Pop Lacrosse for Local Schools
The Junior Sports Programme have introduced a new equipment loan scheme to boost development of lacrosse as a junior sports activity in Nottinghamshire.
We are working with Nottingham Lacrosse and English Lacrosse Association to extend the sport into junior schools in the East Midlands by training instructors and providing loan equipment for use by schools.
The programme also allows schools to test extending their sports curriculum without the need to incur expense of teacher coaching or buying new equipment.
Pop Lacrosse has been played in Nottinghamshire for many years. The Junior Sports Programme's new scheme is enabling 8 other local schools to play the game with 15 teachers participating in a coaching course.
A tournament for participating schools is being arranged for this summer, following which we will be extending the scheme in Lincolnshire.
