ASU Men's Lacrosse Needs Your Help to Reach the MCLA National Championship
About ASU Men's Lacrosse
Why play lacrosse for Arizona State University? ASU is a great place to get a college education. Consistently ranked among the best schools for a combination of academics and student life, ASU’s diverse alumni body affords many opportunities for internships and post collegiate work. Tempe boasts the metropolitan resources of Phoenix, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. And we have 330 sunny days a year. Add in the fact that ASU offers attractive tuition even for out of state students compared to most major universities and you'll see why the opportunity to play lacrosse here is nearly truly golden.
Our philosophy here at Arizona State is that we want to do whatever it takes to compete at the highest level possible and represent the University in the best possible way. As such, we look and act like a NCAA program at practice and during games. We require our student-athletes to work hard to achieve team and individual goals. In addition, every one of our players must follow MCLA rules and regulations regarding academic eligibility.
As a club team, we do not receive much financial support from the University. We must do extensive fundraising to enable us to run the kind of program we do. Fundraising is a big part of what the program does on an everyday basis. Players have to be prepared to fundraise when they come here. Most D1 athletes don’t have to worry about that.
This is not a team for casual student-athletes. In the Fall a study hall program is required for all freshmen and upperclassmen who require the additional support. By Spring semester, most players no longer need the external reinforcement, but the program is available for those who do. Just like our varsity counterparts, at ASU our student-athletes take great pride in representing our university in competition across the country. Playing lacrosse here is a big commitment and a tremendously valuable experience that will provide life-long rewards.
