U23 Australian Women's Lacrosse Team - 2013 ASPAC Championship
2013 gives you this opportunity of a life-time to compete in your first Australian Team against young women of your own age. (Birthdays between 2 June 1990 and 20 June 1995).
Australia will join teams from Japan, Korea, China, USA West, Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore in the fifth Asia Pacific Championship in Beijing, China from 20-29 June. The 2013 ASPAC's will be the first ever international event to be hosted by China, whose players are very new to the game, and in fact their National Association is just over a year old! Apart from Japan, the other Asian countries have limited international experience, but it is great that they are building their programs and spreading the game in the region! South Korea and Hong Kong competed in 2011. The 2013 ASPAX women's and men's competition will run alongside each other.
In the 2011 ASPAC final, Japan defeated Australia 20-6. Some highlights of the final available at
The team is also schedule to compete in the Friendship Games in Japan en route to China. Games will include a University team and the Japan National Women's team.
Those of you who are thinking about participating will have played at club level, and perhaps in interstate competition at under-age events - think about all those good times, the camaraderie, the opportunities you learned and how you developed as not only a lacrosse players, but also a person - the fun you had improving your skills, playing with teammates, travelling, rooming together, visiting new places.
So now why not take that next step, and experience what it's like to play in another country with your teammates,be introduced to another culture, play the sport you love - and all whilst having fun along the way!!
Remember the biggest thing you can do is to embrace this unique experience whilst learning from amazing Australian coaches and developing your lacrosse.
There will be another training camp and the Down Under Cup tournament, prior to the team's departure - and then once you see the possibilities ahead of you the next step again will be just around the corner!!
Applications close on 28th February 2013 and further information is available on the website www.lacrosse.com
