Lacrosse

Men's Lacrosse is the newest addition to Columbus State University's Club Sports Program. Currently competing as an independent for the 2015 season, the Cougars will make an application to the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA) after the mandatory one year probation with the goal of joining the Southern Lacrosse Conference in 2016. The team has an ambitious first-year schedule, and will be competing against teams from all over the United States - including The Citadel, The University of Alabama, Auburn University, The University of Bridgeport (CT) and Georgia State University.

History

Lacrosse was one of many varieties of indigenous stickball games being played by American Indians at the time of European contact. Historically, Lacrosse has been an almost exclusively male team sport. However, its popularity with female athletes has been increasing in recent years. Lacrosse is distinguished from similar sporting activities, such as field hockey or shinny, by the use of a netted racquet for picking up,  throwing, catching and conveying the ball into or past a goal to score a point. The cardinal rule in all varieties of Lacrosse is that the ball, with few exceptions, must not be touched with the hands.

Home Facility

The Men's Lacrosse Team calls the Intramural Field at Columbus State University home.
The Intramural Field lies between the International House and Courtyard I student apartments along University Avenue,
and is a very spacious area perfect for everything the team would need.
The field was established in 2004, with its western edge featuring the Lindsey Mock Pavilion, which is a popular site for informal picnic events following competitions.
