Women’s Soccer Club
Club soccer is a group of girls who share the love of the game and want to continue to play for fun. We are an open club and encourage everyone to come out and play with us. There are no formal tryouts so anyone is welcome to join. We practice twice a week, with games on the weekends during the fall semester. We also throw some fun team get togethers, such as team dinners and bowling nights, throughout the course of the season.

Men’s Lacrosse Club
The Drake University Lacrosse team was recognized as an official program by Drake University during the spring of 2010. However, movements to establish the team have been in effect since the fall of 2007. The team will had their first full season of competition starting in the fall and spring of 2010-2011. Currently, Drake Lacrosse has over 25 members with at least half of them being new to the sport within the last year. Practices are held weekly throughout both the spring and fall semesters and are held on the field to the right of the Tennis Center or in the Field House. We also carry some extra sticks and helmets for those who are interested but have no equipment. The time commitment to play on the team can be as much or as little as you want and since there are no membership dues it is very easy to get started.
