The European Lacrosse Championships are coming up this Summer in Amsterdam, and even if you aren’t on a European National Team, you can still go, check out the games, and get a TON of lacrosse in for yourself. The EC12 will obviously only feature Euro National Sides, but because lacrosse is a community game, there will ALSO be a Festival taking place where both Men’s and Women’s Club teams can compete. This is a great chance to see some great lacrosse in Europe, and also play.
The chances of me going to Amsterdam for this and playing in the Festival are high to quite high. Full info from the EC12 group is below:
