Luxembourg Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport in the Grand Duchy, has announced that it is launching “LacrosseFit” for anyone looking to get fit and try a new sport, starting 4 May 2021.
Lacrosse is a team sport played with a stick and a ball with its origins in a tribal game played by the indigenous people of North America since the 17th century.
LacrosseFit is a standardised exercise and strengthening programme designed to target fitness development while discovering the sport of lacrosse with coaches and players from Luxembourg's national team. The programme will address different muscle groups and body areas improving conditioning, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic situation has restricted a lot of physical activity for everyone, decreasing fitness levels and chances to socialise while playing a sport. It will follow all COVID-19 rules of social distancing and specific conditions for sporting activities laid down by the government.
Participants pay €60 for the programme but have a money back guarantee if they do not like the sessions and want to quit at any time by handing back the lacrosse stick.
Starting 4 May 2021, LacrosseFit will have twelve training sessions over six weeks, i.e. two sessions per week on Tuesdays in Weimerskirch and Fridays at Stade Boy Konen in Cessange, from 18:00 to 19:00 on both days.
