  1. Williamstown Lacrosse Club 2021 Return to Lacrosse Conditions

Anyone attending a WLC training session must read and understand LV’s 2021 Return to Lacrosse Conditions. These conditions must be read in conjunction with 2021 WLC Notice to All Players, Parents, & Spectators set out in the attachment below, as they contain vital information for all WLC participants to adhere to in order to return to lacrosse from 2nd February 2021.

In order to safeguard 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 serious health implications, while legal and financial penalties may be levied on the club and any individual if they are in breach.

Noting the ongoing and evolving COVID-19 situation, we ask members to keep a lookout for updates, which will be posted via the WLC website, TeamApp, and Facebook page.

28 January 2021

Like most organisations in 2020, Williamstown Lacrosse Club experienced a very unusual and tough year with no lacrosse or social activities being possible. That said, and consistent with our long term strategy, WLC is keen to bounce back in 2021 to again play a major role for lacrosse in Australia and more importantly within Victoria. As a club, we are focused on growing lacrosse and ensuring we lead from the front in all aspects whilst we continue our success on and off the field.

In 2021 Williamstown Lacrosse Club wants to continue to GROW THE GAME and raise the bar with our Lacrosse development.
We want to continue to assist with the development in local schools and our within our community via clinics and lacrosse camps.

The 100 CLUB was created five years ago and has been a vital part of achieving this goal. The 100 CLUB allows us to assist our juniors and raise the funds needed for the club to attract juniors from local schools and provide the kids in our community with the opportunity to begin their sporting journey via Lacrosse with the Williamstown Lacrosse Club.

As a member of the Williamstown Lacrosse Club family, we would like to invite you to be part of the annual ‘100 CLUB’ and as a member, you will receive the following:

– Complimentary first drink each Saturday (Tap Beer, Wine or Soft Drink)
– Acknowledgment of contribution on the 100 CLUB honour board
– Invitation to a Game Day BBQ during the season

Thank you for taking the time to read the above invitation for the proposed 100 CLUB.

If you wish to join the 100 CLUB or know someone who may wish to contribute you can make your donation to the clubs bank account (Please reference your Name and 100 Club).
