The Men's Lacrosse Club was established in 2005 at the University of Arkansas. The club works to provide students with the opportunity to participate in and enjoy a meaningful and competitive program in the sport of lacrosse.
Our goal is to compete at the highest level of the sport while representing the University of Arkansas. The club provides a very competitive lacrosse experience without the overwhelming pressure and time-commitment of Division I varsity lacrosse. Our student-athletes are expected to dedicate themselves to the team, but they are given the time needed to focus on academics.
Practices and Games:
Playing lacrosse at Arkansas is a year-round commitment. We recommend that student-athletes schedule classes that end by 5:00 p.m. daily. Ending classes as early as possible on Friday accommodates team to travel that may begin on Friday. Most games are played on the weekend.
Our club is a member of the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA). Within this national organization, there are now two divisions, ten conferences, and almost 200 teams. The Lacrosse Club competes in Division I of the Lone Star Alliance (LSA). The club is in the Northern Division of the LSA together with North Texas, Oklahoma, Southern Methodist, Texas Christian, and Texas Tech, and travels and plays universities from other conferences as well. The LSA tournament is in late April. The winner of the tournament, along with the champions of the eight other conferences, get an automatic bid to the MCLA National Championship Tournament in mid-May. Seven other at-large bids go to the highest-ranked teams (that did not receive automatic bids) in the final regular season poll.
Our policy is that we do not make cuts, but we do not make guarantees either.
Anyone can be a part of the team, but it is a significant commitment. Club members must be committed to academics, workouts, and practices to be a part of our lacrosse program.
We don't make guarantees to players, meaning that we do not hold roster spots for or make promises to, recruits, new players, or returning players. We believe that the right people will matriculate through the lacrosse program based on their dedication to the sport and the team.
