If you haven’t heard, Lacrosse the Pond is a new program that gives recent collegiate lacrosse graduates from the United States the chance to complete a Master’s degree at a United Kingdom university while also continuing to play lacrosse at the university and club level in the UK. My Lacrosse the Pond Experience began during my last semester of college. Personally, while finishing up my senior year, I really had no clue what I really wanted to do following graduation. My lacrosse coach forwarded an email to the team’s seniors about a new program called Lacrosse the Pond that gave recent college graduates the opportunity to continue education abroad while continuing to play lacrosse. I had considered a variety of options following graduation but I decided to take a chance, alongside another teammate, to apply for the LTP program to work on my Master’s and play lacrosse in England.

Another great Master Class took place at the weekend, this time up in the North East of the country at Newcastle University. After driving through thick heavy fog on the way we were wondering what weather the North East would throw at us, however when we got there we were blessed with glorious sunshine. Around 40 guys in the club showed up on the day. Some guys had only been playing a year while others had been playing for the majority of their lives, but all of them came with an enormous amount of enthusiasm which was great to see. The energy of the session was fantastic even though it was apparent that a small number of them were still suffering from the night before….! We ran various stick work drills before splitting off into sections where the coaches broke down various basic aspects of the game. The coaching staff[…]
Exeter was a great university for us to launch our new Master Classes at…..we left sunny Manchester at 5am to heading down the M6 towards the delights of the south coast of England. Upon arrival it was great to see the amount of reinvestment going into the university. The athletic department was having a complete make over and new complexes and fields were being built all around campus. We delivered three different sessions in 4 hours; an hour for beginners, an hour for the second team and two hours for the 1st team. It was great to see so many new faces to our game and the amount of enthusiasm that came with them. The improvement was dramatic over the first few hours some of the newer players were really getting a grasp on what was happening and there sticks skills were improving ten fold. It was great to see[…]
