Lacrosse for all

Worth School

As part of our programme to promote lacrosse to a wider audience at Worth, all year groups are taking part in the sport this term as part of our Worth Community Trophy competition.

Lacrosse at Worth is growing at a fast rate under the guidance of David McColl, a Level 2 coach and umpire who has coached on the England Lacrosse talent pathway and who is the lead for development at SEWLA (South East Women’s Lacrosse Association).

The Worth Community Trophy was introduced this year as a new approach to internal sport at Worth. By allocating all pupils in the School to one of six teams, rather than competing in Houses, it addresses the imbalance in the number of pupils in different year groups in Houses and offers greater opportunities for participation.

Points accrued in various internal sporting competitions, as well as Sports Day, count towards the final scores in the Worth Community Trophy at the end of the academic year. During the past two weeks, pupils have been taking part in lacrosse matches, which has allowed many of them to try the sport for the first time.

Here are some pictures from last week’s Junior matches. Inters and Seniors matches have also been taking place.
