The Texas Christian University’s Men’s Lacrosse Team was founded in 1983 by a group of students who all shared the same passion for TCU academics, athletics and the game of lacrosse. After a brief hiatus, this team was revived by a group of students who shared the same initial passions and wanted to commit to the process of producing very competitive TCU lacrosse teams that ultimately competes for multiple championships.
TCU currently competes in the MCLA, or the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association. The MCLA is a national organization of non-NCAA, men's college lacrosse programs. The MCLA oversees game play and conducts national championships for over 200 teams in ten conferences throughout the United States and Canada. The MCLA provides a governing structure much like the NCAA, with eligibility rules, All-Americans and a national tournament to decide national champions in both Divisions I and II. TCU is a Division I member of the Lone Star Alliance Conference, along with SMU, Texas, OU, Texas Tech, and A&M among others.
The TCU team will be comprised of 40 players from all across the nation, has a close association with the university, and operates a $40,000+ annual budget. As a university athletic club program, donations and sponsors from corporations and individual who are alumni and friends of the Horned Frogs Nation are incredibly important to our continued success. Here at TCU, we are a school built on a foundation of championships. This year we welcome another talented freshman class to join our already strong subgroup of returning players to take the program to the next level of performance with championships on the horizon.
