On Tuesday 26th June, a group of LVI (Year 12) girls visited Priestley Primary School in Calne to run taster lessons in lacrosse. Keen to share their love of the sport and engage with the local community, this was a student-led initiative which saw the girls design a 30-minute workshop which introduced students to the skills needed to play lacrosse.
It was a gloriously sunny afternoon and the girls really enjoyed meeting the Priestley pupils who were enthusiastic and eager to learn. The workshop was delivered to four different year groups (Year 3 to Year 6) and included a brief overview of what lacrosse is, where it is played, a warm-up as well as specific lacrosse skills before ending up with competitive lacrosse relay races. The sessions were fast-paced and the girls were impressed at how quickly the children picked up something which was completely new to them.
