Performance Women's Lacrosse
Performance Lacrosse (Women's)
Lacrosse players studying at the University of Nottingham join one of the UK's largest university lacrosse programmes, competing at the top level of British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues.
Our lacrosse facilities for students are extensive; our teams train on a purpose-built 3G pitch opened in 2015 at our Jubilee Campus sports centre and performance facilities at the new £40 million David Ross Sports Village include a High Performance Zone and Sports Injury Clinic. Combined with an international-level coaching team and professional support staff, the programme aims to support each player to reach their full potential.
Lacrosse at The University of Nottingham
Our women's lacrosse programme is led by England Senior Midfield player Claire Faram, a Loughbrough University graduate who represented the university in BUCS. Claire has represented England for 6 years and represented Great Britain at the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland. She also coached at Benenden School for 4 years from 2013-2017, where they won the National Schools Championship in 2016.
Claire is supported by an assistant coach, Molly Deykin, a University of Birmingham graduate who also represented the university in BUCS, in which they achieved BUCS Silver in the 2015 Cup. Molly is also Head Coach of Metro Girls Lacrosse, based in Manchester, which travels to Maryland in America to play teams over there every year.
