After winning the sixth consecutive Italian title, the Lacrosse team is ready to face the new 2017-2018 sports season. The season opened with a prestigious tournament and international championships such as the Ken Galluccio Cup, in which our players managed to obtain the 8th place, to continue with the Italian Championship and finish with the Coppa Italia.

The majority of our players has never played before, but they are very willing and try to give the best they have into every training. This is exactly what we need: enthusiastic people ready to try a growing and easy to learn sport. Anyone is invited to try it.

Lacrosse is the fastest sport on two feet; it’s a full contact sport that requires agility, strength and coordination. The sport is growing fast both in Italy and Europe and has been recently taken into consideration for future Olympic games. 

A master student, Federico Galperti, who played for Durham University, UK, brought Lacrosse to Bocconi University in 2009. An American coach and player from Minnesota, Scott Offerman, later developed the program, leading the team to its first national championship. In 2013 Kyle Witt, a Drexel Graduate, replaced Offerman as head coach, assisted by Zach Zielonko.

Since 2010 the team competes in the Italian Championship organized by the Italian Federation and plays in many international tournaments.

Many players, who grew up playing lacrosse for Bocconi, have been selected for the Italian national team.

Our mission is to engage students, alumni, employees and members of the Bocconi community in the lacrosse world, both as players and fans.

Every year we teach, together with qualified coaches, the sport to new members, without loosing sight of Italian Championship, Coppa Italia and Ken Galluccio Cup.
