Performance Men's Lacrosse

Why Nottingham?

With the overall aim to be the #1 destination for lacrosse playing student-athletes in the UK, the University of Nottingham has made strides to deliver against that objective.

The lacrosse facilities at UoN are extensive; our teams train on a purpose-built 3G pitch opened in 2015 at the Jubilee Campus sports centre and utilise performance facilities at the £40 million David Ross Sports Village including the High Performance Zone and Sports Injury Clinic. Other athlete provision includes: game-day GPS, video analysis, athlete well-being & other online tools to support performance, whilst balancing a student-life.

Fully supported by an international-level coaching team and professional support staff, the programme aims to provide the opportunity for teams to succeed, and enable each individual player to reach their full potential.
