First Team training information
First Team training times for 2016/17 will be advised to members by email. See our Membership page for details of age groups playing in this team. All school aged members are welcome to join junior training on Saturdays.
Lacrosse career development
Duke of Edinburgh Awards and GCSE in Physical Education
We are able to provide volunteering opportunities for Duke of Edinburgh Awards (at Saturday training or helping coach at matches) and assist with GCSE Physical Education in areas such as performance evaluation, skills development and organising abilities. If your daughter is undertaking or considering either of these (or something similar), please do get in touch and we would be delighted to help.
Coaching and Umpiring Qualifications
We are able to organise for the girls to take both umpiring and coaching qualifications. This is an excellent way of helping them improve their game but also means that they are able to work in the summer holidays at a wide selection of lacrosse camps as they get older. These additional qualifications will help build their CVs and provide them with a pathway to fun and exciting work opportunities. We will send out details of these courses as they arise but if you have a strong interest already, please do let us know.
As a new initiative, we are going to provide information to members on universities that have a focus on playing lacrosse. The British Universities and Colleges Sports League (BUCS) for Women’s Lacrosse shows league positions by university. Durham and Newcastle University have been awarded ‘High Performing University’ status by the English Lacrosse Association, the first two universities to be given this status. We will keep you informed of any new developments in this area and hope to provide details of players selected for the UK national teams by university in due course.
The team is entered into the South East League Division One. League matches will be played on Sunday mornings and home fixtures will be played on our pitch on the Covenham Grounds.
