WESTERN CANADIAN JUNIOR B CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE BACK AFTER 26 YEAR HIATUS

March 14, 2022 – We are excited to announce that the Western Canadian Junior B Championships are coming back after a hiatus of 26 years when it was last won by the Richmond Roadrunners in 1995. Initially played for in 1968 when Vancouver Cablevision won the event.

The Western Canadian Junior B Championships is named the MacDonald Cup after long time BC Junior B Commissioner Fraser MacDonald, who spent over 3 decades as a volunteer and advocate for Junior B Lacrosse in British Columbia.   The renamed championship MacDonald Cup will bring together 8 teams from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba from any Junior B leagues not competing for the National Founders Cup Championships. Both the North and the South Division Champions from Alberta will qualify to attending the Championship.

This event will be held at the Port Coquitlam Community Center from August 22-28, 2022. The active planning committee has members from all 4 provinces and is looking for volunteers and sponsors to make this a great event.
