2024 Ontario NativE

Lacrosse Invitational

Children’s arena – OSHAWA, ON
APRIL 26 – April 28


The Ontario Native Lacrosse Invitational (ONLI) will bring teams together from across Ontario to compete in a friendly, yet competitive invitational skills session with mini exhibition games. Youth ages 8 -19 will travel with their teams and family members to compete and have fun. This will be the second ONLI hosted by ISWO, building on similar provincial tournaments such as ONVI and ONBI. The goal of hosting ONLI is to build confidence, create friendships on and off the court, and strengthen community, while creating opportunities for Indigenous youth to participate in competitive sport with their peers. The ONLI will act as an identifier for participation in the 2026 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG).
