The Women's Club Lacrosse team at Towson University is a self-governed organization that gives women an opportunity to participate in a non-varsity sport that promotes a fun and exciting learning environment for developing professional competition, cohesion within the team, and positive attitudes. It may interest those who have previously played lacrosse and want to continue playing but are not looking for the stronger commitments of a varsity team.
When do we play?
While we do play in the fall, our main season is in the spring. The fall season is more relaxed in comparison to our spring season. In the fall, we practice 2-3 days a week along with several games/tournaments. During the spring season we switch into high gear practicing 3-4 times a week regularly, and we play games almost every weekend.
Who do we play?
We are a Division I member of the Mid-Atlantic Women's Lacrosse League (MAWLL).
The MAWLL is a member of the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (WCLA) which is a member of US Lacrosse, our national governing organization. We are required to play at least 9 WCLA games in our regular season. See our MAWLL and WCLA links to the left for more information.
How much does it cost?
Dues, per semester, can vary between $100-150 depending on that season's expenses. Apparel orders are optional.
What do the officers do? And captains?
We have three officers who assume the administrative leadership positions of our club team. Our officers include the President, Vice President, and Treasurer. Their responsibilites include but are not limited to: organizing games, recording practice attendance, and controlling monetary issues of the club.
Captains are chosen by the Coach. Captains serve as on-field leadership. They hold a high skill level and possess extensive knowledge of the game. They are relied on to hold practices if necessary and to serve as constant motivation and leadership to the players.
What else does the team do?
As part of Towson University's Sport Club Organization (SCO), our Club is ranked in Tier 4. This includes, but is not limited to: completing 250 community service hours as a team, fundraising at least twenty percent of our SCO budget, and having a national governing body (US Lacrosse).
Full members are able to participate in ALL Club activities and are able to vote on Club issues. To be a full member of the Club according to Towson University SCO and US Lacrosse, you must:
- Have a 2.0 GPA or higher
- Be a full-time (12+ credits) undergraduate or graduate Towson University student (Exception: Students who have less than 12 credits may be full members if they are in their final semester before graduation.)
- Play no more than 4 regular seasons of lacrosse under the WCLA, NCAA, NJCAA, and/or NAIA.
Since lacrosse has become such a popular and influential sport within the past decade, our team has been expanding every years. With new faces, increased talent, and more expressed interest, we hope our club lacrosse program at Towson continutes to grow!
