Women's Development Squad

OULC’s Development Squad is aimed at beginners and inexperienced women’s players who want to give lacrosse a go in a friendly and relaxed environment, with the potential of joining the university women’s or mixed teams in the future. There is training twice a week, on Thursdays and Saturdays, where we will be teaching lacrosse rules and technique, running drills and playing games. We have friendly matches organised with the development squads of other universities, with one this term against Bath University on 30th November. This will be a great opportunity to gain valuable gameplay experience with other learning players.

 

All equipment is provided and cheap mouthguards can be bought from us at training. Come along if you are looking to try something new or are eager to pick up your old lacrosse stick again! Don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Dev Squad Secretaries, Tash Rix and Millie Liddell, if you have any questions.

 

Weekly training times (weeks 1-8): University Parks

Thursdays: 3-4pm 

Saturdays: 11am-12pm 

FAQ 

Q: How much are subs each year?

Subs vary each year depending on our sponsors and other factors. We aim to keep costs as low as possible however the subs for last year were ~£190 per person. Colleges will generally subsidise a good proportion of this cost. 

Q: What is the standard of the teams like? How difficult is it to make the team? 

All teams at Oxford are of a high standard, with all teams placing high within their leagues. It is very difficult to predict the standard each year. That being said, lots of players on the Men's 2s and Mixed 2s are beginners to lacrosse/ have only played a little before. Come to trials and preseason regardless of how much you've played before!

Q: When are trials? 

Trials for men's and women's take place on Sunday 11th October. More details will be revealed closer to the time. 

Q: Does OULC organise social events?

Yes! OULC is known for having one of the best social calendars in Oxford Sport. Most Wednesdays there will be a social, either with other sports teams or as team bonding. We have a whole club crewdate at the beginning of Michaelmas and our Christmas celebration - Laxmas. Each branch of the club also has its own end of season dinners at the end of Hilary.
