It's a huge relief to let you know that Lacrosse has reached Stage 4 on the Lacrosse Covid Recovery Roadmap which means that, with care, we can now practise and play in groups of 30. We do need to make limited rule adjustments and remain Covid aware before, during and after sessions but, in practice, this means that Junior Lacrosse on Sunday mornings will be very close to 'back to normal'.
Sessions restart on Sunday 6th September:
- Pinball 9.30 - 10.30hrs ('doors open' at 9.15hrs)
- Junior Field Lacrosse - u12 & u16 groups 10.30 - 12.30hrs
The Association has already started work on the Autumn Programme of Activities and this will be published as soon as possible.
'Sign-Up' has been updated and now runs directly through our Membership page. Please let us know if you have any problems purchasing. All Field Lacrosse players under 16 years of age, even the u10's, complete the same 'sign-up' form as the core conditions for each age group are the same. The sign up is identified as 'Boys' which really means 'Men's Rules'. 'Men's Rules' Lacrosse is open to everyone - boys, girls, whoever wants to play.
With Covid restrictions in place we have not been able to take Lacrosse into schools over the summer so the opportunity to 'spread the word' has been very restricted. Brothers/sisters/friends/neighbours/players who might like to try out or 'have a go', are welcome - and trying out is free. This is doubly true for the younger PinBall Group.
Before we re-start, we will be carefully considering our equipment strategy. A few players have parts of or a complete set of their own equipment - which is great. Most will still need to borrow one of the Club sets or elements of equipment they are missing. There is no problem with this - that's what the equipment is there for! However, it may be that to be Covid secure, it will make more sense for Club equipment to be retained by players for safekeeping. We will continue to review and update our equipment strategy before 6th September.
We're now really looking forward to our re-start on 6th September - keep safe in the meantime
