Q: “Is KSU Lacrosse a varsity team?”
A: No. We are a club team. That means that while we get money from the school, not all expenses are paid for by the school. As a team we have dues, fundraising, and sponserships that support the rest of the team’s activities.

Q: “So why should I want to play for KSU Lacrosse?”
A: If you played in high school and want to continue your career, than obviously come on out. If you’ve never played before you are still welcome to come out. Lacrosse is a great sport for all types of high school athletes, who want to stay active and enjoy team sports.

Q: “Are we Recruiting?”
A: Not in the same way that a varsity team would. We dont have money to give out to players and cannot affect an acceptance into the school. But once you are accepted to KSU, anyone is allowed to join the team, and we are always welcoming new players. Joining the team in the beginning of a semester is preferable to joining the middle or the end, but is not required. Send us an email from the Recruitment page if you want to know more.

Q: “What would I have to do to be eligible to play?”
A: You have to be a student at Kennesaw State University. This means that you are taking atleast 1 (one) class in any semester in which you want to particiapte in practices. To play in the league you must be taking 12 hours unless you are in your graduating semester in which case you can take less. Also, you must have no more than 3 spring semesters spent on any college lacrosse program’s roster.

Q: “What kind of a commitment is needed?”
A: We are a serious team, and therefore a commitment from you is required. The dates for the next semesters practices will be available before registration, that way you can schedule your classes around practice. This will allow us the most possible people at practice, without forcing anyone to miss a class.

Q: “What if I have scheduling conflicts?“
A: Try and work them out in advance. If nothing can be done about it, then send an email to the officers explaining why you cant make it. Playing time will depend on attendance at team practices and other functions so you should try and make it as much as possible.

Q: “How can I join the team?”
A: You can join the team by showing up to practice with the player registration packet filled out, and any gear that you may already own. It might be a good idea to get intouch with an officer before hand, but that is not required. We don’t have try-outs.

Q: “Who does the team play?”
A: We are going to schedule approx. 14 games for the spring against teams in the SELC.

Q: “Where do we pracitce/play?”
A: We are having practice at the intramural field. It is located inbetween the gym and the softball field. Home games will either be on the same field or on the varisty field at the front of campus.

Q: “Would I have to play in the fall and spring or could I play just one part of the season?”
A: You are allowed to play any semester you wish. The commitment that you make to the team only lasts for that semester. If you are thinking about playing the spring we encourage you to come out in the fall as well, so that we can get to know you better, and you can learn our system and earn more playing time than you would have by just coming out in the spring.

Q: ”What is the practice schedule like?”
A: We are practicing from 9-11:30 AM M-F. We will have 3 or 4 practices a week depending on Coach Byers work schedule.

Q: ”What equipment do I need to provide?”
A: All equipment needs to be provided by you. If you go though our sponsor, Bagataway Lacrosse, then they will give you what you need at cost. All players need to have a team helmet in order to play in the games, so talk to one of the officers about getting one. If you’re coming out for a first or second time to practice, many players have extra equipment which they can loan you, such as a stick and gloves. Once you decide to make the commitment to the team you should get your own equipment.
