Spencer Lacrosse Club is really excited to run a week’s lacrosse camp during half term in October 2020 in partnership with former England Lacrosse Captain Ash Gloster (and her new venture AMG Sports) who will be head coach.
With over 50 Caps and England Captain for 4 years, the pinnacle of Ash’s playing career was in 2017 when she led the England Lacrosse to a Bronze Medal in the World Cup!
We are delighted to be able to offer a team of exceptionally experienced coaches for all abilities (absolute beginner through advanced) within the Year 5 – Year 11 age groups and could not think of a better team of people to better equip you with skills, drills, strategies and techniques.
Full refund if the camp is cancelled due to Coronavirus.

Where do I drop off /pick up my child at a camp?
Spencer Lacrosse Club, Fieldview, London, SW18 3HF. For parking info please see the find us page. There will be staff and clear signage directing you to where you need to be. Drop off and pick up will be at this point every day.
What time should I drop off /pick up my child at a camp?
Our activity hours are 9.30am to 4pm. Please ensure that you arrive at the club in plenty of time for the participant to start at 9.30am.
What equipment should my child bring?
A STICK - Everyone needs one. If you don't have one, don’t worry! Please indicate this on the booking form and we will provide one for you.
A MOUTHGUARD - They are mandatory for the sport of lacrosse, and we can't let people play without one. We recommend this one.
GOGGLES - According to the governing body, these are 'highly recommended, but not mandatory'. We follow this line.
BOOTS - We recommend boots, as they can help to reduce the risk of injuries. These can be any studded boots.
TRAINERS - If we end up doing bits and pieces inside, it is important to have a clean pair to wear.
What should my child wear?
Participants should wear clothes appropriate to the weather (shorts in the summer, tracksuits / skins in the winter, waterproofs etc) and a change of clothes in case it rains.
Should I provide lunch and drinks for my child?
Please can all campers provide a packed lunch, we would ask that it is nut-free. All participants should bring a refillable drinks bottle.
Will you provide sun cream?
No, we cannot provide or apply sunscreen to participants. Please send the appropriate factor with your child and we will remind them throughout the day to apply it.
How do you divide the athletes to ensure they get the most appropriate level of coaching?
We primarily use age to split up the athletes, however we do not use this as a hard and fast rule. If we have a participant who would benefit from joining another group we will of course move them. We take into account things such as experience, size, safety and their wishes before we move anyone. Our experienced coaches will oversee this.
Do you have a refund policy?
The full details of the refund policy can be found within the cancellation section on the camps Terms and Conditions below.

Booking Terms & Conditions
Thank you for taking the time to read our Booking Terms & Conditions. We feel that these are really important to protect both parties and set a clear understanding from the start. We have tried to explain why these are written as they are, and hope you feel they are fair.
After you finalise the booking and make a payment your place on the course is secure. From this point, should you wish to cancel your booking, the cancellation terms and conditions apply.
We sign participants in and out at the beginning and end of each day. If you ticked the box to say that you are happy for them to sign themselves in and out, you acknowledge that we do not take responsibility for their whereabouts after the official end of the course once they have signed themselves out. Should you not tick this box, we will need to see the person picking them up.
Keeping participant to coach ratios low is essential to give participants the best experience and coaching. As numbers grow on courses, we are committed to providing more coaches and facilities. Should we not meet the minimum number for a course to run, you will at our discretion, either be offered private tuition over a shorter period of time, be booked onto another course at your convenience, or we will refund you.
IF THE CAMP IS CANCELLED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (or for any other reason), PEOPLE WILL AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE A FULL REFUND – PLEASE ALLOW UP TO FOUR WEEKS FOR US TO PROCESS THE REFUND BEFORE CHASING.
We appreciate that unexpected things can sometimes happen. As such, cancelling might be the only option. We ask you to understand that we make our commitments to coaches and venues long in advance, which are both subject to AMG Sports signing up to terms and conditions. To protect the future quality of the courses, the following conditions apply.
