Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to support Pitt Women's Club Lacrosse, you may always do so here.
The Current Team:
Thanks to the support of friends and family, 2016-2017 Lady Panthers placed 2nd in last year’s WCLA Nationals! This year’s fall ball season was hard-fought. We went to Seton Hill, IUP, and Duquesne and left everything we had on the field (A special thank you to all of the parents who came to support us).
Fired up, we are ready to play again in the 2018 season against NCAA Division I, II, and III teams.
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 Chipotle and canning at Steelers, Pirates, and Penguin games ~rain or shine, freezing or tropical temps~, but it simply is not enough. 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 is sure to be filled with many triumphs.
Thank you so much from all of Pitt Women's Lacrosse, and as always, Hail to Pitt!
We hope to attend four major tournaments in the spring, provided we qualify for Regionals and Nationals, which we have for 11 of the past 14 years:
1. UCLA Shootout- February 2018
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 $15,000. This cost includes:
Round trip airfare from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles for 24 people
Three nights in a hotel for 24 people
Ground transportation from the Los Angeles airport, to games, and back to our hotel.
2. We will be playing in a tournament in April against 3 WCLL rivals that will be important for qualification for Regionals.
3. WCLL Regionals- April - Michigan
This is a tournament that we have to qualify for, but historically have attended every year for the past 10 years.
4. WCLA Nationals in.....TEXAS !!!!!
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. This tournament is expected to cost us over $15,000, making it the most expensive Nationals in years. Winning Nationals is our #1 goal, and we can't get there without your generous support.
