AoC Sport Introducing campaign: Lacrosse

20 January 2022

AoC Sport Introducing Lacrosse

We are pleased to introduce Lacrosse as part of the AoC Sport Introducing campaign with dedicated information for colleges on how to get staff and students involved.

Lacrosse, is a modern version of the North American Indian game of baggataway, in which two teams of players use long-handled, racket like implements (crosses) to catch, carry, or throw a ball down the field or into the opponents’ goal.

Teams usually have 10 players: the goalkeeper, three defenders, three midfielders (one of whom is the centre), and three attackers. There are two officials, a referee and a judge

How colleges can get involved

England Lacrosse runs a Lacrosse Accredited Colleges Scheme (LACS) in Further Education institutions across England. The scheme aims to bring lacrosse to the FE sector through a coordinated and sustainable programme to increase regular participation within the 16-18 age group.

Member colleges receive training from England Lacrosse to assist in delivery of the sport, in-person CPD, and additional learning opportunities for identified students through a Student Ambassador initiative designed to give young adults leadership skills in addition to supporting practical delivery of lacrosse.

If you are interested in introducing Lacrosse at your college, please contact Helen Amos -
