Senior lacrosse is played at Victorian lacrosse clubs and at various levels to accommodate everyone from beginners to elite players. Whether you are interested in learning a new sport or you are an experienced player, join your local lacrosse club to make new friends, pick up new skills and become part of a supportive community.
Many Victorian universities have senior lacrosse teams where you can enjoy the social aspects and the benefits of sport including improved mental and physical well-being.
Lacrosse is a fast, fun and tactical team game played using lacrosse sticks and a ball. In senior lacrosse there are usually ten players per team on the field. Men's lacrosse is a contact sport requiring full protective gear while women's lacrosse is non-contact, requiring only mouthguards and eye goggles. Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports globally, and it is played in over 60 countries world-wide.
Lacrosse is all about hand-eye coordination and quick decision making. The object of the game is to outscore the opposing team; goals are scored by gaining possession of the ball and causing the ball to pass through the face of the goals.
Clubs participate in state competitions during the winter season, and during the off season players can take part in other formats of the game including indoor lacrosse and box lacrosse. Lacrosse clubs also offer pathways for ambitious senior players to compete in national lacrosse championships and at an international level.
