TOLEDO - The 23rd annual Women's Collegiate Lacrosse League's annual fall meeting will convene in Toledo, Ohio Sunday, November 5, 2017. The meeting will begin promptly at 10 am at the Radisson at the University of Toledo.
The cost of the WCLL and WCLA is $300 for WCLL dues and $400 WCLA dues. Each team will have to pay the WCLL at the annual meeting $700, as the league will pay your national dues in one payment. Please make out the check to WCLL and you can pay by credit card at the meeting for your league and national dues. In addition to paying league and national dues, all WCLL teams will be required before the meeting to register with USL and the WCLA at this website: http://www.wcla.us/memberships. Please enroll as quickly as possible.
The annual meeting will be staged at the Radisson at the University of Toledo, which is located at Radisson at the University of Toledo 3100 Glendale Avenue Toledo, OH 43614. The phone number is (419) 381-6800 and the fax number is (419) 389-9716. League organizers have secured a WCLL block of 40 rooms for the event at $99 a night, which we expect WCLL teams to use because without full occupancy the league will get charged for the meeting room.
"Please make sure you reserve a room at the Radisson because we have to fill up the hotel to save money. The other aspect of staying in one place is not driving around campus on Sunday trying to find the meeting room. The rooms are $99 a night, which is a reasonable price for a great hotel, so please get this done before the end of the month and every team must fill out the WCLA membership request as well before the meeting," said Greg Normand, WCLL president.
The annual meeting will cover a wide variety of subjects that relate to the 2018 spring intercollegiate women's club lacrosse season and all teams are required to attend. If a school does not attend the annual meeting, league organizers will withdraw their entry in the league. The meeting will include rules coverage, officials assignments and scheduling, said league officials. Hotel arrangements are being made at the moment, so stay tuned for lodging information.
For new teams looking to join the WCLL, please contact Greg Normand, WCLL president for more information. New teams will have to make a presentation Saturday night at the league's annual board of directors meeting. No entry will be granted into the WCLL without consulting and presenting to the WCLL board.
If you have any questions about the WCLL or the meeting, please correspond at email@example.com. The mailbox is opened daily.

BOARD WANTS ONE CENTRAL COMMUNICATION HUB - WCLLLACROSSE@gmail.com
The WCLL league organizers are concerned about communications with member teams. In the past two years, all of the WCLL board members have received messages from coaches, team presidents and concerned citizens with the sole issue of looking for answers. The problem with contacting so many outlets at the league level is the messages are getting lost and that's a problem.
"This is really simple, we want all of the communications concerning league matters to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep track of the issues and find answers in a quick and timely matter," said Greg Normand, WCLL president. "Any communications between teams, is still between teams, but if you have an issue, please use the league email address as the board members will be sending you back any specific requests and we hope this works for everybody."
For any correspondence for the WCLL governing board, please use the email address email@example.com. If contacting an individual or team in the league, please use the separate personal email addresses that are highlighted on the website.

Welcome to the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL), an intercollegiate club lacrosse organization, divided into two divisions, that represents 53 universities and colleges that stretch a geographic region from as far east as New York and west to Missouri and from the Canadian border to Kentucky. The WCLL, the largest club league in the continental United States, is beginning our 23nd year of competition and we look forward to serving the many student-athletes in our conference. In the WCLL's long tenure, we have experienced the growth of womens' club lacrosse, whether watching a university club program transform into an NCAA scholarship opportunity or just witnessing a smaller club team enjoy the fruits of friendship, while competing in a shared experience. The WCLL's historical landscape is scattered with a number of successes and we're hopeful the trend will continue in 2017. We believe in our mission and fully support US Lacrosse and all that they represent. Our basic mission is simple:
WCLL MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (WCLL) is to develop the athletic opportunities of its participants, nourish the educational challenges of scholastic life and enhance the collegiate experience.

SPARKS, MARYLAND - If you're confused about which rules to follow for the upcoming season, don't fret. The WCLA and WCLL board have been advised by the national rules committee that they are still deciding what rules will be used for the upcoming spring. For the moment, WCLA teams will be under the NCAA Women's Lacrosse Rule Book. The rules should be finalized in October and they will be published.
DETROIT - The assigner for WCLL women's lacrosse games in 2017-2018 is M.J. Evagash (email@example.com), who is based on Pittsburgh. She will handle all assignments, so coaches should contact her for any issues related to officiating.
"We are fortunate to have M.J. as our assigner this year," said Greg Normand, the WCLL president. "She brings a mountain of experience and is the head assigner for three NCAA leagues including Michigan based MIAA and the GLIAC."
Normand said if you have any questions about officiating or assigning, especially play dates that you should contact her as soon as possible. Evagash will be assisted by Indiana assigner Leslie Porteous (firstname.lastname@example.org), but league organizers are asking teams to funnel their playdates and questions through her.
