The Lacrosse Club currently supports three competitive Women’s squads and one Men’s squad, all of whom compete in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Championship.
Being a part of a sports team at St Andrews is a fantastic opportunity to create life-long friends and memories. The Lacrosse Club supports inclusivity of all students and playing levels, and runs various events at the beginning of each year to welcome new players.
Founded in 2006, the Women’s Lacrosse Team has developed to encompass opportunities for all levels of player. Whether you have been playing lacrosse forever or you are picking up a stick for the first time, there is a place for you at Saints Lacrosse.
Women’s 1st and 2nd Team Squads
The Women’s 1st and 2nd Teams currently compete in the top tier in Scotland – BUCS Scottish 1A league. Squads are picked at the start of the year through team trials, and players are expected to commit 5-6 hours a week alongside Wednesday fixtures.
Women’s 3rd Team and Development Squad
The Women’s 3rd Team offers a more relaxed playing experience, with players required to attend only one training session per week, alongside the weekend fixtures. This coming year the 3rd Team will compete in BUCS Scottish 2A for the first time.
Men’s 1st Team
The Men’s Lacrosse Team competes in BUCS Scottish Tier 1 on Wednesdays, alongside Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Edinburgh.
The squad is open to all playing abilities and no-one is ever excluded or cut from the team. Practice/shootaround takes place once a week on Sundays, but the team often organises additional recreational games of basketball to keep cardio fitness up.
The give-it-a-go session at the start of the year in Orientation Week is open to all and the team encourages players of any level to turn up and try across.