If you give us more than 3 months notice, we will offer a full refund minus a 10% admin fee
If you give us between 1 and 3 months notice, we will offer a 50% refund
If you give us less than 1 month’s notice you will forfeit the entire course fees
The course fee will also be forfeited if the participant fails to attend the course
We retain the right to send a participant home should their behaviour be seen as dangerous or not be conducive to those around them having fun and learning. We see this as a last resort and hope we never have to do this. Should your participant be sent home due to behavioural issues, you will not be refunded for the course.
Lacrosse is an all-season sport and, as such, we accept that sometimes (often) it isn’t glorious sunshine when we play. Should the weather not be perfect, we will still continue to run the course, but re-address the balance of inside, outside, theory and practical coaching to make sure we don’t get cold and miserable. Please ensure that your participant has appropriate clothing based on the weather, as this will help us make the most of the day, regardless of the weather. It will be at the coaches discretion whether it is unsafe to be outdoors and, as per the guidelines set out by the FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse), we will always stop playing in the event of lightning.
As a polite note, if your participant is ill before or during the course, we kindly ask you not to bring them in, as it is unfair on the other participants if they are contagious. If they fall ill during the day when at under AMG Sports supervision, we will call the emergency contact and make a sensible decision that is best for all concerned. Should they fall ill during the course, we will be unable to refund any booking fees because of commitments to coaches, trainers and venues.
As with any sport, playing lacrosse involves an element of risk. Our coaches are experts at setting up practices and games to minimise risk, but the chance of injury and accident will always be there. Mouthguards can help prevent serious injury, and as such wearing them for Lacrosse is mandatory. It remains the responsibility of participants to wear their gum shield for every practice. We will not let participants play if they have forgotten their gum shield. The English Lacrosse Association highly recommends that goggles be worn to play lacrosse. However, as they are not mandatory, we leave this choice up to the participants and their parents/guardians. Should you wish your athlete to wear goggles, we invite them to please bring their own pair.
By signing up to these T&Cs you acknowledge that:
Lacrosse is a sport that has risks attached and you give your permission for the athlete you are registering to participate in all the activities. You acknowledge that AMG Sports or Spencer Lacrosse cannot be held liable for any injury or accident that may occur. Should an injury occur, we would have first aid trained members of staff on site. If that injury is of a serious nature and requires hospital treatment, every effort will be made to speak with the named emergency contact. However, in the event that we cannot make contact, the senior member of staff acting ‘in loco parentis’ would make any immediate decisions for treatment in conjunction with hospital staff and any notes on the medical form. We will use the details you provide on your booking form to contact you. It is your responsibility to take insurance against personal injury, accident or loss whilst on an AMG Sports course, should you wish to do so.
Please note we do not take any responsibility for personal items or equipment, including but not limited to their damage, theft or loss.
Photos and Videos
Photo and video can be both a valuable coaching aid and help improve the appearance of our website and other marketing pieces. We do however understand that this is a sensitive area, and needs to be treated as such. By signing up for a course you give consent for us to take photos and video of your participant joining in course activities. In some cases, there may be a legitimate reason for denying consent. If this is the case, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at the time of booking, so that we can explore ways of helping.
We also do not wish to prevent parents from taking pictures of their athletes playing. In fact, we do encourage you share any shots and/or video clips with us that you are particularly proud of! Please do note however that we retain the right to ask that they are deleted, or ask any individuals not to take photographs or videos. We ask that if you see something you are concerned about to let us know so we can address it.
We kindly ask for you to take responsibility to store the images securely, and ask you not to ‘tag’ images online, or add in the athletes’ names, as this increases the risk to young people online.
We treat your privacy seriously and AMG Sports or Spencer Lacrosse does not distribute, share or sell your data. By booking on this course, your data will be stored only for the duration of the course. We will use the email address you provide to send you course-specific information and contact you about future courses.
We really hope you enjoy your time with us at Spencer with AMG Sports. If there are any problems or worries, please give us a call, or send an email to email@example.com.
