Consistent with the University’s upward trajectory, all athletic programs have been elevated to Division I as a member of the America East Conference, effective July 1, 2013.  As part of the transition to Division I, the University is starting men’s and women’s lacrosse and will begin competition effective the academic year 2014-15. New coaches are being sought immediately for both programs.

Excitement to bring back men’s lacrosse and start the women’s program from the ground up continues to build.  Construction on a new soccer/lacrosse field with artificial turf is in progress and will be completed soon. The University sponsored men’s lacrosse as a varsity sport from 1970 to 1989. The team enjoyed success and produced high-caliber student-athletes on the field and in the classroom. From 1981-84, the team compiled a 38-9 record which included the Colonial League Championship in 1983. A number of lacrosse alumni have engaged the University in discussions about forming a support group to advance the program.  In addition, a large number of prospective student-athletes have contacted the University about enrolling and competing for the men’s & women’s teams in 2014-15.

The head coaches for men’s & women’s lacrosse are responsible to organize, conduct and supervise all aspects of a Division I lacrosse team within the parameters designated by the university, the America East Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

In recent years, UMass Lowell has surged forward by every important measure of higher education: academics, research, fundraising, globalization, recruitment, retention, diversity, campus life, engagement with the community and the range of new and renovated facilities.  There is no better time to join UMass Lowell as it continues to Soar Higher!
