Junior Recruiting

The future of our club is built on the foundation of its junior membership. With strong junior divisions, and the development of our juniors as they progress in the girls' and boys' teams, our senior membership numbers will remain healthy.

In 2008 club members have run introductions to lacrosse and practice sessions at local primary schools. Last week we also addressed the Glen Iris Cricket Club junior presentation evening. At the time of going to press, we are still working to build numbers in our under 12 boys' and under 13 girls' teams.

In the longer term we are aiming to have lacrosse become part of the program for the Glen Iris District Primary Schools Sports Association.

Personal contacts are a highly effective way of introducing new people to our sport and to our club. So if you have a brother, sister or friend that doesn't know about lacrosse, or doesn't know how to get involved, invite them down to watch a training session and perhaps sample the sport.

Thank you to all those that have helped with the school program so far: Cameron Dew, Rob Gloutnay, Josh Anderson, Amy Johnson, Tristan Ward, Matt Hodder, Jordan Sharon, Will Comfort and Ross Melville.
