The Burnside Lacrosse community encourages players’ families to join in our sporting and social activities on training nights and game days.

Players have the opportunity to try out for selection in the South Australian and Australian teams.  Opportunities exist to trial for selection in State Development programs and State teams for girls and boys in u15s, u17s, and u18s and for senior men and women  annually. 


National training and selection programs for Australian teams for men’s and women’s u19s, u23s, and seniors occur on a four-year cycle.


Burnside Lacrosse Club also supports junior teams in local schools and runs training and development programs for schools who wish to introduce their students to the amazing sport of lacrosse.  

While the primary focus revolves around the main field lacrosse season from April to September, differing formats of lacrosse including Box Lacrosse, Junior and Senior indoor competitions, sofcrosse, University and IGSSA competitions offer opportunities to enjoy lacrosse year round.

**  The International Governing body for Lacrosse - called the FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse) publishes an annual list of Women's lacrosse sticks and pocket requirements that are 'Legal' to use Internationally.  These are a requirement at some competition levels.  As different rules are used by US college / University NCAA leagues, online stores do not always provide clear compliance information.  Please speak to a coach or club official for further information.
