The Stories That Matter Most To The Utah Lacrosse Community

Weber State Voted into RMLC

Weber LogoThe Wildcats are back! After having a lacrosse club program on and off for several decades, Weber State had been without a team for years. But thanks to a few determined individuals, the program has been accepted back into the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference. The decision came after a long year of work for the Wildcats, who went through coaching and leadership changes as they put together both unofficial fall and spring seasons, including a trip to Montana to play Great Falls and Montana State.
“The meeting that we had with the RMLC last week was very positive,” remarked team president Craig Potter, “we’ve received a lot of support from some of it’s members and can tell that they are all excited for us to become and official RMLC team.”
The team has experienced great support from the university itself: “Working with the school has gone well so far,” said Potter, “As a part of the school’s rec clubs division we have access to on-campus facilities and athletic trainers at no cost for practices and games. We also have been receiving funding from the school and have the opportunity to receive more from them as we progress as a program.”
Weber State’s goal is to create a place where players can afford to play after high school, have fun, and fill an important role in building a program and in turn, build themselves. “If you want to be just another cog in the wheel of the next championship team, then maybe our program isn’t for you. We want those talented players that are more than just a name and number on a roster or even the next super star. USU v WeberWe want the guys who want to help create and grow something that’s bigger than themselves and do a lot of good for a lot of people.”
If you’re a player looking to make an immediate impact, or if you’ve simply got plans to attend Weber State, the revived program provides an excellent opportunity to extend your playing career. The Wildcats will play the 2017 season as probationary members of the RMLC’s Division-II, playing a minimum of four games against conference opponents as they get their feet under them and transition into full conference membership.
