Women’s Lacrosse Club

Lacrosse is a team sport that involves 12 players playing at once on the field. Much like soccer, field hockey, and basketball, it takes endurance and coordination to play. No lacrosse experience is required. The only requirement is that you must have played a sport in high school. Our lacrosse program is a completely student organization. From fundraising to volunteering we are fully involved. The program has developed over the past few years and every year we improve in increasing the number of committed new players. We have kept our traveling roster at 13, but we hope to increase it to at least 20 this semester.
