    Want to try something completely new at uni? Maybe Lacrosse is for you!

    Most of the people int he club have never picked up a stick before university and most people picks it up really quickly and love the sport!

    There is a Men's, Women's and Mixed team and we all go out on socials together everyone Wednesday as well as going on tour to Spain in Easter; something you don't want to miss out on!

    Training are on Tuesday night 8:30-10 and Saturday Afternoons, time tbc

    We will be at both the international and regular freshers fair come September and hope to see many new faces come and join in on our taster sessions in the beginning over term!

    Feel free to join our Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/2216046359/

    Here is a video of some American college Lacrosse so you get a feel for what the men's game is like - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IidZRr4ttro

    we provide the necessary equipment (stick, helmet, gloves)... most people end up getting there own stuff anyway, once they are addicted!

    keep an eye out for us at freshers fair!

    unfortunately you need to have the sport centre membership for insurance reasons etc.. it is well worth it though as you can use the gym at manor road and on campus with the gold membership!

    i believe you can just get the silver one (you'd have to look into it though), but the gold is well worth it... £190 at the moment which is pretty good for what you get really!

    Hi there, this is a very general question about the sports clubs at Leicester, but would a sports membership be required for all sports club or is it only specific to lacrosse.

    Sorry, if this sounds like a daft question.

    Hi! as far as i am aware all sports clubs require the sports membership to be paid for for insurance reasons as well as to use the facilities (playing fields, astro etc...), but obviously you would need to talk to whichever club/team you wish to make sure!

    but really it is great to have for access to the gym in general as well and is a worth while investment!
