LSE Lacrosse is one of the largest mixed sports teams in LSE's AU and won LSESU Club of the Year 2020 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 we have a consistently high number of social members that make our club as good as it is. That's why we're centred on weekly social events, including team dinners, pub crawls and pre-Zoo events all of which will be optional, but encouraged. (These may look a bit different this year, subject to COVID-19 regulations).
Never played, or even heard of lacrosse before? No problem! Our training sessions will start with the basics and teach you everything you need to know about the sport within the first few weeks .
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 shirt for the season, and will only be required to bring your own boots and a mouth guard.
No time? You are extremely busy as an LSE student—we get it. That is why we are flexible with your commitment to the team. We don't expect you to prioritize the 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!
Full Membership: £50 - to pay for Wednesday training at Regent’s Park, Monday stick skills sessions, social events, a qualified coach, umpires, and all the kit, sticks and match shirts that you enjoy.
Social Membership: £20 - for those who want to join our social events, but will not attend the weekly training sessions.
Events and Activities
With the ever changing Covid situation, we cannot guarantee we will be able to offer the same events as in previous years, but we will do our best to ensure our members still get the opportunities to play lacrosse and socialise throughout the year as much as possible. In previous years our events and activities included:
- Biweekly training sessions (Monday and Wednesday)
- Sunday matches for the 1st team at Berrylands
- Regular friendlies for the 2nd team in Regent's Park
- Post training at Tuns on a Monday night
- Pub golf
- Club Dinners twice a term
- Tour - last year we went to Malaga, the year before we went to Ireland!
- Karaoke with LSESU Boxing
- AU wide events - we always host pres on a Wednesday night before Zoo
- A chance to learn a new sport in a relaxed and friendly environment (90% of our members join without having played before)
The committee is really looking forward to welcoming new members and if you have any questions about who we are/what we offer don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can send us a message on Facebook (LSE Lacrosse Club), Instagram ( @lselacrosse) or drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) Please keep an eye out on our social media channels as they will have all relevant information for our events at the start of term including our “Give It A Go sessions”.
