Membership fees are £130. Memberships purchased at any point during the academic year are only valid until the end of term 3.
All players who represent the club in BUCS will need to buy a playing shirt, and shorts when they join (the cost of the shirt is subsidised by the department), which will then be theirs to keep. Lacrosse equipment will be loaned from the club for a period of a season (£20 deposit).
These items are all purchasable from Lee Westwood Sports Centre on Clifton Campus.
We offer bursaries for talented lacrosse players. We welcome applications from all players, which will then be assessed for suitability for a scholarship award. Further details on scholarships, including how to apply.
