Membership of Cobham Lacrosse Club
Please read this page carefully prior to submitting a membership enquiry
Cobham lacrosse has two categories of membership: Juniors and Seniors and a Sport for All selection policy.
Juniors: U9 - U15
Cobham Lacrosse offers both Mini-Field Lacrosse and Field Lacrosse. Mini-Field Lacrosse is a non-contact version of lacrosse, where players are introduced to field sticks and playing with a hard ball. This allows girls to develop their field skills earlier, as they do in the US.
Those under the age of 11 (Years 4 - 6) will start in Mini-Field Lacrosse. Those aged 11+ (Years 7 -10) will start in Field Lacrosse. All ages are required to wear gum shields.The junior league ends at U15, when girls move up to our Senior section to play for the mixed age group First Team - as they do in most school systems.
Cobham First Team (Year 11+) provides the pathway for juniors to both the senior game and to coaching and umpiring opportunities. The junior league ends at U15 and therefore our First Team play in the senior league. This means that the First Team is largely comprised of players aged 15 - 18 (Years 11 - 13) who have moved up from the Junior section, although we welcome players of any age.
We are currently full in U15, U14 and U13. We have some spaces in all other age groups.
Waiting lists: If you complete the membership form (please read 'How to join' below first), we will reply to confirm either that we have a place or that you have been placed on the waiting list, which is ordered by the date and time on the form submitted. Our annual renewals process takes place in June 2017. Once that is complete, we will know how many places we have for next season (2017/18) and will then be in touch to offer places to those on our waiting lists.
Fees for the 2016/17 season are as follows:
£25 one-off new members’ fee plus:
*First Team matches will be available on a 'pay and play basis' of £5 per match for 2016/17, plus a £10 membership fee to join. This is not available for Juniors.
Due to the increasing number of players joining us mid-season, we have introduced a sliding scale of membership fees, as set out below. The half term dates are set out here and the fee amount will apply to those joining at any time during the periods shown.
Once you have submitted a membership enquiry, we will confirm the amount of fees payable.
How to join
If you would like to make a joining enquiry, please complete the Membership Enquiry Form. We aim to respond to all membership enquiries within 2 working days, although response times may be longer during the school holidays (the Club is run entirely by parent volunteers). Once you have submitted the form, you will receive an automatic reply confirming receipt of your enquiry and further contact details.
Please take care to complete the DATE OF BIRTH field in the correct format, so we can see what age group you are interested in. Forms submitted with the incorrect format show this field as blank. The name on the form should be that of the prospective member. Junior members can add a parent name at the bottom of the form.
If you have any PROBLEMS completing the Membership Enquiry Form, please note that certain fields have 'pop up' style boxes. You may need to allow pop ups for our site in order to edit these fields. Or try completing the form on a different browser or computer. If that does not resolve the problem, please contact the Membership Secretary here.
