Play Lax for Luxembourg!
Luxembourg Lacrosse is looking for eligible players to compete with their team at the European Championships in Wroclaw, Poland in 2020. This will be the second tournament of the team overall, having recently participated at the 2018 World Championship in Netanya where the team played in the opening game.
Players of all experience levels are welcome to join the team in their 15 months preparation cycle for the tournament.
Eligibility requirements include a Luxembourgish passport, with some exceptions available – this can be clarified shortly after registration.
The head coach is Mr. Bruce Casagrande (Wooster, NYIT, Denver, Stony Brook, Vermont), supported by several Europe based assistant coaches (Maiah Barlett, SC 1880 Frankfurt; T. Hatton, London Raptors, R. Ingham Clark, Stowe/Camden Capybaras London).
The core objective of the team is to maximize individual and collective improvement. Inexperienced players are, however, very much welcome and 100% encouraged to join.
Experienced players, especially those not resident to Luxembourg, will have the opportunity to help younger or newer players to progress. Non-resident players will be supported when visiting where possible, e.g. by means of finding accommodation with team mates during stays in Luxembourg.
Every player’s commitment will include:
– attending camps and preparation games in Luxembourg and possibly wider Europe,
– making own contributions to the team, which will include financial contributions,
– carrying out own preparation diligently and meeting fitness requirements (tailored to individual level of capability)
All requirements will accommodate personal constraints, e.g. exams, work limitations, etc. as much as possible.
The team will prepare and compete with medical support, positional coaches and strength/conditioning coaching.
