Congratulations to Altona Lacrosse Club for being named as a finalist for the 2018 Victorian Sport Awards. The club was nominatedfor its outstanding work during the 2018 ALA U15 National Tournament.

Through the hard work of the club and group of volunteers
the largest U15 National Lacrosse Tournament held in Australia was a massive success! The event is one of four finalists for theVicSport "My Sport Live Victorian Community Sporting Event of the Year" category.

The tournament is up against 3 other events including: Tennis Victoria Country Week, Melbourne International 3 Day Event - MI3DE (equestrian) and The Victorian Senior Aboriginal Football and Netball Carnival (The Carnival).

From the VicSport page: "Altona Lacrosse Club hosted the Australian Lacrosse Association Under 15 National Tournament in October 2018. This was the biggest event in its history, attracting 19 teams from Australia and New Zealand. For the volunteers, the amount of work done was enormous with the event running  for seven days. The event focuses on upskilling junior players and allowing them to test themselves in a large event environment. As it is a tournament and not a state team championship, more teams can enter and therefore more juniors can participate. It doesn't just impact growth in Lacrosse but also in  member retention and promotion for the club."

The winner will be revealed at the VicSport Awards Night at Marvel Stadium on Wednesday, 20 February. The event is scheduled to kick off at 6pm with the awards component beginning at 7pm. For more information regarding the night and for tickets please visit the VicSport website.
