2023 Ontario Native

Lacrosse Invitational

March 31 – April 2


The Ontario Native Lacrosse Invitational (ONLI) will bring teams together from across Ontario to compete in a friendly, yet competitive invitational tournament. Youth ages 13-19 will travel with their teams and family members to compete and have fun. This will be the first 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 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG).

Registration and competition format

Athletes will be drafted to their teams for the weekend, on Friday, March 31st during the Athlete Combine, where we will be hosting a skills session/skills competition.

Players must register individually, as all players will be assigned to teams for the weekend on Friday, March 31. To register, players (or their legal guardians), must create an account and submit the required information, including emergency contact information, health information and sign-off on waivers. Parental/guardian permission is required for youth under the age of 18.

Registration fees are as follows:

  • Individual Athlete Registration Fee – $40.00 (CAD, inclusive of taxes). Athletes will receive a swag package as part of their registration.

Payment options include:

  • Online payment by a credit card; or
  • Payment by e-transfer (detailed instructions and prompts are included in the registration system).
