Louis Delisle has been involved in minor lacrosse since 1955 and was inducted into the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2014. Delisle won two Quebec Junior Championships in 1966 and 1967. His senior career spanned from 1968 to 1988, with the Caughnawaga Indians and the Kahnawake Mohawks, playing in 5 President Cups and winning a Silver Medal in 1969. His accomplishments were noted in 1970 when he won the ‘Thorpe-Longboat Award’ for outstanding lacrosse and hockey achievement.

Delisle’s record as a Coach and Builder is equally impressive. He was a founding member of both the Caughnawaga Minor Lacrosse Association and the Caughnawaga Indians Senior Team. These and other contributions led to him receiving the ‘Quebec Lacrosse Volunteer of the Decade Award’ for the 1970s. Delisle was ‘Quebec Coach of the Year’ in 1979.

Delisle has coached in every decade since the 1960s and continues to coach high school lacrosse today, in addition to running local clinics. He played a major role in the 150th Anniversary of Lacrosse Celebration, organizing the Kahnawake community for the historical re-enactments of the game.
