How competitive is the team?
First and foremost, WE ARE NOT A VARSITY TEAM! This means you are not at practice everyday and we try to work around your schedule. We are here to have fun, get some exercise and play LACROSSE!!
We play other school's club teams and are competitive with them.
Will I need my own equipment?
No, we do have team equipment you may borrow. You will need a stick, goggles and a mouthguard. Goggles are mandatory! If you need equipment, Sports Her Way is a great place to get equipment.
What must I do to join the team?
Just e-mail us at UMBCwlax@gmail.com! We will then put you on the e-mail list, so you get all the latest news about club lacrosse. It is never too late or too early to join!
When are practices and games?
Practices vary by semester. They are usually on weekday eveings. The number and actual time vary on the semester. In the spring, we practice more because we are 'in season'.
Games are usually on the weekends during the afternoon. We try to work around everyone's schedule but it is not always possible. We ask that you give us an accurate school/work schedule to maximize the number of games and practices you will be able to come to.
Please see the Schedule page for an up to date schedule!
Who do we play?
We play in a league, the MAWLL. It is part of the WDIA, a US Lacrosse sanctioned league. We play various other schools around the area such as Loyola, Towson, George Washington and Maryland. Also we play some post-college club teams. We also play in a few tournaments each year.
Do I have to know how to play lacrosse?
No, we can teach you how to play. You can even borrow equipment until you are sure you want to play!
Are there try-outs?
No, there are no try-outs. Any skill level is welcome to play.
