Women’s Soccer Club
Women's Club soccer is a group of girls who want to play soccer past the high school and intramural level.  We travel and compete against other collegiate teams (including Iowa State, Iowa, UNI, Bradley, Augustana, Grandview, and Creighton).  Practices are held three times a week.  Joining the team is a great way to meet girls with similar interests and to share the love of the game!

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.
