The Plano West Lacrosse Club is a relative newcomer to the traditional Texas lacrosse powerhouses. Plano West Lacrosse was started in 2001 and competes in the THSLL - Texas High School Lacrosse League.
In 2005 under the guidance of Dave Flick a former USMBC Hall of Famer and World Team player Plano West won the DII state championship.
The Plano West Boys Lacrosse program competes in Division I status, the highest level of competition in the State of Texas. The Plano West Varsity team has a proud tradition of producing collegiate players. Since the programs inception in 2001 many boys playing on those teams were recruited to play college lacrosse at the NCAA DI and DIII levels. Many more have gone on to play with Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association teams. All high school boys have the opportunity to make the DI Varsity team. However, it is our coaching staff’s belief that underclassmen are often better served and developed playing at the JV levels because it is on those teams that they will get adequate playing time to maximize their potential. We do not permit seniors to play at the JV level.
The Plano West Junior Varsity team is a competitive yet developmental team. By league rules a JV team is open to underclassmen and juniors. The JV teams have generally been made up of underclassmen and athletes new to lacrosse. The JV team balances competitiveness with frequent line rotations.
Our eligibility policy states that a boy must live in the Plano West Feeder Disctrict to try out for and join one of our teams.
Many former Plano West lacrosse players have played in NCAA DI and DIII and MCLA college programs including Brown, Belarmine, Air Force, Providence, Penn State, Hofstra, St. Anslems, Goucher, Texas and TCU.
