Kick start your lacrosse season, have fun and develop your skills

Nearly 500 girls come each summer and enjoy learing and playing lacrosse with friends. Each year we recieve so much positive feedback and requests for more camps.

For 2020 we are offering an Easter Camp to celebrate the end of the lacrosse season and give girls the chance to enjoy a few more days of coaching and lacrosse based fun with friends. The numbers will be limited to 100 girls.

We are also offering GOALIE DISCOUNT for goalie’s who are able to bring their own kit or borrow form school.               (Please email jes@chiswicklacrosse.co.uk to enquire.) 

 

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 under 12s, 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 dont 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.

(In Week 3 it is fine to start on the Tuesday if you cannot make the Bank holiday.)

Which week to choose?

Week 1

(10th to 14th)

Especially good for beginners as the staffing ratio is particularly high.

There is a focus on individual skills in the upper age groups this week.

Week 2 

(17th to 21st)

Still great for beginners.

Usually plenty of squads and therefore more focus on team play.

High coaching ratio due to new coaches training.

Week 3 

(24th to 28th)
(including Bank Holiday)

As our biggest week it is usually the best socially. Most girls are back from holiday and are keen to get ready for the new season of lacrosse. 

Week 4

(31st Aug to 4th Sept)

Due to varied start dates for schools, we’ve decided to run a 4th week. This gives an opportunity for girls not starting back until the following week to get some extra coaching in.

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 (£3.50).

.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 through the summer – perhaps younger siblings would enjoy it while your daughter does lacrosse.

The venue runs a tuck shop at break times.
