About SBCC Lacrosse
SBCC Men's and Women's Lacrosse clubs are Sport Clubs competing under the Office of Student Life at Santa Barbara City College and the Recreation Department at UCSB. The men's lacrosse club competes as an independent. The women's lacrosse club competes regionally in the Western Women's Lacrosse League (WWLL) and nationally in the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA) of U.S. Lacrosse, the National Governing Body for the sport. This association governs regular season and national championship tournament play and enforces the use of student-athlete eligibility rules similar to those of the NJCAA. The SBCC women are a WWLL D2 team and a WCLA D2 team and compete for both of those championships, the league championship and the national championship.
Santa Barbara, CA - It's still early and there's room for more but eighteen incoming students have declared they are turning out for the SBCC Women's Lacrosse Club for the 2013-14 academic year. It is a record number of new female students interested in becoming part of the team. Fourteen of the newcomers have previous lacrosse experience and four of them are novices. The club embraces beginner players and aims at having six or more per year join the program so more spots remain open.
The Vaqueros women's lacrosse club is coming off a banner year in which they advanced to the Western Women's Lacrosse League (WWLL) Division II championship game this past April. SBCC were also selected for the national post-season scene and played in the U.S. Lacrosse WCLA National Championsihp Tournament in May.
SBCC coaches Eric Valois and Jacklyn Taylor return for a second year and the team will continue to enjoy the use of the fine turf facilities at UCSB for practices and games. The Vaqueros finished ranked 19th nationally under Valois and Taylor, who are also assistant coaches at UCSB. The Vaqueros were ranked as high as eleventh (March 20th poll) during the regular season where they had an 8-6 record playing six nationally ranked opponents. It seems fitting for the #1 ranked community college in the United States to have a nationally ranked women's lacrosse team since women's lacrosse is the highest rated sport academically at the university level.
Additional players are welcome to join, no experience necessary but, of course, welcome!

Fall lacrosse practice, non-traditional season, started Thursday, August 29th, but it's still possible to join the club.
