Training Sessions

Saturday training takes place at the Covenham Grounds, situated behind the Fairmile Inn on Portsmouth Road.

Fixtures

The U13s and U15s play in the ELA South League. These matches are played on Sundays at home and away at other lacrosse clubs.  The matches are organised by team managers and are run very much on a first come basis. We aim to give everyone who wants to play game time.

We also organise friendly fixtures, these may be on a Saturday morning or Sunday.  One of our coaches will be available to coach the girls at all matches. See our Sport for All selection policy.

Training Times

Mini-Field Lacrosse

Saturday 2:00pm to 3:30pm

These sessions are for primary school girls (Years 4 - 6) who want to learn lacrosse and have fun. Training is run in small groups and we offer a seamless transition from Mini-Field (non-contact, no checking, no goalies) to Field Lacrosse at the end of Year 6. Gum shields are required. Studded boots are not required and sticks can be provided.

Junior Field Lacrosse

Saturday 2:00pm to 3:30pm

These sessions are for senior school girls (Year 7+). Like most schools, beginners in Year 7 and above will start in Field Lacrosse. Gum shields and studded boots are mandatory. You may want to buy your own stick, although we can provide these initially.

Road Crossing Times

Girls are escorted by the coaches over to the Covenham grounds for Saturday training.  Please park in Munro House and meet in front of the Club House promptly at 1.45pm. Any girls arriving after this time must be escorted across by a parent or guardian.  They are not allowed to cross the road on their own. We will deliver the girls back to the Club House at 3.45pm. Please remember that pick up and drop off is not allowed at the Covenham Grounds.

 

Training Kit

We request that girls either wear Cobham kit or neutral training kit (and not school kit) for training sessions.  This avoids visual school divisions and helps the girls integrate into the club.  The exception to this is when girls come directly to training from a school match, although please at least bring a neutral top or sweatshirt to change into.  Suitable waterproof jackets and warm clothing are required in the winter.  All girls should bring a drink with them. For more information see our Kit page.
