Lacrosse is one of the main winter sports at Sherborne Girls and is played throughout the autumn and spring terms.
Players receive the highest level of coaching with two former national standard players coaching to provide the most up-to-date techniques and strategies. With an emphasis on developing an agile, fast athlete that has a strong skill set with creative flair. We aim to develop thinking players that can make game-related decisions under pressure.
