The Gustavus Men's Lacrosse Team is a competitive club program that has a relatively short history on campus. The team is competing in its eighth official season in the Great Lakes Lacrosse League where it continues to improve each season. The Great Lakes Lacrosse League provides a competitive league for teams in the upper Midwest who want to play in a well organized league outside of NCAA restrictions and without the expense of being a club team which travels and competes nationwide. We play teams from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, North Dakota ,and South Dakota. Most games are with teams in close proximity . This minimizes travel costs and unnecessarily long road trips. We play an average of twelve games every spring. The club is comprised of students with varying lacrosse experience and is always willing to accept dedicated new members. The purpose of the club is to provide an on campus opportunity for students to improve their skills in lacrosse, develop teamwork, and promote the sport in a positive manner.
