ENGLAND LACROSSE COVID-19 GOVERNMENT APPROVED AND RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES

Welcome to UWE Lacrosse!

Here at UWE lacrosse we aren't just a team, we think of ourselves as one big family, all coming together to play a unique sport, enjoy socialising and make friends for life!

Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport at university level in the UK and the standard is continuing to increase each year.

We have 2 men's teams and 2 women's teams all playing competitively in BUCS throughout the year!

We partake in Tour which occurs each year around the Easter holidays and have previously been to Croatia and Italy. Each year we get away for a week of partying, sunshine and of course, lacrosse! We are always joined by other sports teams from the university as well as various univerity teams in the UK. Our tour video highlights can be seen on our YouTube channel in the link above!

Both experienced players AND beginners are encouraged to join so make sure you come and try it!

We also have a very social aspect to our club with mixed weekly socials and different themes and events organised by our social secs!

Men's Lacrosse

Men's Lacrosse has the best qualities of every sport! It combines the physicality of American football and rugby, with the speed and agility of football and basketball.

Our men's players got to compete for the first time since Covid in the 21/22 season at BUCS 6s, reaching it to the finals while beating some of the best teams in the UK along the way!

Our Men's 1st Team have been promoted in BUCS for their outstanding play in the 21/22 season, going undefeated in the league and just falling short by one goal in the Cup finals! We can't wait to see what the boys achieve this season.

We also have a fantastic men's coach from Bristol Bombers Lacrosse Team who has hugely improved the play of our men's team, and will be back for an even better and tougher 22/23 season.

All kit will be provided by the club (helmets, sticks, pads and gloves) so there is no need to go out and buy anything if you don't want to. All you have to do is come along to our taster sessions to meet the team and play lacrosse!

Women's Lacrosse

Enjoy playing sport but want to try something new? Why not give Lacrosse a try? It’s a fast-paced team sport and unlike the men’s version it’s non-contact!

This year we aim to have a 3rd team as a development squad for our new freshers wanting to join!

Our 1st Team finished 2nd in their league this season and the development of our 2nd Team was outstanding given the teams they were challenged against, as most of the 2nd Team are beginners!

This season we have UWE lax alumni Katherine Wibberley coaching the women's, along with our Head Coach, Kyle.

We can provide you with sticks so don't worry if you don't have one yet, we just need you to come and meet us and enjoy playing lacrosse!
