Match Reports - April 9, 2011

State League

State League Mens and Womens games were played at Albert Park on both the grass field and the synthetic ground.

This author departed Melbourne in sunny and warm conditions on Saturday morning with the car thermometer reading a balmy 27 degrees. Shorts and T shirts were the order of the day.

U11 Girls VICLAX Programme

Lacrosse Victoria is trialling a new programme for girls U11 called VICLAX. The programme will be integrated into the women’s fixture. It is in the style of AUSKICK where players from all clubs come together in groups regardless of club. Players are rotated through stations of different activities where they will be professionally coached in different skills. A short game will be played afterwards.

Match Reports - March 28, 2011

Under 13

Score: Camberwell 1 - Williamstown 9

The first game started at 11am in Altona. CLC had a full team. The improvement in our game was obvious as the girls made passes, defended, and placed themselves on the field. Thanks to the preseason training given by the club at MILL, the girls’ confidence and game skills were outstanding.

Experienced girls are mentoring our new recruits and the pairing up of players really helped keep the game moving. Compared to last season when Williamstown were winning 18-nil, our defensive skills were terrific this year.

Transport to Warrnambool

Just a week to go before the Australian Lacrosse Classic kicks off. A lot of clubs are expected to troop to Warrnambool for the games.

LV is making it easier for clubs planning to hire buses for the trip. The association has corporate accounts with Budget, Hertz, and Europcar. This means cheaper mini van hires. 12 & 24 seater buses are available for hire but the 24-seaters can only be driven by drivers with the appropriate licence.

Note that clubs cannot book directly with these hire companies. All bookings must be done through Lacrosse Victoria.

Warrnambool Fixture

LV have announced the fixture for the State League matches on Saturday, 9 April. Camberwell will play Surrey Park on the synthetic surface.

The schedule for the other teams are as follows:


  • 1:00pm: Altona/Caulfield vs Newport
  • 2:15pm: Williamstown vs Footscray


Fundraiser for Clinton and Travis

As announced in a previous news bulletin, two Camberwell players have made the Australian Indoor Lacrosse team. Travis Gathercole and Clinton Lander will be part of the Australian side in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships this May.

Our two players are trying to raise funds to offset the expenditure needed to play in the world championships. They are selling T-shirts specially designed for this event. The T-shirts are available in black or yellow and in sizes XL, L, Medium, and so on. Bigger sizes can be arranged.

General Meeting Minutes of LV Junior Sub committee

As there's a lot of focus on junior recruitment, LV have formed a special Junior subcommittee to provide special attention to this area. Following are the minutes of their most recent meeting held February 2nd.

1. Finals for U13 Girls. It was generally agreed by the group that kids enjoy playing and would like to have additional games, by way of finals. Most voted and agreed to recommend the U13 Girls finals to the match committee.

Under 17 Presidents Team

Lacrosse Victoria are fielding a President's side for the Under 17 national championships. This move allows ALA to invite participation from states that might not otherwise be able to give their talented players exposure to the best on offer. Another dimension is that this affords talented players the chance to be seen by the Australian and other national coaches. If you're interested in joining the team, please send your applications to the LV office.

Club News Bulletin

Congratulations to Jan Jackson who was appointed Technical Delegate at the upcoming FIL Under 19 Women's World Championship in Hanover, Germany in August 2011. If your game has been umpired by Jan you know her judgement is impeccable. Jan is one of our life members and still regularly umpires indoor competitions and Senior women's games.

Lacrosse Victoria Bulletin 2011 Issue 3

Highlights from the third issue, 20th February 2011.

1. The President of the ALA, Fiona Clark, was this year's guest speaker. She spoke for about forty minutes and provided an informative insight into the workings, motivations, and mindset of ALA. She also discussed the association's efforts at working on a Junior Development Programme. Of interest is the widespread level of lacrosse uptake around the world, and particularly in Europe. For example, there is now a competition in Greece!
