Statement from Belgium Lacrosse
Belgium Lacrosse is proud to announce that Chris Webborn has been chosen to lead both women's senior and U19 programs as Head Coach from September 2020 🥍
Chris has been involved in Lacrosse since 2005 and coaching since 2009. As a former head of lacrosse at Uppingham school, De Montfort University and Loughborough University, he will elevate the level of lacrosse for women in Belgium and share his knowledge with players, assistant coaches and team managers.
The programs are, however, already moving forward by using Belgian coaches supervised by the BLF to prepare our girls to international standards and Chris' arrival.
“I’m very pleased and excited to be taken on as Head coach of Team Belgium from September 2020. There is a lot of work to be done and I feel these girls are ready to take their game to the next level and I feel I can get them there too. I can’t wait to begin work with them!” - Chris Webborn
