Duquesne University Men's Lacrosse 2017
Who are we?
We are the Duquesne University Men’s Club Lacrosse team. The team consists of 35 players and two coaches. Established in 2015, our inaugural season exceeded expectations as we finished with an impressive 10-3 record, made it to the Conference Championship, and finished the season ranked 18th in the nation.
We compete in the Keystone Conference of the National College Lacrosse League (NCLL) and face teams from University’s such as: Carnegie Mellon, Robert Morris, Slippery Rock and Shippensburg.
Our season begins March 19 and our momentum from last season, combined with a successful crowdfunding campaign would make us a true force in the NCLL this year.
Why do we need your support?
Duquesne Men’s Lacrosse opens the season ranked 24th in the nation, and we are an early favorite in the Three Rivers Division. Moreover, the program has a strong following throughout the student body, and our move to Arthur J. Rooney Field should only increase our popularity. With all that being said, we could really use some help as we look to continue to grow our program. Our organization is fully student-funded, which means we need financial support to offset our expensive costs. Donations will help to pay for:
- Player Dues
- Field Fees
- Referee Fees
- Travel Expenses
A successful campaign will also free us from having to spend time hosting fundraisers throughout the year, allowing us more time to focus on studies and practice.
How can you help?
- Donate Now! Please consider making a donation today. Even a gift of $10 will be a major help and get us closer to our goal and ease our financial burden.
- Spread the Word! Helping to spread the word about this campaign to those who are passionate about Duquesne and Lacrosse will greatly add to the success of this project. Since we are so new, we have no alumni specifically connected to the team who we can reach out to for support. Please post a link to this campaign on Facebook and Twitter!
Please stay connected and plan to attend a game!
In addition to raising dollars, we hope that this campaign also increases our fan base. Please follow us on Twitter (@DuqMensClubLax) and plan to cheer us on at one of our games this season at Rooney Field!
