2018 Inter-school Lacrosse Championship
Date: 8-9 December, 2018
12 teams invited from across Taiwan and Hong Kong competed for Championships
The third Inter-school Lacrosse Championship saw teams from Taipei, Changhua and Taitung assemble at Taipei Medical University to compete.

With great capability comes great responsibility
To cultivate even maturer lacrosse IQ and EQ the Association unprecedentedly assigned players to take up the roles of being either assistant coaches or referees. Such coaching or officiating experiences not only provided a brand-new perspective to players but also unleashed their potentials of developing a profession in respective fields.
Bo-yi Wu, player of the Men's Team, regarded fellow teammates' attempts to take up new roles as "mutual personal growths". In Taiwan Lacrosse, being a player is never a limitation but an opportunity that exposes one to broader horizons.
Picking up the whistle for the first time, Yu-hung Hu, also player of the Men's Team, came to realise the difficulties of being a referee. "It is all incumbent upon the referees to maintain fairness and ensure safety, regardless of complaints."
TPCU Men's and Women's crowned co-champions
Taipei City University of Science and Technology (TPCU) dominated both Men's and Women's divisions and took the titles of best in 2018 Inter-school Championship. Kung-Tung Technical Senior High School came second.
Yuan-xun Hu from Champion team TPCU, described the tournament this time as "a challenge he never had". Being a freshman on the team, albeit a key player, he had to make great efforts to acclimatise himself into a new group of teammates and define his own position. He believed lacrosse brings people together and brings out the best of them, and he wished everyone experience the same.
The youngest generation of Taiwan Lacrosse displayed hard fights in the Junior Men's division too. Kinson Wan, Coach of the division's Champion, shared immense gratification from guiding the little men to set goals and build up teamwork, and seeing them show love to each other and share moments of joy altogether.
We sincerely thank everyone who participated. See you next year!
