As the Dutch say ‘Many hands make light work!’ Many members also contribute by organizing events, activities, etc. within the club. There are several committees that are under supervision of one of the board members. It is always possible to start a new committee in consultation with the board. So, do you have a good idea and do you want to organize something? Sign up for one of the committees or set up a committee yourself!
The Eurekaweek committee promotes the sport, the association and the introduction package during the Eurekaweek. In addition to that, they take care of the lacrosse introductory month in September to attract as many enthusiastic new members as possible. The committee works closely together the promotion-, activity- and technical committee.
Members: Elizabeth (D2), Hanneke (trainer D1 / D2), Jet (D2), Koen (H1), Lucy (D2), Manon (D1), Merel (D2) and Robin (H1).
The material committee is responsible for the material of Rotterdam lacrosse. The aim is to keep all material in good condition, so everyone can always play without worry. In addition, the committee also invests in new lacrosse materials under the guidance of the treasurer. Each team provides a member for the materials committee, this way each team takes care of club properties.

The promotion committee is responsible for promoting the sport and the association. This can be done through different channels. They promote various activities (among others the introduction, friends & family tournament, open practices) organized by the other committees. They also provide promotional material (including flyers, posters and stickers) during the various events. In addition, they also provide the content for social media (Instagram, Facebook and website) which makes the club and sport constantly visible. Lastly, they come up with fun activities to get even more attention for our great but relatively unknown sport.
Members: Elizabeth (D2), Jet T (D1) and Isabelle (D2)
