Senior Women’s Assistant Coach Appointment

Senior Women’s Assistant Coach

Lacrosse Scotland is delighted to announce that Shelby Davis will be joining the Senior Women’s Squad as their new Defensive Assistant Coach, alongside newly appointed Head Coach, Ailsa Stott. Shelby brings a wealth of lacrosse experience, both as a player and coach. As a player, she has represented both D1 school, Old Dominion University, taking on the captaincy in her senior year, and Durham University, where she performed a dual role as player-coach, leading the team to a BUCS Championship title in 2016.  

Shelby has coached lacrosse for over 10 years; in her native USA, in England, and most recently in Germany, where she now lives. She started coaching whilst at High School and University, after which she moved to England to work as an SCO at Stowe School, whilst also acting as the Defensive Assistant Coach for the U17/19 England Development Team and the Head Coach for the SE U15 Regional Team. For the last 4 years Shelby has been the Head Coach of the German National Team, where she has done a fantastic job growing the game at both the regional and national level, alongside developing the German National programme which has gone from strength to strength under her leadership.

I am absolutely delighted that Shelby Davis will be joining our new Scotland Senior Women’s coaching and management team. Shelby is a fantastic lacrosse coach and very highly regarded on the European lacrosse scene. I’m looking forward to working with her to bring the best out of our young and exciting squad in build up to the World Championship in 2021


Head Coach Ailsa Stott

I am extremely excited to take on this role for Lacrosse Scotland. Scotland has a young talented group of players, and I am looking forward to continuing to build on the admirable foundation that Dave Simpson, Lauren Goerz and the rest of their coaching team have established over the past years for the senior team and the programme! I am thrilled to work with Ailsa and begin the team’s journey towards the World Championship in 2021. There is always room for growth as a player and a coach – I cannot wait to help provide an environment for players to develop in Scotland
