FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS, THE SENIOR GIRLS IN CHRIST COLLEGE WILL BE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO RECEIVE COACHING SESSIONS FROM THE WELSH LACROSSE COACH.
For the next two weeks, Christ College girls in years 9-13, are lucky enough to be receiving four coaching sessions from Welsh Lacrosse Coach Anthony Higginson.
For the majority, this will be their first experience of Lacrosse and another sport to add to the already multi-faceted activities list here at Christ College Brecon. Unlike all the other sports on offer to girls here at Christ College, Lacrosse involves some contact, which will no doubt appeal to the girls as it is ‘something quite different’!
Despite being an exhilarating sport, Lacrosse is currently unrepresented in schools in Wales with very few offering Lacrosse. Welsh Lacrosse are keen to spread the sport so if all goes well and the girls are keen to continue playing Lacrosse next year. It is hoped that Christ College can become an Ambassador School for Lacrosse in the local area.
The sessions are running from 4-6pm for years 9-13, and even St Nicholas House are having a taster session of pop lacrosse next week!
