The Bendigo Under 11's are made up of junior players from across Bendigo, who have played in the Under 12 Bendigo Summer Lacrosse Competition.  This Competition was held during February and March.

There were a total of 12 eligible players, but only 9 could commit to playing on Saturday 30th May. They have been training weekly in preparation for the Lightning Carnival.  Most of the players will forego their winter sport commitments; such as Netball, Football or Soccer.  This shows how much they enjoy lacrosse and look forward to representing Bendigo against the Melbourne teams.

This is the very first Bendigo junior team, representing the city and surrounds, competing in a Lacrosse Victoria Competition.  It is a mixed team of boys and girls ranging from 8 to 11 years old. Most have played no more than ten games in the Bendigo Junior Competition and are developing steadily every time they pick up a lacrosse stick.

These players have had the opportunity to select a nickname for their team.  There were several names nominated and three names were selected by the players to be forwarded onto the Club Committee to vote upon.  The Under 11 Bendigo team will be called the Sparrowhawks.

The Bendigo Sparrowhawks can't wait to see you all at Altona!
