At the GSLA, we understand that after registration personal circumstances may change and participation in the lacrosse season may not be possible. While we’d love nothing more than for you to participate, the GSLA remains flexible to allow for a reasonable period of time following registration for a registration to be withdrawn, while still safeguarding the long-term financial stability of the GSLA.

Registration refund requests are addressed by program as follows:

The OLA Fees are a portion of your registration fee provided directly to the Ontario Lacrosse Association. This $35 fee covers several items, including OLA Insurance, OLA Magazine, Registration Software and the OLA Registrar. The GSLA has no ability to negotiate these fees nor the ability to reimburse them. There is also a $15 administration fee at the club level.

Extenuating Circumstances

The above notwithstanding, in the event of special or extenuating circumstances requests for refunds will be reviewed at the discretion of the GSLA President. Supporting documentation may be requested.

Fundraising & Sponsorship On an individual team basis, teams may attempt to raise funds to assist the team in covering the costs associated with the season. The GSLA is not responsible for any monies paid to a team, team coach or team official individually, through sponsorship and/or fundraising efforts and shall not entertain requests for any such refunds.

Making a Request

All refund requests can be submitted to the GSLA Registrar via email ( Please allow 4-6 weeks for refunds to be processed. All refunds will be issued either by refunding credit card or via cheque which must be made payable to the parent / guardian of the applicable participant. No refunds will be issued in the event the participant borrowed equipment belonging to GSLA until it is returned in acceptable condition.

If you received a free stick during your registration and request a refund, you will receive your fee minus $70 (OLA fees, administration fees and the cost of the stick).
