The Current Team:
Thanks to the support of our friends and family, the 2019-2020 Lady Panthers went undefeated, dominated our California tournament, and are still reigning WCLA National Champions since 2019! This year’s fall ball season wasn’t what we expected, but we have started up practices and are continuing to work hard and make the most of this year!
We’re super fired up, hoping (and ready) to compete against top NCAA Division I, II, and III teams again in the 2021 season.
As members of a large regionally-based conference and an even larger national organization, we usually travel to different tournaments throughout the spring season to compete with the best. Given the circumstances of Covid-19 this year, we are still hoping to be able to play in those conferences this spring. Since we are a club team at the University, we receive limited funds from our Student Government Board.
We work to offset 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. However, because of the pandemic, we haven’t been able to do these fundraisers. This is where we really 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 use your donations for possible tournaments and games in the spring. If we aren’t allowed to play games in the spring, your donations will be very helpful in lowering player dues and saving that money for future successful seasons.
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!
This year we hope to attend four 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 2021)
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
Ground transportation to and from games, our hotel, and the Los Angeles airport
2. WCLL Regionals- Michigan (April 2021)
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:
3. WCLA Nationals- Virginia Beach, Virginia (May 2021)
Again, our team must qualify for this tournament. While we are absolutely pumped to work towards attending Nationals in Virginia, with high excitement comes a HEFTY price-tag. Since the tournament is being hosted in Virginia, it is expected to cost us over $15,000, 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:
*With Covid, these tournament plans are still up in the air for our 2021 spring season. If we aren’t able to attend these games this year, your donations will still be very important for future seasons and tournaments and help relieve stress of player dues and uniform costs!
Thank you so much for your continued support in helping us do what we love!!!
