University of Leicester Lacrosse Club - ULLAX
Lacrosse is an exciting, energetic team sport that is relatively new to the UK. The University of Leicester has a mixed lacrosse club (ULLAX) which has women’s, men’s and mixed teams of different levels of ability.
ULLAX compete in the Midlands BUCS league; with two Men’s teams and 2 women’s teams competing. The club has development teams which help new players become confident in the sport and begin with playing friendly games. ULLAX also has a social mixed team (men and women), which is great to play as a whole club and play other universities in a non-league setting.
Lacrosse is not as well known in the UK so as a club we work hard to develop all players; whether experienced or new to the sport. For this reason, we don’t hold trials and welcome all to our club. Whilst developing Lacrosse skills with our experienced coaches; ULLAX also offers opportunities for members to undertake referring courses and support coaching qualifications. ULLAX develops our members with leadership opportunities, with our committee positions open every year for new appointees.
ULLAX is one of the largest mixed clubs at the University of Leicester so is great to meet new people and enjoy our weekly socials. These themed socials lead to the Student Union (O2 Leicester). ULLAX hold annual events, including our Alumni match and dinner which is great for graduated members to return, meet new members and show they’re always part of the club. All our social events including our annual tour to Croatia helps the club become so well knitted.
If you are interested in joining our club follow our social media accounts, meet us at fresher’s fair and please feel free to get in contact with us.
