"We have reached out to our venues and have been able to confirm dates, of course these dates are tentative, but we need to plan ahead with the anticipation that by mid-summer we will be able to resume the activities that we are accustomed to, which includes playing the game of lacrosse. If we are still under quarantine then we will continue to make to necessary adjustments to finish the 2020 season before we move forward to the 2021 campaign."
ALL VP of Media and Public Relations Lance Winn explained, "This pandemic has not only changed the global sports landscape it has impacted our daily lives. We are not sure what the new normal will look like, but the ALL is committed to assuring the health and safety of our coaches, players and fans. This is our top priority.
