We are delighted that Sophie Allan is joining us as a Senior Coach for this season.
Sophie Allan Bio
I am currently studying Sports and Social Science at the University of Bath and have just finished my Second year and am about to begin my placement year in London. During my placement year, I will be working for an organisation called Merton School Sports Partnerships (MSSP) as well as coaching for Cobham Lacrosse Club.
I began playing lacrosse as a goalkeeper at Putney High School at the age of 11, where I was captain for a number of years as well as being the captain for lacrosse in my final year for the school. During my time at Putney I played for Surrey and South East at U15 and U18 level. As well as this, at the age of 13, I began my England lacrosse pathway. Through this, I have played for the U19 England team, as well as captained the England U19 team in 2013 at the Home Internationals. The following year I then played for the Senior England team at the Home Internationals and continue to participate in the England Senior squad.
I have a Level 1 and Level 2 Lacrosse Coaching certificate and from this have gained 3 years of lacrosse coaching at ‘Chiswick Lacrosse Camp’ and at Heathfield School, Ascot for Elite Sports Camps. As well as this, during my time at Putney High, I would help coach the younger years.
I am really looking forward to playing and coaching at Cobham Lacrosse Club this year and getting to know the girls as well as helping them to develop their lacrosse skills.
