The Toronto Beaches Junior A lacrosse team opens up its Ontario Junior A Lacrosse League (OJALL) season this week.
Coached by Glenn Clark, the team plays its first two games on the road (in Kitchener-Waterloo on May 16 and in Whitby on May 21) before heading to Ted Reeve Arena for their home opener on Thursday, May 23 at 8 p.m. against Whitby.
There are 12 teams in the OJALL loop this year, and they will all be competing for a chance to win the coveted Minto Cup which is awarded to the Canadian Junior A lacrosse champs.
