Ahead of the next Sixes cycle British Lacrosse are pleased to accept expressions of interest from eligible players (see Selection Policy). British Lacrosse are establishing a men’s training squad from which teams will be selected to represent Great Britain at a number of events, including the Hong Kong Super Sixes Invitational (26th Dec 2023 to 1st January 2024) and EuroLax Sixes Cup (expected to be 22nd – 25th Feb 2024).

 

Players need to be available for both events and will also be expected to commit to the training cycle:

2nd – 4th Sept      Residential camp

15th Oct               Squad training

5th Nov                 Squad training

26th Nov               Squad training

10th Dec               Squad training

21st Jan                Squad training

11th Feb               Squad training

 

Some key points:

  • The costs of flights and accommodation for this tournament are being heavily subsidised to help make the trip affordable
  • We will be taking a squad of 12 players to Hong Kong

Expressions of interest will be accepted until 4th August and the training squad will be announced on this web-site on 16th August. It is anticipated that approximately 25 players will be selected. Following the announcement further information will be sent to the selected players including full details on the costs associated with being part of the squad. If you have any questions please contact Tom Wenham at menscoach@britishlacrosse.org.

British Lacrosse Women’s Sixes Team Programme

World Lacrosse Sixes [LP comment – this seems to be a bit “orpahned”, not sure it needs to be there]

Hong Kong International Tournament – 28 December to 1 January

British Lacrosse has accepted an invitation to send both men’s and women’s sixes teams to represent Great Britain in the Hong Kong Super Sixes international tournament in December 2023.

This has given us a clear short term focus as we restart the British Lacrosse women’s sixes team programme and begin our preparations for the 2025 World Games in Cheng Du, China.

The below programme of dates (August to December) has been put together after consultation with national teams. We are very keen to work in harmony with each home country, and to avoid duplication and potential player overload.

Dates:
August 12 & 13: Trials Tournament
September 9 & 10: Season Launch
24 September (Sunday): Training
5 November (Sunday): joint training with BL Men’s team.
9 & 10 December: Final training
26 December – 1 January – HK Super Sixes (you can extend your travel dates if you wish)

Some key points:

  • The costs of flights and accommodation for this tournament are being heavily subsidised to help make the trip affordable
  • We will be taking a squad of 12 players to Hong Kong
  • Following our initial trials / tournament weekend in August we will be looking to select a women’s training squad of 24 to 28 players.
  • 2022 World Games training squad members will be automatically invited, although we are aware of a number of players who have retired, are injured or currently giving priority to family / career / education matters. So please could all players confirm their availability / interest in being involved via the Expression of Interest Form, even if NOT available for the HK tournament. Alternatively, you can email womenscoach@britishlacrosse.org. We would love to hear any individual retirement news to be able to celebrate previous contributions to the team on social media.
  • From those players registering their interest, we will invite around 42 to take part in the initial trials / tournament weekend. We recognise the short notice ahead of that weekend, and so there will be some flexibility applied for any players who already have commitments on those dates. Attending for just one of the two days, for example.
  • BL staff team: Phil Collier (Head Coach), Kate Nelson-Lee (Manager), Ailsa Stott (Asst Coach), Andy Jones (Physio), Rich Lalor (S&C), Erica Erb (Coaching Asst)

These are exciting times for lacrosse as the game continues to grow across the world. I look forward to hearing from those players who are keen to be involved with one of the top four women’s sixes teams in the world as we follow the Olympic dream.

Expressions of interest will be accepted until 28th July  with invitations to the trials/tournament weekend extended on August 3.

We want selection to be an open process, and so any eligible players (see Selection Policy) are invited to submit an application / register their interest using this link or the QR code below
