Club Sports at SXU
Saint Xavier University is proud to introduce club sports for students who are interested in competing at a collegiate level! Recreational club sports differ from standard athletic sports in that you'll be developing and exercising skills through tournaments and games without an NAIA affiliation.
Whether you want to continue your lacrosse career or want to learn the game for the first time, join Saint Xavier University's Men's Lacrosse Club where you'll learn the fundamentals of the game, prepare for competition and practice on the recently renovated Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field. All students are welcomed to participate as long as there is passion for the sport.
You can compete against teams in the Great Lakes Lacrosse League, as well as against local teams, including universities like DePaul University, Loyola University, Northern Illinois University and Bradley University.
