The Minto Cup 2017 is coming to a close.  Don’t miss out on what could be the last game of the tournament!Minto Cup 2017

What is the Minto Cup?

Every year, for over 50 years, the best Junior A teams from Canada battle for the Minto Cup. Junior ages in Canada are 16-21 with call-ups being the only exception. These teams are young, fit and want to prove themselves as rising lacrosse stars. I bet some of these teams could run with Senior A or B.

Who’s involved in the Minto Cup 2017?

Traditionally, the Minto Cup was only between the champions of British Columbia and Ontario. Alberta is now in the mix which is great for the sport.  

  • The host province sends two teams.
  • The Minto Cup 2017 is hosted by the city of Brampton, Ontario.
  • The Six Nation Arrows and the Mimico Mountaineers are representing Ontario.
  • The Coquitlam Adanacs from British Columbia 
  • Okotoks Raiders from Alberta.

How does it work?

The tournament itself last about two weeks. It begins with a round robin in between the four teams. Winner of the round robin goes straight to the Minto Cup 2017 final. The second and third place team fight in an elimination game for a ticket to the final. The Minto Cup final is a best of 5 game series.
