The Kitchener-Waterloo Kodiaks were a Senior "A" box lacrosse team from Waterloo, Ontario. The Kodiaks played in the Eastern Division of the Major Series Lacrosse Senior "A" Lacrosse League where they competed in a 20 game regular season (10 at home) from May through July and playoffs beginning in August and ending with the Mann Cup in September. The Kodiaks played their home games at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex, a multi-purpose recreational complex located in Waterloo, Ontario.

HistoryEdit

The Kodiaks competed in the OLA Senior B League starting in 2003. However, on March 12, 2006, the Ontario Lacrosse Association approved the sale of the St. Catharines Athletics franchise to the Kodiaks and the subsequent promotion to the Sr. A loop for the 2007 season.[1] After years of declining support and attendance for the team, owner Al Orth sold the team to a group of investors from Cobourg, Ontario.[2] The Kodiaks last season in Kitchener-Waterloo was the 2015 season with the team moving to Cobourg for the 2016 season.
