No sport has grown faster at the NCAA level over the past decade than lacrosse and club lacrosse is growing just as fast. A record 170 teams played NCAA Division I lacrosse (67 men's, 103 women's) in 2015. New varsity programs are popping up in states like Arkansas, Colorado, Mississippi and others. The result of the expansion means that nearly 30,000 players are playing collegiate lacrosse each year.
