Men's Lacrosse

The University of Dubuque men’s lacrosse team is a new program recently launched as a varsity sport, and began intercollegiate competition in the spring of 2014. Lacrosse is a relatively new sport in the Midwest, we encourage you to join and help establish the Spartans as a winning lacrosse team. Expand your experiences and come see lacrosse, which combines the discipline of many sports into this rigorous, challenging sport of Native American origin.

The Spartans joined the CCIW for men's lacrosse in 2015.

Rain or shine, take advantage of the state-of-the-art, indoor Veterans Memorial Training Center, all year-round in a multi-purpose facility that features nearly 40,000 square feet of Mondo synthetic turf that simulates the feel and play of real grass. Veterans Memorial is located right next to Oyen Lacrosse/Soccer Field and hosts in-season and off-season workouts. Both facilities are apart of the Chlapaty Sports Complex.

Take a tour of the University of Dubuque Athletic facilities with senior captain Tyson Svoboda.
