Play Primary School POP Lacrosse

Teachers – if you would like to have a lacrosse programme at your school in 2010/11 read on . . .

Cobham Sports Association is the largest provider of amateur sport in the borough of Elmbridge, with some 1500 players of different sports – Tennis, Lacrosse, Cricket & Rugby.  CSA is trying, with grant support from Sport England and Surrey County Council, to encourage more youngsters to play sport at all levels.

We have been running a programme to get more state school girls playing lacrosse and our visiting US coach Lindsey McDonald has been coaching, some 200 state primary school girls at little or no cost to the school or girls.

This culminates in an eight team ‘pop’ (U12) lacrosse tournament on 7th March at Feltonfleet School.  This is primarily aimed at state primary schools (all new mostly girl players this year) whom Lindsey has been coaching free-of-charge over the last two terms. 

The match will start at 10.30 and run on a round-robin basis until about 1.00.  Schools which we have competing so far are: Feltonfleet, St Charles Borromeo (2), Hurst Park, Cobham (2) and Cleves.  The event is being hosted at Feltonfleet School and is free to enter and free for spectators – medals and team T shirts will be provided for all competitors.
