We are a fun, sociable and relaxed club, if you can't commit much time but still want to come along every so often that's fine. Mixed Lacrosse is a fast paced, non contact sport played with both men and women on a team, where you use a stick, known as a crosse, to throw a hard rubber ball, about the size of a tennis ball, between players and attempt to get it in the opponent's goal.
We train every Thursday evening 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Wide Lane and have three teams, one for experienced players, one for intermediate players and one for beginners, that play matches most Sunday afternoons.
Wednesday night, like for most AU clubs, is socials night! Our socials team provide a regular mix of fantastic events from your standard club night to fancy dinners and balls and don't forget huge bar crawls with our good friends from Men's and Ladies Lacrosse! There's something for everyone at Mixed Lacrosse, whether you're the ultra competitive sporty type, far more socially minded, or anything in-between.
For more information and for details about our taster session we'll be at the Bunfight or you can join our Facebook group now and we'll answer any questions you have. Finally, don't be afraid to join if you've missed the Bunfight or taster session, new recruits are welcome throughout the year.

Lacrosse is a full contact team sport which originated as a Native American war game. These days it is the fastest game on two legs. We love our sport; it is blisteringly fast and can be brutally unforgiving but there is no other sport on the planet that will ever give you the same adrenaline rush as when you get on that lacrosse field. That said our team is an eclectic mix of players from all over the country and of every body shape and fitness level imaginable. Becoming a Trident needs no experience, most of our players had never held a Lacrosse stick before they came to us but trust us, you pick it up fast. Being a Trident is also about more than just lacrosse, we go out on a weekly basis for social nights and go on tour to mainland Europe every year, these are guaranteed to create some of the best memories of University you will have. Training times Monday: 8pm-10pm, Wide Lane Grids Thursday: 8pm-10pm, Wide Lane Sand AstroFriday: 8pm-10pm, Wide Lane Rubber Crumb No experience or equipment necessary and newcomers are welcome any time but a sense of humour and a lack of fear are essential.
