The German Lacrosse Association is looking for a head coach and several assistant coaches for the German U19 men’s national team �” all positions are on a voluntary basis. The German U19 men’s national team will participate in the U19 men’s world cup in Turku, Finland, in August 2012. Until then several try-out-camps and practice-camps will take place. The full camp schedule will be announced in the next few weeks. However, the next try-out camp will be held in Hamburg on the 26th and the 27th of August.

Requirements for the coaching positions:

* Several years of coaching experience in men’s or juniors’ (U19) lacrosse
* Availability in August 2012 (exact tournament dates have not been announced, yet)
* Language requirements: German OR English native speaker; English fluent
* International lacrosse coaching experience would be desirable

Evaluation process:

I am the DLaxV Director of Men’s Lacrosse and therefore I am responsible for the appointment of the U19 men’s national team coaches. So, please, send your application to wolfram.greb@dlaxv.de. Your application should include your resume and a cover letter concerning the reasons why you want to become a coach for the German U19 men’s lacrosse national team. I will then evaluate all applications together with the general manager of the team, who I will announce in the next few days. After that I will invite the best applicants to telephone interviews. The coaches of the U19 men’s national team will be nominated based on the result of these interviews.

It would be great if the whole coaching staff would already be complete by the time the next camp takes place. However, as the time frame until the next camp is very short and as the decision is a very crucial and important one, we will definitely not rush any decisions.

Kind regards,

Wolfram Greb
DLaxV Director of Men’s Lacrosse

German Women's National Tryouts9

On Friday 20th of February 24 girls of the German National Team squad made their way to Amsterdam to have friendly games against the Dutch National Team.

Saturday started with intense practice and in the afternoon the teams were on the field for their first game this year. Both teams played hard but fair and the German team won 16-8.

For the game on Sunday the team had different guidelines to concentrate on. Great teamwork led to a 12-8 win.

It was a great weekend taking the the team one step closer to the World Cup in Prague.
