WELCOME TO RICHMOND LACROSSE CLUB
2023 Summer Programme
NB 2023/24 season details will be available from July 2023
We expect to run the following teams next season:
u8s and u10s mixed softball lacrosse
We are running a seven week summer lacrosse programme for u8s and u10s (both mixed gender groups) and u12 boys from Sunday 11 June 2023 to Sunday 23 July 2023 (inclusive). All sessions will run on Old Deer Park, near to Pools on the Park.
Under 8s & 10s (boys & girls) - 9:30am - 11:00am. The first session will take place on Sunday 11 June and we'll run through until Sunday 23 July. We offer one off session passes, 3 and 5 session bundles as well as a 7 week season pass (see our memberships page for more details).
Under 12 boys - 10:30am - 12:00pm. The first session will take place on Sunday 11 June and we'll run through until Sunday 23 July. We offer one off session passes, 3 and 5 session bundles as well as a 7 week season pass (see our memberships page for more details).
All equipment will be provided for new players.
Who are the coaches at Richmond?
We employ a core of professional, qualified coaches who are supported by a team of volunteers.
Does my child need to have played lacrosse before?
No. We are passionate about introducing the sport to beginners but we cater to all ability levels, from complete beginners to children who have played the sport for a number of years
Do we need to bring our own equipment?
No, as Richmond is setup to introduce beginners to the game, we are able to provide any player with a set of club kit to borrow. We just ask that they come down in appropriate sports clothing with a water bottle. At u13 level they will also need their own mouth guard.
What's the difference between the U8/10s and the U13s?
At u8s and u10s the focus of all our mixed gender sessions is on the kids having fun and learning the basics of lacrosse including passing, catching, scooping the ball and running with it. We break into dedicated boys and girls teams at u13 level and combine a focus on further developing a player's core skills with developing their understanding of match play in preparation for competitive fixtures. On the boys side, this will include learning how to play the game in full equipment (which Richmond can lend to players).
How do I know if my child will like lacrosse?
We might be biased but we think lacrosse is a great sport. However, we understand that you won't necessarily want to commit to a whole season until your child has had a go which is why we offer a one week taster option. From our memberships page you can select a taster session at any age group.
How can I help the club develop?
Please drop us a message if you'd like to get more actively involved in running the club. We are always on the lookout for those who would be willing to join our team of volunteers.
What if my question hasn't been answered?
Just drop us a message (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll get back to as quickly as we can.
