Caven Lacrosse Field at the University of Texas

Texas Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse will practice and play their home games at the new Caven Lacrosse and Sports Center at Clark Field following a mutimillion-dollar project. It is an NCAA-caliber field that may serve as a prelude to the University of Texas elevating lacrosse to Varsity Division I status in the near future. The $4 million renovation was made possible through $3 million in private donations and $1 million from the university’s recreational sports department.

Growth Of Lacrosse: Utah Legislature Passes Bill “Mandating” Lacrosse Club Teams Be Allowed Use Of High School Fields “Without Fees”


“…some high school club lacrosse teams are being charged $1,000 dollars a game to use the school’s facilities and felt that was unfair treatment when other clubs in the school can use the facilities for no charge…”

The Utah House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that will allow High School Club teams to use high school fields for their practices and games. While some schools allow club sports or non UHSAA sanctioned sports, such as lacrosse, to use school facilities for free, others are charging clubs a fee. Rep. Stephen Sandstrom, R-Orem, would like to get rid of those fees.

“What we are finding is that many schools are restricting the use of the playing fields,” said Sandstrom. “These kids deserve access to their fields.”

Sandstrom noted that some high school club lacrosse teams are being charged $1,000 dollars a game to use the school’s facilities and felt that was unfair treatment when other clubs in the school can use the facilities for no charge.

The clubs would not have priority over UHSAA sanctioned practices or games, meaning a club lacrosse match could not take priority over a UHSAA girls soccer game.
