Welcome to the Eagles Lacrosse Club
The West Torrens Lacrosse Club was one of the founding clubs in the South Australian Lacrosse Association and we have a long and proud tradition of excellence. Having been established in 1914, this year we are celebrating our 100th year anniversary.
Now known as the Eagles Lacrosse Club, we offer a welcoming family friendly environment that provides every player the opportunity to develop to their full potential. We also offer opportunities for people to get involved off the field in roles such as coaching, umpiring, team management and club officiating roles.

Lacrosse is played in nearly 40 countries around the world and is the fastest growing sport in North America. In Australia, Lacrosse is played nationally and in SA there are 11 clubs. The representative body is Lacrosse SA and our season runs from April to September.
Junior matches are played on Saturday mornings whilst seniors play on Saturday afternoons. Girls and women's lacrosse is a non contact sport as is juniors boys up until the age of 12. Lacrosse is a fast paced, skillful sport which combines speed, agility, teamwork and strategy. Above all it is great fun!
Congratulations to Izzy Larwood, Julia Rajkovich, Ellie Willsmore and Georgia Groves for playing in the U15 state team. The girls travelled to Perth in late September and competed against other states from Australia, finishing in 4th place. Well done girls!
