LSE Lacrosse in the largest mixed sports team in LSE's AU and the sport itself is one of the fastest growing in the UK. Every week we have two training sessions - stick skills/fitness on Mondays on campus, and training and friendlies on Wednesdays in Regents Park. We complete in LUSL and Sundays are our match days (with our home ground in Berrylands).
We believe that a relationship off the pitch is as important as collaboration on the pitch and as a club we have a consistently high number of social members that make our club as good as it is. That's why our club is centred on weekly social events including team dinners, pub crawls and pre-Zoo events all of which will be optional, but encouraged.
Never played, or even heard of, lacrosse before? No problem at all. Our training sessions will start with the basics and teach you everything you need to know about the sport. 2019/2020 will see the club introducing a new Coach in addition to our Captains so that our beginners can advance at a faster rate and be more competitive in matches!
No kit? The beauty of mixed-gender lacrosse is that the kit is very basic and inexpensive. You will be provided with a stick and training bib for the season, and will only be required to purchase boots (optional) and a mouth guard.
No time? You are extremely busy as an LSE student—we get it. That is why we are willing to be flexible with your commitment to the team. Trainers are willing to accommodate team members by offering sessions at multiple times if necessary to fit the schedules of the team members. You are not expected to prioritize this team above more important aspects of your life—such as academics and employment—all we can hope is that you manage your time to the best of your ability.
