As in most of the European countries, the lacrosse season in Italy is over. Both the Championship and Italian Cup have been concluded and, for the second consecutive year, Bocconi Sport team (from Milan) dominated the Italian scene.
Coach Cibe is back with his monthly update on Italy Lacrosse! I hope everyone is ready to lax and to follow Coach Cibe’s news from Italy. It’s shaping up to be another great month of Italian Lacrosse.
November has been a quiet month in Italy, the weather has been unusually sunny and warm, which is unexpected but great for playing lacrosse. It helped the Italian Championships see 4 very spectacular matches played this month.
The Italian Cup was played in Nettuno (Rome) on September 28th and 29th. Six teams (Bocconi Sport Team, Roma Leones, Red Hawks Merate, Phoenix Perugia, Torino Taurus and Bologna Sharks) brought lacrosse to Nettuno, the “town of baseball” in Italy, with a number of very intense and interesting matches (four games were concluded by sudden death overtime).
On September the 28th the new Italian lacrosse season begins with the Italian Cup and the collaboration between Lacrosse All Stars and Coach Cibe starts again. I hope everyone is ready to lax and to follow Coach Cibe’s news from Italy.
