Welcome to the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL), an intercollegiate club lacrosse organization, divided into two divisions, that represents 47 universities and colleges that stretch a geographic region from as far east as New York and west to Missouri. The WCLL, the largest club league in the continental United States, is beginning our 20th year of competition and we look forward to serving the many student-athletes in our conference. In the WCLL's long tenure, we have experienced the growth of womens' club lacrosse, whether watching a university club program transform into an NCAA scholarship opportunity or just witnessing a smaller club team enjoy the fruits of friendship, while competing in a shared experience. The WCLL's historical landscape is scattered with a number of successes and we're hopeful the trend will continue in 2015. We believe in our mission and fully support US Lacrosse and all that they represent. Our basic mission is simple:
