US Lacrosse is pleased to announce a partnership with Lax Sports Network (LSN) to provide free video streaming of semifinal and championship games for the 2019 WCLA Division I and Division II championships.

The live video streaming will include four semifinal games on Friday, May 10, and the two championship games on Saturday, May 11. 

This year’s semifinal games in Virginia Beach will be played back-to-back on May 10, with the D-I semifinals scheduled for 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., followed by the D-II semifinals at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. 

On Saturday, May 11, the D-II championship is scheduled for 12-noon (EDT), with the D-I final to follow at 2:30 p.m.  

This marks the fourth straight year that fans of the US Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA) will be able to follow the action via video streaming. 

“We are excited to provide free streaming for the WCLA semifinals and finals once again this year. Providing access and exposure to this event not only highlights these young women and the high level of competition at the collegiate club level, but helps to promote the growth of our game and the opportunities to play in college,” said Caitlin Kelley, women’s game senior manager at US Lacrosse. 

Nearly 230 non-varsity collegiate teams comprise the WCLA and compete under the US Lacrosse umbrella. Started in 2001, the annual WCLA National Championship features the WCLA’s premier teams, with a Division I field of 16 teams and a Division II tournament of 12 qualifying teams.

“Along with US Lacrosse, Lax Sports Network is excited to showcase the talented players of the WCLA.  The semifinal and championship games are a terrific addition to LSN's ‘Championship May’ featuring championships and all-star games across all levels of competitive lacrosse,” said Rob Wallace, chief operating officer at Lax Sports Network. 

This year’s Division I tournament begins on Wednesday, May 8, with the Division II tournament starting Thursday, May 9. The event concludes with the two championship games on Saturday. Fans are welcome to attend all games. Admission is free at the Princess Anne Athletic Complex and Sportsplex in Virginia Beach throughout the event. 

Full coverage of the championships will be provided each day on uslacrosse.org/wcla2019 and USLaxmagazine.com, the official websites of US Lacrosse, including blogs, game stories, scores, updated game schedules, brackets and photo galleries.
