    CU has one of the strongest, if not the strongest, Club Sports program in the nation.

    I felt it deserved its own thread.

    Especially since, based on the successful transition we've seen with WLAX, it appears that many of our Club teams are strong enough that CU could transition to varsity and enjoy immediate success.

    Whether that happens or not, though, these teams can be celebrated on their own.

    Main Website (all sport clubs): http://www.colorado.edu/recreation/club-sports

    Many of the individual sport club sites are currently under construction as they transition from being a bunch of independent sites to being on the colorado.edu server. Will update as they come available.

    Looks like the cycling team is putting in great work also!


    Might be helpful to put the twitter links for the various teams in the OP?

    If I may make a suggestion, show how these individual teams have finished over the last 5 years in national rankings to put it into perspective for those of us who have no idea about what is happening and add it into the OP.

    It's a good suggestion. I'm curious, too. Seem to be a number of national championships.

    Daughter played on one of the two club soccer teams. I'll tell ya, it was pretty intense and required a lot of time and effort. I'm not sure how they do it, but they had, like, a Level 1 team and Level 2 team. She was on the Level 2. The varsity actually recruited girls every so often from the "1" team. At any rate, they did road trips and the whole bit. Her team got 2nd in the "National Championship" for whatever level she was in. The toughest thing were the fees. She had to pay, like, $1,500 a season plus travel. It got to be too much for her and she dropped it.

    Looks like the Men's lacrosse team is at their (Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association, (MCLA)) National Championships, being held at UC- Irvine (yesterday and today) and, for those who advance, Chapman University (looks to be in Orange, CA) Thursday and Saturday.

    Per their twitter, the Buffs won their 1st round game yesterday 17-6 (over UC- Santa Barbara) and are facing Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo) in the 2nd round today at 5:00 MT. At least per the pole (http://mcla.us/polls/2016/week_10), looks like the Buffs might be considered a SLIGHT underdog today, as they're "only" ranked #5, while Cal Poly is #3.




    The Championship's website is http://mcla.us/tournaments/championships
    Looks like live stats for today's game may be available at http://mcla.us/game/18471
    Also, looks like the Buffs' twitter acct. was very good at giving updates during the game yesterday- https://twitter.com/CUMensLacrosse

    Also, for future reference (may want to include the info and link in the OP?), looks like next year's home lacrosse games (as I believe hockey games are also) will be available to be seen via video stream-
