Stacks for Pitt Women's Club Lax

The Current Team:

Thanks to the support of our friends and family, the 2018-2019 Lady Panthers went undefeated and won last year’s WCLA National Championship! This year’s fall ball season was hard-fought. We went to Duquesne, Seton Hill, Mercyhurst and left everything we had on the field (and a special thank you to all of the parents who came out to support us!).

We’re super fired up, and ready to compete against top NCAA Division I, II, and III teams again in the 2020 season. 

Our Project:

As members of a large regionally-based conference and an even larger national organization, we travel to different tournaments throughout the spring season to compete with the best. Since we are a club team at the University, we receive limited funds from our Student Government Board.

We work to off-set the remaining costs through player dues and fundraising efforts, like team nights at our local restaurants (i.e. Chipotle, Roots, and Piada), as well as canning at Steelers, Pirates, and Penguin games. While we work hard in ~rain or shine, freezing or blazing temps~, it simply is not enough to cover all of the expenses we accumulate through the year. This is where we need your help and support!

Without support from our family, friends, alumni, and fans, we will not be able to attend these necessary tournaments and attain new victories. We hope to attend four major tournaments in the spring, provided we qualify for Regionals and Nationals.

How You Can Help:

There are many ways you can help your favorite Lady Panthers be successful this season! These include, but are not limited to, $$$ DONATIONS $$$, spreading the word, sharing our link, and cheering us on as we start a season that will hopefully be just as successful as last year!

Thank you so much from all of Pitt Women's Club Lacrosse, and as always, HAIL TO PITT! 

Tournament Information:

This year we hope to attend three major tournaments in the spring, provided we qualify for the Regionals and Nationals tournaments, which we have for 13 of the past 16 years:

1. UCLA Shootout- California (February 2020)

This tournament is the opening tournament of WCLA play and one of our most important. The distance requires a flight, so this tournament is our most expensive, costing about $20,000.

This cost includes:

  • Round trip airfare from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles for 24 people
  • Two nights in a hotel for 24 people
  • Tournament fees
  • Ground transportation to and from games, our hotel, and the Los Angeles airport

2. WCLL Regionals- Michigan (April 2020)

This is a tournament that we have to qualify for, but historically have attended every year for the past 11 years. This also helps us qualify for the national tournament later in the season!

This cost includes:

  • Transportation to and from Michigan for 24 people
  • Two nights in a hotel for 24 people
  • Tournament fees

3. WCLA Nationals- Round Rock, Texas (May 2020)

Again, our team must qualify for this tournament. While we are absolutely pumped to work towards attending Nationals in Texas, with high excitement comes a HEFTY price-tag. Since the tournament is being hosted in Texas, it is expected to cost us over $20,000, making it the most expensive Nationals in years. Winning Nationals is our #1 priority, and we can't achieve this goal without your generous support.

This cost includes:

  • Round trip airfare to and from Texas for the 24 people
  • Four nights in the WCLA mandated hotel for 24 people
  • National Tournament fees

Thank you so much for your continued support in helping us do what we love!!!
