Fixtures

Our home ground is at Fairwood Playing Fields which are grass pitches that are just a short distance from the university.

We have BUCS matches most Wednesdays and once a year we play in varsity against Cardiff.

Socials

We have socials every Wednesday after matches that have various themes organised by our social secs. Previous themes have included Rubik's cube, anything but clothes, Noah's Ark and rave.

If you don't fancy playing lacrosse then join us as a social member for only £15! This gives you access to all our socials, including the sober ones and of course, you can buy the all-important stash!

COVID-19 Changes

We have had to make some changes to our club to ensure we are compliant with COVID-19 regulations. This has included the creation of a new Compliance Officer. Before all training, every player will have to complete a symptom declaration including details about symptoms and their details for Track and Trace. Each player will also be required to have a temperature check before entering the AstroTurf pitches. We are limited by Welsh Government guidelines to 30 people outdoors (Sport Swansea regulations are 15 people per ½ an AstroTurf) so we will be controlling the number of people coming to training throughout the week. Make sure you’re on our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/781741682631218) to be up to date about training logistics.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Live, love, lax
