We are delighted to announce the appointment of Maggie Hughes as Head of the U19 Women's Programme. Hughes joined Wales Lacrosse in 2017 to launch the U19 Dragons Academy, completing the Pathway to the National Squad. Under her leadership, the programme has experienced unprecedented growth; there are now in excess of 100 athletes vying for the opportunity to wear the Fleur de Lis. Hughes will work closely with Senior Women's Head Coach, Remington Steele, to facilitate a smooth transition for players from U19 to Senior level.
Hughes says "I am excited to be given the opportunity to continue working within Wales Lacrosse. I’m looking forward to further developing and supporting the creation of an environment that supports and encourages all of those involved the the U19’s Programme."
The U19 Programme will form three training squads for this season, with competitive opportunities already secured at the Home Internationals and the U19 Men's World Championship Festival.
