If you have enough girls, we can get together for a game,’” Fossati said. “We’d get together and have a 6-on-6. That wasn’t terribly effective, so we acted on the suggestion of one of those people who said we should start a league. ”
Fossati launched the Pacific Edge Lacrosse Association in 2015 and pulled in different community organizations from around the South Bay area, which includes Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Long Beach and Palos Verdes.
PELA started with 70 girls across multiple age groups, all compiled into three teams that competed against one another when they could find field space. Now, PELA boasts more than 600 girls’ lacrosse players on 18 middle school teams, 12 elementary school teams and nine kindergarten-second grade teams.
For Fossati, the growth of his program is a testament to the budding lacrosse movement in Los Angeles.
“The idea originally was that if we build a league, they’ll come,” he said. “Lo and behold, the programs that were there at the start of the league attracted more girls into their program who said, ‘Hey, I want to try this thing called lacrosse.’ As much as PELA is about lacrosse, growing the game is more about being part of that community and what those teams can do for those kids. The community-based program is changing their outlook and their understanding of what they can do. That’s remarkable. That’s why we do it.”

American Lacrosse Conference
American Lacrosse Conference ( ALC ) was a women’s lacrosse-only college athletic conference whose members competed in the division-level National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). All ALC members throughout its history have been located in the eastern half of the United States. The conference was founded in 2001 ahead of the 2002 NCAA lacrosse season with seven participants; nine schools have been members at one time or another throughout its history.
In 2009-2010, two more Southeastern Conference universities joined the ALC: South Carolina and Florida. The South Carolina program has been delayed due to a lack of a start timetable for the game. In 2011, it was announced that the conference would add Michigan as a seventh member.The Wolverines began the NCAA competition in 2013-2014 after the program moved from club to university status.
Beginning in the 2015 season, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the Northwest joined the states of Maryland and Rutgers in the new Big Ten women’s lacrosse league, and the Johns Hopkins women’s lacrosse team became independent. In April 2014, it was announced that the two remaining programs, Florida and Vanderbilt, would join the Big East Conference as affiliate members in 2015, leaving the 2014 season as the last season in the history of the American Lacrosse Conference.
In its last season, ALC had seven members in the eastern United States:
Schools that left ALC prior to 2014 include Davidson College in Davidson, North Carolina and Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Davidson later moved on to the National Lacrosse Conference, later became an associate member of the Big South Conference and now hosts his women’s lacrosse team alongside most of his other sports at the Atlantic 10.Ohio University pulled out of the ALC when the OU Athletics Department decided to abandon several athletic programs, including women’s lacrosse in January 2007.
The years shown on this scale refer to lacrosse seasons. Since NCAA lacrosse is a spring sport for both men and women, the year of joining is the calendar year leading up to the first season.

Why does Lithuania need a radioactive burial ground on the border with Belarus?
The Lithuanian authorities, which for a long time have been waging a senseless and merciless struggle with the Belarusian nuclear power plant, do not like to talk about their own project for the construction of a radioactive waste repository, which is planned to be located near the border with our country.
It is noteworthy that in Lithuania itself such plans raise serious concerns of society and environmentalists, rumors are spread that the repository will store not only waste generated during the decommissioning of the Ignalina NPP (INPP), but also radioactive waste from other countries The European Union.And such a formulation of the question, in principle, contradicts the national legislation of Lithuania, in particular the Law on Nuclear Energy, which directly prohibits the import of radioactive waste from the territory of other states.
In general, the history of the construction of the repository in Lithuania has been going on for quite a long time and is directly related to the vicissitudes of the closure of the Ignalina NPP. The fact is that at one time the “Soviet occupiers” built a nuclear power plant for the needs of the Republic of Lithuania with two power units of 1250 MW each, which at that time were the most powerful in the world.
In the process of joining the European Union, the proud and independent Baltic state was given a condition to close the Ignalina nuclear power plant, since the EU energy market has long been divided and additional competitors in the form of Lithuania are not needed there. Thus, Vilnius has become a net importer from an exporter of electricity, which, however, is an internal affair of the Lithuanian side.
The problem of INPP decommissioning is much more significant for Belarus, since this process will last until 2038 and will require the construction of a surface repository for storing 70 thousand cubic meters of radioactive waste packed in concrete containers.According to available data, the dubious object will be located just four kilometers from the border with the Republic of Belarus, which in itself causes a certain degree of caution.
At the same time, the authorities of the Latvian city of Daugavpils, which is located 30 kilometers from the construction site of the burial ground, also express serious concern over the Lithuanian plans. Back in 2019, the leadership of the Daugavpils Duma sent an official appeal to the Ministry of Environment and Regional Development of Latvia with a request to protect the interests of residents at the border.
The mayor of Daugavpils city Andrey Elksninsh publicly criticizes the local regional authorities and central government bodies: “We, the city government, are against the construction of a burial ground in Ignalina, and the region is silent. , and they took water into their mouths, nothing happens there. Residents are worried, they turn to us, the issue must be resolved. ”
The question needs to be resolved
It is obvious that “the issue must be resolved” not only for Latvians, but also for Belarusians, since our border area is in an even more vulnerable position.The start of operation of the repository is planned for 2023-2024, however, until now, the Lithuanian authorities have not provided an intelligible answer to either their society or neighboring countries regarding the safety of this project, the nature of the waste to be buried, and have not familiarized themselves with the relevant technical documentation.
Not to mention the fact that in this case trilateral intercountry consultations should be held with the participation of Belarus, Lithuania and Latvia, and an inspection of the facility by IAEA specialists should be organized.
The problem is really serious, and it is necessary to draw the attention of the international community to this issue. Belarus, through its own channels, as well as through allies in the person of the Russian Federation and other countries, needs to bring the topic of a nuclear burial ground in Lithuania to the UN and OSCE sites, contact the leadership of the European Union, which finances this project.
It is necessary to obtain intelligible explanations from the official Vilnius, compliance with the safety rules adopted during the construction of objects of this kind, access of Belarusian specialists to project documentation.Not to mention the fact that the very idea of building a burial ground for radioactive waste on the border of the three states looks like a petty dirty trick on the neighbors from the Lithuanian government, which, incidentally, has not surprised anyone for a long time.
