Lacrosse is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing sports! The game is a fast, energetic, contact sport commonly played in North America. Originating in the 12th century, it was modernised by colonists in the 1700 to reflect the game we see today. The aerial ball and stick game has gained popularity at Westlake Girls since its introduction. The school has one team and currently trains weekly on Tuesdays then competes against other schools that also enjoy the physically demanding sport on Thursdays after school in Term 2 & 3.

Lacrosse is not a familiar sport therefore we offer Lacrosse as a JUST PLAY sport which teaches students how to play it prior to trials in March. The “Have a Go” module is 4 weeks long and led by the Premier Team players. To register for Just Play, go to ALL YEAR SPORTS.


For more information, or to register for this activity, please go to “CLIPBOARD”. It is a NEW platform to view All Westlake Girls Sports and it is located on the Student and Parent Portals or just contact the Lacrosse Manager.

In the unlikely event a school trip is cancelled either by the school, a third party, or through extenuating circumstances, WGHS will endeavour to seek a refund of any deposit or full payment paid to an external party (such as flights or accommodation) on behalf of our students. Please note there may be situations where external parties are legally entitled to retain partial or full payment – in the case of a late cancellation, or binding agreement terms, for instance. In these situations, WGHS agrees to recover as much of the cost as practicable, however the school is not liable if a full refund is unattainable.
