Hi All,

They have all made great improvements in their skills and its fantastic to see the fun they are having.

Junior Presentation:

Saturday 14th September from approx. 10:30.
Come down to the club to celebrate the 2019 season, friendships and as always bring your stick. We will see if we can get a stick in a few parents hands and get a game going.
I’m also hoping to get the BBQ hired up.

SILL:

Southern Indoor Lacrosse League.
This is an indoor competition – over 7 weeks from approx. Nov – mid Dec (dates to be finalised but likely start date 6th Nov, last game 18thDec)
Held Monash Caulfield Campus on Wednesday night.
Usually U11 (play approx. 6:30), U13 (play approx. 7:15) and U15ish (play approx. 8:00) team.
Game is played non-contact with red mod crosse ball. Perfect to practice dodging, weaving, passing and some sneaky tactics.

PACE Lacrosse:

PACE Lacrosse is a program which has run for last couple of years over summer. It’s back again this summer. Dates are being finalised. I will send out more information as soon as I receive, so if interested please let me know.

Malvern’s First Quick Stix Invade
program completed its final session Thursday 22nd August. The two girls playing have had a fantastic time, learning lacrosse and making new friends. Each week they have stayed at the club for at least an hour or so running around and playing with U11’s. Big Thanks to Emma Davie, Lachlan Bown and Lachlan Marriott who have been running the program.
