ERR move postponed

Camberwell Lacrosse Club was informed yesterday that the planned move of the club to Eric Raven Reserve has been delayed because Boroondara Council has been unable to install all 4 light posts in time. It was initially promised for next Tuesday the 2nd April but, despite repeated assurances in the past 4 months that it would be ready, only 2 poles have been installed.  

Unfortunately this means that the plans made for the season launch event at our new training ground have to be changed. We will now train for another week at Dorothy Laver Reserve West.

2019 Junior's Underway - bring a friend

There was a great turnout to juniors training last week at Dorothy Laver Reserve West. We will be here until the end of March, and then we move operations to Eric Raven Reserve.

The girls trained on Wednesday at 5:30 under the guidance of Meredith Carre, with coaches Amanda, Cat and Bernie. We had a great turnout, particularly from some new Ashwood High School girls. It was pleasing to see more than a full team of U15 girls. Welcome to all the new players.

2019 Social Membership is now available

Camberwell Lacrosse social membership is now available to our supporters for only $50. It includes membership rights, a beanie and canteen voucher. And a great feeling from helping support our club.

There is also a very limited opportunity to be our first (and only) Number 1 Ticketholder for only $200. Get in fast before anyone else grabs the opportunity and earn the plaudits of everyone. 

Frustration for Doug Fox

Doug is feeling totally frustrated by a recent period of feeling unwell leading up to two weeks of hospitalization and ultimately a diagnosis of Hodgkins Lymphoma.  This has kept him from active involvement with the current junior recruiting and will limit his opportunity to coach juniors this year. He was very much looking forward to an exciting year with the arrival of a great bunch of new Under 15 girls, a second boy's Under 13 team and a new bunch of Under 11's and Under 9's. 

Welcome to new State League coach

Welcome to Lee Davis, our new State League Coach

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Camberwell’s new State League coach, Lee Davis.

Lee comes with a wealth of playing and coaching experience.

Special Scholarship for Talented Girls

Camberwell has a great core of girls for its Under 17 team for 2019 and is reaching out with a special promotion to add a few new players and complete the team.

A group of Club Supporters have banded together to offer three special scholarships that will be awarded for 2019 to girls aged 15 or 16 years who are skilled sportswomen in another team sport and have a desire to take up lacrosse. The scholarships will cover equipment, playing uniform and club membership fees and the recipients will receive fast-track coaching support to develop their lacrosse skills.

Under 9 Lacrosse Program to Start in 2019

Camberwell is gearing up to respond to requests from local families for a junior lacrosse program which caters for girls and boys aged 6 to 8 years.

Currently Lacrosse Victoria offers Under 11 as the starting age inter-club competition but this leaves the younger children without something for their age groups. Junior sports in the Ashburton and Glen Iris area needs more options than just soccer and football. 

Olympian’s of the future?

Camberwell’s Laura Braakhuis and Saskia Hollenkamp were recently named in the Victorian Under 18 Women’s State Team to contest the 2019 National Championship in Perth.

A few days later the news came through that the International Olympic Committee had given lacrosse provisional Olympic status and a pathway to inclusion in the Olympic Games. The target is the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

President's message on Dorothy Laver Reserve West

from Jennie Easson, Camberwell Lacrosse Club President

Yes, we lost our home ground of 35 years on Monday night, as voted by Boroondara Councillors. Dorothy Laver Reserve West will now become a soccer ground. Shattering.

But, we must move on into the next stage of life at Camberwell Lacrosse and celebrate our 92nd year in existence, in 2019, at our new ground for all teams at Eric Raven Reserve. We will have new lights for training and other new infrastructure including storage sheds, fencing and more seating.
