We provide enthusiastic and effective coaching to get you ready for next season or prepare you for a new sport at your new school.
Nearly 500 girls come each year.
Over 200 are girls going to new secondary schools – the Camp gives them the chance to learn a new sport and meet up with girls going to their next school.
In 2018 we had 100 girls in the top groups, ranging from Junior National players to enthusiasts; they were all great examples for the younger girls to aspire to.
We also offer to train Squads, enabling school teams to book and play together.
Girls age 9-16, beginners to national squad players
The ratio is 10:1 or better
We have over 50 coaches with experience from school senior teams, to county and national players

Which week to choose?
Week 1 (12th to 16th)
Especially good for beginners as the staffing ratio is particularly high.
Last year it was also popular with older girls going for Junior England trials so that they could get up to speed in preparation. There is a focus on individual skills in the upper age groups this week.
Week 2 (19th to 23rd)
Still great for beginners.
Particularly good for St Pauls as they start the autumn term early.
Usually plenty of squads and therefore more focus on team play.
Week 3 (26th to 30th)
(including the Bank Holiday)
As our biggest week it is usually the best socially. Being so close to the beginning of term, most girls are back from holiday and are keen to get ready for the new season of lacrosse.
At the camp
We have sticks for purchase from £50.
We also have a number of sicks to borrow, however if your daughter is starting lacrosse at school it is well worth buying a stick, to get used to and wear in through the week.
We will sell and help fit cheap and cheerful mouthguards (£2.50).
OPro dentists will come on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesdays to fit for mouthgaurds where requested.
UK Lacrosse will come one day each week, giving advice re stringing and repairing of sticks as well as selling lacrosse goods.
TS Hattersleys will also come a couple of days, selling lacrosse equipment and kit.
Excel Sports run a multi-sports camp at the same venue – perhaps younger siblings would enjoy it while your daughter does lacrosse.
We run a tuck shop at break times.
