Who We Are
Texas Women's Club Lacrosse formed in 1993 for female UT students with a passion for lacrosse. Since then, the team has come a long way by attracting some of the best athletes in the state, winning state championships seven times, and attending the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (WCLA) National Championships in 2002, 2004, every year from 2009 to 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2022.
We play in the Texas Women's Lacrosse League (TWLL) under the US Lacrosse-sponsored WCLA. The top teams compete in the TWLL Championships and, depending on the number of TWLL teams that join the WCLA that year, the first-place winner from TWLL could receive a bid to compete in the WCLA National Championships against the top 16 teams in the nation. Texas has won the state championship six times.
What We’re Fundraising For
UT Lacrosse is a club-level sport, which means we receive some funding and sponsorship from Recreational Sports. The rest of our income is earned through dues, fundraisers, and donations. Since we only receive a certain amount of funding from Recreational Sports, the rest of our expenses are paid out of pocket. Our players provide all administrative support through our officer positions and make all decisions regarding the direction of the team. We are raising funds to keep dues affordable, for equipment and travel.
Donors' gifts to our organization go towards travel expenses and tournament fees. We are a nationally competitive team, so these funds help tremendously in allowing us to compete against the nation’s top teams in preparation for the national tournament in May every year. Our team consists of a wide variety of skill levels and years of experience, but we all have one goal in common - to spread the sport of lacrosse and put Texas, which is not yet a hotspot for the sport, on the map nationally.
