History

1887 team photo

The Athletics Lacrosse club was established in 1877 making it one of the oldest sporting traditions in the country.  The Athletics have won Minto Cups in 1947,1950,1990,1991,2001 and the last one in 2003. Each of these Championship teams have brought great civic pride to St. Catharines. When the club goes on a deep Minto Cup run the community really gets behind the team and an electrifying atmosphere is created. Click here to learn more about the Minto Cup

The Athletics also use to have a Senior team who won 5 Mann Cups in 1938,1940,1941,1944, and in 1946. When these teams would win a championship the City would literally throw them a parade. Click here to learn more about the Mann Cup.
