Women’s Lacrosse Celebrates 50th Season

This year marks the 50th successive season of Women’s Lacrosse in Victoria and to celebrate, the ladies are organising a 1960’s style Picnic Day at the Eltham Lacrosse Club on Sunday 29th May. This is a fun day for the whole family with a bunch of interesting activities slated to keep the energy up. People will get to try their hand at the wooden stick, skills competitions, and what is sure to be a challenging Parents vs Kids game.

Senior Mens & Womens State Teams 2011

Interested players may now apply for a place on the Senior Men and Senior Women State Teams which will compete in the ALA Senior Nationals from 10th to 16th July in Adelaide. Applicants must complete and submit the appropriate application form, available on the Lacrosse Victoria website, and pay a $50 State Team trial application fee.

Senior Men trials will be held on the following dates from 9 a.m. till 11 a.m. at the MCC LC:

Good luck to Travis and Clinton

Good luck to Travis and Clinton as they prepare for World Indoor Championship in Prague. Lacrosse Victoria will be sending through a link where supporters can access game results/fixtures. At times there is a live stream from selected games.

The two men are shown with Patrick who has helped to sponsor their campaign. Aussie Aussie Wells!

Congratulations!

To Marde Hoy who has just announced her engagement to Rhys. Marde was a long standing committee member and secretary for several years. She played seniors and helped to coach our juniors. We will be awaiting her return to Australia to hear more.

To Dylan Trewern, our CLC member of the successful u17 Victorian team. Dylan was long stick defence, number 18 and he had a great game especially in the final quarter when WA upped their efforts. VIC won 14-10 and all 4 finals were won by Victoria. All scores now on the Lacrosse Victoria website.

 

Junior recruitment drive makes excellent progress

Huge thanks to all who have helped with the junior recruitment drives at Hartwell, St. Michaels, Solway, and Camberwell Sth. Lacrosse Victoria has a little saying that “Recruitment of new players is the answer to any lacrosse problems”. The final ‘come n try’ session for new players was held Saturday 2 April just before the registration day program.

Match Reports - April 16, 2011

State League

The Camberwell spirit was absent for the first three quarters, despite Camberwell leading into the first break (Camberwell has been a slow starter for the last two decades). But a Camberwell ‘esque’ foul with seconds to go in the first quarter put Camberwell on the back foot, from which Camberwell never recovered.

A spirited come back from Camberwell arose in the final quarter but was all too late. A final shot into the night for a team that inspires a belief on paper, but couldn’t quite deliver in person.

Aussie Indoor Lacrosse Team Practice Match

The Aussie Indoor Lacrosse Team are playing a practice match before heading to Prague for the 2011 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. Don't miss out on this as this will be their one and only game in Australia.

Tickets are $5.00 each to help the team get to Prague. These guys have got Aussie pride riding on their shoulders so let's come on out and show them the love!

When: Sunday 17 April at 2.00pm

Where: Puckhandlers Arena, 1 Blake St, Reservoir

2011 Club Referee Accreditation Courses

Season 2011 is about to kick off and clubs are busy finalising preparations. One more thing we need to take care of is providing referees for each match. Of course, our referees must be qualified and duly accredited by ALRA or Camberwell will be fined.

ALRA are conducting a Club Referee Accreditation course next month. The course is to be held in two sessions over two weeks. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be conferred two-year club referee accreditation.

Victorian Women's Team Positions

Lacrosse Victoria is urgently seeking a Head Coach and a Manager for the Senior Women's team who are competing in the Senior Nationals in Adelaide from 10-16 July 2011.

The Head Coach will be responsible for the Selection Trials in May and Team Trainings from June to July. Unless a coach is appointed for this team, they will be unable to participate in the tournament.

CLC is inviting players, families, and friends (over 18 of course) to join the Punters Club. Entry fee has been reduced to $50 per member, equivalent to $2 per betting week. Betting weekends starts on 28th May and ends 12th November. Bets will be placed on www.sportsbet.com.auand will be emailed to Punters Club members every week. Punters will be rotated per week.
