New Book Announcement

A new book on lacrosse in Australia is coming.  Check it out – you might want to pick up a copy.

The story of the beginnings of lacrosse and how it spread to every Australian State has never before been told.  This book has 290 pages of intriguing content supported with 190 photographs.  The author is the ALA Historian, Doug Fox, a former Australian Team Captain and long-time administrator and promoter of our sport (and Camberwell legend and life member).

The book will interest anyone with lacrosse connections and it makes a great gift or prize for club presentations.

Willie at Willie

It was a brisk, but sunny afternoon out at Williamstown this Saturday gone. Spectators and players alike would agree it was perfect lacrosse weather, and it was under these idealic settings that a modest, but dedicated crowd gathered to watch State League no. 1 play no. 2 – a match up that was sure to entertain. The crowd would not be disappointed (unless, of course, they were supporting the home side!).

U15 girls continue their winning ways

The sun shone brightly at Paisley Park in honour of a special memorial round for Sue Sofarnos and her beloved Newport. 
The CLXC U15Gs took to the field mid morning - not a breath of wind. 
It was an intense matchup from the first whistle, with strong attack from Maeve Weiss, Rhyannon Bergin & Grace Lewis. Cutting and weaving the teams were evenly matched with strong goals from Rhyannon to be 2-0 up at quarter break. Speedy runs through the centre by Siena Connaughton and Matilda Paradisis kept the momentum toward Camberwell/Caufield attack.

All training will be at Eric Raven Reserve.

U13 Boys and U17 Boys will be Surrey / Camberwell teams. Home games will be a combination of Surrey (Mont Albert Reserve, Dunloe Ave, Mont Albert) and Camberwell. The boys will be predominantly playing in Surrey tops with red shorts.

Bendigo Bank supporting local clubs

With the COVID restriction gradually lifting, many organisations have launched initiatives to help Victorians return to sport.

Bendigo Bank has launched a Return to Community Sport grant program to assist with the additional costs in getting clubs up and running and meeting the requirements of the COVIDSafe Plan.

We are pleased to announce that Bendigo Bank has informed us that we have been successful in our application and been awarded $2,000.

Coaches Support Program

Coaching with the Camberwell Lacrosse Club

Almost all lacrosse players can remember their first coach. The person who introduced them to this wonderful game and coached them in their first season.

Coaches are a vital part of our club, and the sport, and we wouldn't survive without them. They are the generous people who give up their nights and weekends to ensure our players have the right support from the sidelines helping them in their development.

All of our junior coaches are volunteers, but in this day and age, the logistical and related costs our coaches do incur are not insignificant.

Volunteer of the Year 2020

Camberwell Lacrosse Club is a family-friendly community club and is proud of the commitment of volunteers who contribute to the Club operations.

Each month the Committee nominates a Volunteer of the Month and at the end of the year, the Club Volunteer of the Year is determined by the Committee.

Despite there being no official competition play in 2020, there were still a number of volunteers who made enormous contributions in maintaining contact with players through online and fun, active activities.

Dust off your boots, rinse your mouthguard and brush the cobwebs off your stick.
