Women's Lacrosse World Cup 2017

ENGLAND GET THE BRONZE AT THE RATHBONES WOMEN’S LACROSSE WORLD CUP USA CROWNED WORLD CHAMPIONS AGAIN

               USA

 

For two weeks in Guildford, Surrey, English Lacrosse hosted the Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Cup, 25 nations attended, USA beat Canada in the final and England beat Australia for the bronze (in sudden death overtime having been 4 goals down at one stage).

 

For Bath, Nik Roberts, as part of his ELA duties was on site from Sunday the 9th right the way through to Sunday the 23rd July. The days for the staff were long but totally enjoyable, to see new countries do well, some countries surprise (Italy and Israel for instance) was fantastic, many new friends made etc etc

Aside from putting goals up, banging in poles for catch nets and general labour tasks, Nik was also given one of the announcer jobs on Pitch 2. This involved not only putting out messages and announcing the National Anthems, but introducing every player and official, which gave some interesting tongue twisters, particularly Dutch, Korean, Latvian and Chinese; even some of the “English” names proved a tad interesting.

From Bath’s point of view there was quite a bit of interest around, old players were present, some famous names and names some older Bath players would remember came out of the woodwork.

Being Pitch side, Nik managed to get some interesting photos, which are now in the album on the Bath Lacrosse facebook page (including the after parties, which went well into the wee small hours). CLICK TO SEE

English Lacrosse Player Registration

English Lacrosse is introducing a new registration scheme from this season.

All Players/Coaches/Refereees/Umpires are required to register with the National Governing Body each year.

This is a yearly requirement, players already registerred in the old system should of by now received an email from English Lacrosse titled "Individual Registration - Lacrosse Season 2016/17". It is important that you read and action this BEFORE the Bath Eights.

From this season, starting on 1st September 2016, you are required to register with English Lacrosse before you can play. This has an associated cost of £30 for Seniors and £15 for Juniors/Students. As we understand it, there will be checks being carried out with the individual being held... responsible and club being held accountable.

Registration takes 5 minutes to complete and payment is by debit/credit card. The link below is where you need to be.


http://register.englishlacrosse.co.uk/registration


Please report successful registration (including payment ref #) to the club captain and Nik Roberts who needs to keep a list of who is/isn't eligible to play.

 

Please note, those that are "multi skilled" ie players and coaches etc need only register once.

Everyone has plenty of time to register now before the Eights, so there will be no excuse.

 

SEMLA Flags finals

Despite Bath LC being absent from the Flags finals this year, the club was well represented on other teams. Some ex layers at other clubs and some at University.
