Phase 3:  LACROSSE SCOTLAND GUIDELINES – Key Dates for Sport (effective 10th July)



Effective from: 10 JULY 2020

Be aware guidance can change and restrictions may be reintroduced – ensure you have checked the latest version of our Covid-19 guidance.

The guidance below has been produced to allow a phased return to Lacrosse in Scotland, where practice individually or games with members of your household or between members of two households can take place. All players and clubs have a responsibility to take care of themselves and their members. We are working hard with sportscotland and the Scottish Government on moving to the next phases and will keep members up to date as soon as we know the next policies.

Please refer to the Lacrosse Scotland website and social media for further updates and enjoy getting back on the field or in the box safely and with consideration to others around you.
