Reception Banner.jpg

A private function to honour all of those who helped create the celebration and build the sport over the years, with invited guests from all levels of government and the global lacrosse community helped us celebrate the historic milestone.

Sponsor:             Cardinal Capital Management Inc.

The reception will be held over the weekend at the Club Sportif MAA – the new name for the original Montreal Amateur Athletic Club.

In the early 1870’s it was the home of the Montreal Lacrosse Club. The players on the team would change into their uniforms there and then jog up Peel Street to McGill’s Lower Field to meet one of a number of visiting clubs from the era. They might play the Kahnawake Lacrosse Club, the Montreal Shamrocks, the St. Regis Club from Akwesasne, or even the Toronto Lacrosse Club, among others. It is fitting for the building to serve as the site of the Official Reception of the Celebration Weekend!
