2024 Tryout Runs

With a 2023 that saw several new records for the Regals, the 2024 Junior B Lacrosse season is quickly approaching and so does the teams focus.

The Guelph Jr. B Regals will kick off their 2024 Tryout Runs February 25 at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in Oakville. The first four runs will be joint runs with the Oakville Buzz, Guelph’s affiliate in Junior A, before breaking off into invitational runs later in March.

2024 CAMP DATES:

Sunday, February 25 – 3:00 – 4:30 PM – TRAC (Oakville)

Sunday, March 3 – 6:00 – 7:30 PM – TRAC

Sunday, March 10 –  6:00 – 7:30 PM – TRAC

Sunday, March 17 – 6:00 – 7:30 PM – TRAC

Sunday, March 24 – 5:00 – 7:00 PM  – Queensmount Arena (Kitchener)

There is a cost of $10 per run that can be paid in-person prior to the sessions, which are open to anyone (see below whether a Permission letter is needed).

It is important to know that all players must register with the OLA before stepping on the floor (free to register). This can be done the same way as previous years at https://www.sportzsoft.com/regApp/Login?OrgId=6860 .

Once logged in, simply select the Junior “B” tab and Guelph when registering. Please note that if you are underage and still a Minor U17, you will not be able to register this way and will instead just need to be registered at Minor to participate in these runs. 

After these Camp dates and games, the club will be selecting its roster and continue practicing leading up to the season opener on April 21.

If you are not a resident of Guelph and were not signed to the Jr. B Regals in 2023, you will need a Permission to Run letter from your home centre.

Looking to build off a strong 2023 campaign, the Regals are expecting another very competitive camp with the goal of winning a championship this season.

For any questions, players are encouraged to reach out to Assistant General Manager Thomas Miller or General Manager Matt Pelkey.

2023 Regular Season Schedule Announced

Victoria Road Arena

Junior “B” Lacrosse in Guelph is back for another season!

The Guelph Jr. B Regals are back for its 32nd year in the Ontario Junior “B” Lacrosse League.

With a strong core of returning players, Guelph is looking to deal some damage in the OJBLL in 2023.

The Regals will kick off the regular season campaign at home against the Six Nations Rebels on Saturday, April 22 at 3 PM. The team won’t have to wait long to hit the road as they head to Welland April 23 for a game against the Generals at 2 PM.

5 of their first 7 games will be away from Victoria Road Arena, but 6 of its final 9 games will be on home floor.

Some notable home matchups include Sunday, April 30, when the 2022 OJBLL Western Conference Champion Windsor Clippers make their only trip of the regular season to Guelph. Longtime-rival Elora will be at Victoria Road Arena on Wednesday, May 31, while Guelph will finish off the regular season against the team who knocked them out of the playoffs last year when St. Catharines heads to the Royal City on Monday, June 19.

The full 2023 schedule can be found here.

In 2022, Guelph finished with a 13-7 record, but were ousted in the first round of the OJBLL playoffs. The Regals were defeated by the St. Catharines Athletics 3-2 in a best-of-5 series in which 4 of the 5 games were decided by one goal.

Single game tickets can be purchased at the gate on game day for $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Admission is free to all children under the age of 5 as well as members of the Guelph Minor Lacrosse Association who wear their team jerseys to the game.

Season passes are available for purchase at the front gate. A season pass ($85 for adults, $40 for students/seniors) gets you into all 10 regular season home games.
