When we had the facility to employ full time coaches, we ran after school clubs in local schools at primary and secondary level.
In 2013/14, we coached Pop lacrosse at St Charles Borromeo, Hurst Park, Cardinal Newman and St Lawrence Schools, working with boys and girls in years 5 and 6. After winning the Elmbridge Pop Lacrosse Tournament in March this year, St Charles Borromeo went on to represent Elmbridge at the National Pop Lacrosse Championships and finished 8th nationally. Here's a quote from their Head Teacher:
Oh we were so close to something special! We had an amazing day, superb standard of lacrosse and we did you proud. Twenty four teams from across the country, including Wales and Scotland, took part and we progressed through to the National Championship last 8. Unlike last year where we got a good beating in the quarters, we held our own and were about a minute from progressing to the semis! A break away in the final seconds secured a 6-4 win for Drymen from Scotland, who actually beat Hale Prep who were the eventual winners. Once again a great day for our boys and girls.
At secondary level, we coach girls' lacrosse at Heathside Secondary School, Weybridge and Holy Cross, New Malden.
If you are interested in your school offering lacrosse please contact Janet Kiddle. With Sportivate funding we can setup and run a 6 week free programme, if your students are girls aged 14+ years and you can get a group together for 6 weeks.
