CAMP DETAILS

 October Half Term Camp

Monday 25th – Wednesday 27th

Come and join us for 3 days of lacrosse fun.

This camp is designed for players who have already started lacrosse and therfore if you are a brand new player please come to our sumer camp where we can fully cater for your needs.

Numbers are much more limited than our summer camp, so please book quickly to avoid disappointment.

Details for 2022 Camps coming soon…

How the camp is designed…

The summer camp is run as a progressive 5 day course across the week. The timetable is very similar week to week, though coaches obviously adapt to the group.

It is particularly important for beginners, that if you are booking less than 5 days, to please book from the Monday and not start in the middle of the week. This will mean that girls don’t miss the basics or disrupt the flow for the rest of the group. If you are booking various days across different weeks, please start with a  Monday.

Half term and Easter camps have a set number of girls per group to optimise what can be achieved over a few days. The focus is on fun and developing play for girls who are already familiar with the sport and it is not appropriate for complete beginners.

At the camp

  • We have sticks for purchase from £70
  • 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 (£4)
  • UK Lacrosse will come one day each week, giving advice about stringing and repairing of sticks, as well as selling lacrosse goods
  • Excel Sports run a multi-sports camp at the same venue through the summer – perhaps younger siblings would enjoy it while your daughter does lacrosse

 

With the challenges that the Covid crisis presents for the organisation of events, there may be circustances we cannot contol.

We hope – following current government expectations – that there will be no need for restrictions outdoors. We have previously managed to navigate the British weather and accomodate girls in groups indoors if there is heavy rain. However, if there are further limitations indoors due to Covid making this not possible, and we have to cancel individual days due to rain, we would not be able to offer a refund, but would give a credit for future camps.

That being said, please make sure that studs, a change of clothes and waterproofs are brought each day as we will continue to play in moderate rain.
