How Old Will You Be in 2014

Postby S_24_LAX Wed Jul 20, 2011 5:39 pm

Honest question - honest answers please.

If you are going to be 35 or even much older then you may well be interested in the following

The South Section of England Lions Lacrosse is being launched targetted at players over the age of 35 in 2014 who fancy participating in the Denver games.

Further details on the Lions can be found at www.englandlionslacrosse.co.uk

For further information please email me at southlionslax@gmail.com

Look forward to hearing from you

Honest answer? Too Old! But I'll be there!

Great idea Ian and count me in. We should all help Ian get this off the ground. We both played for the Lions in Manchester and it was brilliant. The only downside was travelling to Manchester for training sessions....if we get a core of players in the south we can obviously train without the burden of an eight hour round trip and massive petrol costs. Having a drink/social after the sessions will also be a tad easier!

45 now and still catching the young ens. Admittedly over very short distances. Nice job Ian. I am receiving the updates from the Lions.
I especially liked one quote, and I paraphrase, We hold the training in the north because mostly northern players attend. ?
I am up for southern oldies training. And tempted by the trip.

I was old enough for Manchester 2010 so will still be old enough in 2014. Manchester was great even though I was semi-injured and not playing my best lacrosse.

Still in the process of collating all the names - with clubs not really getting back together until now the old grapevine of information flow is just starting to get going.
For example half the Bath Eights team are inthe right age bracket but they didn't know anything about it.

There looks like there is a Masters tournament being run alongside the European Championships in Holland next year.

Watch this space for more updates.

There most definitely IS a Festival running alongside the Euros in Amsterdam next year.

The EC12 Festival has the potential to be even bigger than Manchester as there are 14 artificial turf pitches at the venue (The Amsterdam & Bandy Hockey Club) in Amsterdamse Bos (1000 hectare public wood & parkland) next door to Schipol Airport. Camping is an option but there are plenty of cheap hotels nearby. Euros are combined men's & women's this time so the concept of upto 10 days camping in Amsterdam with a men's & women's lacrosse tournament on cannot be a difficult sell! Tickets will probably have to be rationed out!
