Carson Law named the Official Law Partner of the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre and Oakville Rock lacrosse team

Carson Law is very excited to announce that we have become the Official Law Partner of the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) as well as the Oakville Rock lacrosse team.

The TRAC is a beautiful 80,000 square foot, climate-controlled sports facility and event centre located on Invicta Drive in Oakville, Ontario.  Though the facility was primarily designed for use as the National Lacrosse League (NLL) Toronto Rock's practice facility, it also accommodates many other sports such as ball-hockey, rugby, football, soccer, and baseball.  The TRAC is responsible for running popular youth lacrosse development camps and leagues.

The Oakville Rock is a men's Senior "A" box lacrosse team that plays in the 6-team Major Series Lacrosse (MSL) league within the Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA).  This is one of the highest levels of lacrosse available in Ontario, second only to the NLL, as most of the players in the league currently play or have played at the professional level. The Oakville Rock's 2017 season is currently underway.  Contact us to see how you could obtain a complimentary season's pass for home games.

Lacrosse is becoming a popular sport in the Golden Horseshoe area and Carson Law is proud to be supporting its growth at the grassroots level.
