For the past two the team has returned the highest amount of BUCS points for the university.

We also have further oppurtunity for competiton in the Conference Cup.
And of course our most exciting game of the year, VARSITY! This year it will be hosted at keele university. Our aim is to retain the title that we won last year.
Due to the rolling subsitution nature of lacrosse every player on the team gets game time this in turn means that every fresher has the same oppurtunities as returning players
Staffs Uni Lacrosse has been affilliated with City of Stoke Lacrosse for the last three years. This has enabled current and past players to develop their game by competeing against teams who have played the sport for many years.
So for those who want to continue there is an oppurtunity to learn from players of greater skill through the club.
