Following the Victorian State Government's 13 May, 24 May, and 14 June announcements of a gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions and Lacrosse Victoria's updated  Return to Lacrosse Training Conditions of 19 June, Williamstown Lacrosse Club is pleased to confirm that WLC’s updated framework for a limited return to training has now been approved by Lacrosse Victoria and Hobsons Bay City Council.  

The WLC COVID-19 Working Group has been working closely with Lacrosse Victoria (LV), Hobsons Bay City Council (HBCC), our Coaches, Senior & Junior Co-Ordinators, and the WLC Committee to formulate WLC’s framework for a return to training in compliance with the LV, Victorian State Government and HBCC approved requirements.  

Senior Training commenced Thursday 28th May at the Fearon Reserve, Williamstown and will continue on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s starting at 6.30pm. Anybody interested in attending training should email Darren.Gibson@macquarie.com to confirm their attendance.

Junior Training: Under 15 and Under 17 training resumed Tuesday 2nd June, while Under 11 and U13s commenced 9th June at the Fearon Reserve. All players interested in attending training should email their coach dsorr7@gmail.com (U11s), Sean_Clarke@outlook.com (U13 & U15) or Kade.t.Robinson@gmail.com (U17) to confirm their attendance.

From 23rd June:

  • Junior Players (and Seniors Players 18 years and younger) are permitted to resume full contact training in groups of 20, subject to adhering to the conditions set out in this Return to Training Conditions Notice No. 3
  • Training for all players 19 years or older will continue to be non-contact, in groups of 20 and social distancing measures of 1.5m must be in practice at all times.

Return to Play:

  • Junior Competition: LV has announced Junior Competition will commence 11th July. We are working with LV and HBCC and hope to be in a position to announce our Return to Play framework shortly, in addition to providing further details of the Junior fixtures and Players Fees.
  • Senior Competition: LV has announced Senior Competition is expected to commence 26th July with the season expected to conclude on 17th October, although the commencement of Senior competition and contact training remains subject to confirmation from the State Government.

Noting that the COVID-19 continues to evolve, we will provide regular updates to all members so please continue to check the WLC website, TeamApp and Facebook page.

Please click on the WLC RETURN TO TRAINING NOTICE No.3 attachment below for full details of WLC's updated return to training framework. 


Anyone intending on returning to WLC training must read and understand LV’s Return to Lacrosse Training Conditions prior to attending training. These conditions must be read in conjunction with WLC's “RETURN TO TRAINING NOTICE No.3" attached.  Both of LV and WLC's conditions contain vital information for all participants to adhere to in order to return to training in a manner which safeguards the health and wellbeing of our members and the community more broadly.

It is critical that everyone attending training strictly adhere to these conditions as a failure to do so could result in HBCC removing access to facilities.  Additionally, non-compliance could result in legal and financial penalties that may be levied on the club and any individual in breach of the conditions.
