U 15 2016 Premiers

Wednesday, 8th March 2017

2016 saw mostly a fresh wave of players step up to the under 15 age group for Williamstown Lacrosse Club, hot off their success of a strong season in the u13's the previous year. 

We started off the year with a pre-season trip to our sister club, Brighton in Adelaide. This was an extremely enjoyable experience for the boys to play against the top u15 teams in South Australia and make friendships that will last a long time. A big thanks to Darren Gibson and the dads who came across to help make the trip one to remember.

It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm and commitment to training and improving of each individual's game throughout the season, and it was rewarded on the field with a convincing grand final victory over Footscray. 

Chris and myself have to commend the unselfishness of all the players who offered to step up and fill in for the u17's during the season, which also allowed the boys who played u15's to get a good run on the park, as we had 19 boys to choose from every week in the u15 age group.

We congratulate our award winners,Brock Gourley, Shae Moate, Darcy Cave and Xavier Suares-Jury, and also the players picked in the Western Metro team, who won the National U15's Championship this October.

A big thank you to all of the parents who helped out during the season, you're commitment to the team helped Chris and I immensely, and also a big thank you to the committee who were able to get permits granted by Lacrosse Victoria to allow us to play all 19 boys in the grand final. 

I would like to finish off by congratulating the boys on another great season, it has been a pleasure for Chris and I to coach this group of fantastic young men.

Looking forward to going around again next year.
