The Brigham Young University Men's lacrosse team competes in the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA)(formerly the USLIA)and in the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference (RMLC). The MCLA is a club lacrosse league and its teams receive no funding from their representative colleges or the NCAA. This means that no scholarships are awarded to its athletes; most athletes have to pay team dues to play on the team. Despite the lack of recruiting ability, the BYU Lacrosse team has fared well in the MCLA and have had consecutive winning seasons since 1996.

The BYU Cougars lacrosse team defeated the Oregon Ducks to become the MCLA National Champions in 2007 and look to defend their title in 2008.

History

The BYU Lacrosse team was founded in 1975; however, significant records of the team only date back to 1995 when Jason Lamb began his tenure as head coach.

The BYU Lacrosse team had four wins and five losses (4-5) in their first season under Coach Lamb, accounting for their only losing season on record. The Cougars went 13-3 in his second season and have not had a losing season since. The team’s worst record since 1995 came in 2006 when they went 12-8, although during the 2006 national tournament they advanced to the Final Four.

During the 2007 season, the national championship game was to be rescheduled to a Sunday due to a conflict with a game for the United States women's national soccer team. The BYU Cougars—predominately an LDS team—refused to play on Sunday; the MCLA agreed to reschedule the tournament for the following week.

The Cougars won the national championship in 1997, 2000, and 2007. The Cougars have won the RMLC championship seven times in the past 15 years, capturing the title in 1997-1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, and 2008.

The BYU Womens Lacrosse team is part of the WDIA. It is not recognized or funded by BYU. In 2007 the team was ranked 5th in the nation and finished 4th in the National Championship. website www.brighamyoungwomenslacrosse.com

Recruiting

BYU lacrosse does not offer scholarships to players as incentive to attend Brigham Young University. Most of the team's recruiting is done at BYU lacrosse summer camps which are run by head coach Jason Lamb.

The team is notable for their high turnover rate of athletes from year to year and the large percentage of freshmen on the team. This is due to many of the players serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints which creates many vacant positions for incoming freshmen classes.
