Juniors


There is a thriving junior section at Spencer Lacrosse which continues to grow and caters to boys and girls of all ages and abilities. During our regular season, from September until March, Pinball Lacrosse practice and play (generally for all u8's and u12 players new to the game) takes place on a Sunday morning between 9.30 - 10.30. Age grouped Field Lacrosse also take place on a Sunday morning. Sessions for more experienced players run from 9.30 - 10.45 (girls’ U11), 10.45 – 12.00 (girls’ U13 & girls’ U15) and 10.30 - 12:30 (men's rules programme – for boys and girls who prefer to play these rules). In the early summer our session swap to 7.15 to 8.45pm on Mondays on the Astro at Spencer and, in the later summer from 6.30 to 8.00pm on Wandsworth Common.

Junior Equipment – Club Policy

Lacrosse specific equipment - a stick, helmet, gloves and arm and chest padding and a 'pinny' (that's lacrosse speak for a reversible bib) are all available to borrow. Players will really benefit from owning their own stick as soon as possible and should look to obtain their own set of equipment – as soon as birthdays and Christmases allow.

For most events players will generally need to wear sports clothing. As with the seniors, most games are played on grass with the occasional game on artificial pitches - suitable footwear will be required.

The club provides playing jerseys for games.

Safeguarding

Spencer Lacrosse Club adopts England Lacrosse's Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Lacrosse Policy, Procedures and Guidance to ensure all those in the lacrosse community have a safe and positive experience.

Coaches, players and parents in a position of responsibility for Juniors in our Programme are expected to follow Spencer Lacrosse Club's Principles of Safeguarding Good Practice
