Dear Potential SFU Field Lacrosse player,
First, congratulations on discovering Simon Fraser University (SFU) and involving us in your selection process. SFU is one of North America's premier schools, successfully combining athletics and academics with its collegiate atmosphere.
SFU consistently ranks among the top universities in Canada.

The school, with an approximate enrollment of 25,000, offers over 100 programs in Applied Science, Arts, Business, Education and Science.
SFU Lacrosse has also succeeded to be one of the top collegiate field lacrosse clubs in North America. Competing on a national level with some of the biggest and most reputable schools in North America since 1997, SFU Lacrosse has won a record six Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League (PNCLL) conference championships, and traveled to St. Louis to compete in the US Lacrosse Intercollegiate Associates (IA) National Championships a total of seven times.
If you decide to play here, you will be joining our drive to be the best both on and off the field.
