On behalf of the WCLL board, I would like to thank you for your patience during this difficult time. We understand that things are not easy right now as we are all navigating the ever changing situations regarding COVID. With that in mind, we know many of the teams in our league are waiting on decisions for the spring season from us and from their school. Please keep an open mind as you read the next bit of information.
•The WCLA (nationals) has decided to cancel the national championship at the end of the regular season.
•The WCLL has also decided to cancel the league playoffs at the end of the regular season.
•Dues (national dues and the portion of league dues as stated before) are being rolled over to the 2021-2022 season. If this is an issue for your team, please contact a member of the WCLL board to further discuss.
•We are working to have an independent season this spring. What that means for the teams right now: teams will be allowed to play in a “season” however, the start time of the season will be moved back to later in the spring semester. The season will not count towards a players 4 year eligibility. The usual dues per season will not be collected as they are already being rolled over (see previous note above).
•The board will be meeting again after the holiday to discuss further details for the spring. Please understand we are doing everything we can to allow game play. We want to be on the field as much as you all do, but we know there are safety guidelines in place that we need to follow.
What we need from the teams:
•As soon as you are given the spring information of return to play from your school, please fill out the google doc on the WCLL home page. This will be very similar to the one filled out this fall.
•Begin to gather your roster numbers. Given the situation this year there will not be an eligibility form that needs to fill out to confirm full time student status.
•Once you do know your schools covid protocol for spring, if allowed work on possible field space and find out what safety measures need to be followed to host a game on your field.
•Keep watch for updates on the WCLL homepage for information of a zoom call that will be happening roughly mid January. This will be to discuss in further detail the ins and outs of the independent season and answer any questions everyone may have at that time.

Teams - please fill out this quick google doc. This will assist the board in having a better understanding of our league for the spring season. Keep in mind, several of the questions are regarding covid and covid precautions. We know many of you are waiting on your school to provide you more information of what they will or will not allow this spring. Please answer the questions once your school have given you the precautions or an answer as to when they will make the final determination.
Welcome to the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL), an intercollegiate club lacrosse organization, divided into two divisions, that represents 48 universities and colleges that stretch a geographic region from as far east as New York and west to Missouri and from the Canadian border to Kentucky. The WCLL, the largest club league in the continental United States, is beginning our 27th 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 2020. We believe in our mission and fully support US Lacrosse and all that they represent.
