|Introduction Message From Head Coach Chris Malone
First, congratulations on your consideration of Arizona State University and Sun Devil Lacrosse. Choosing the college or university you’d like to attend is one of the most important decisions in your life. Ultimately, the school that provides the best combination of academics and student life for you, should be your final choice. As most any student or alumnus will tell you, Arizona State consistently ranks among the best for a combination of academics and student life. I encourage you to involve your family and friends while making this decision, and if ASU is right for you then let me be the first to say welcome! If you choose Arizona State, as an alumnus of the program, I guarantee playing lacrosse while you are here will be the most memorable experience of your college life. Being part of the team fosters lifetime memories and friendships. You will spend most of your time outside of academic commitments with your teammates in a family atmosphere. One way for you to ensure the best possible college experience is to be part of something where you have guaranteed support from your peers regardless of topic or issue.
You’ll enjoy this on our team. In addition, as the fourth largest university in the United States, ASU’s diverse alumni body affords many opportunities for internships and post collegiate work well beyond the scope of most other schools. The Stickmen’s Club is a branch of the ASU Alumni Association exclusive to former lacrosse players. Among the main purposes of pursuing your college degree is learning life lessons that cannot be taught from any book. At Arizona State, our standards are high. The coaching staff will push you to be the best, setting exceptional goals and reaching them through character, leadership, and discipline, just to name a few. You have an opportunity to be part of something special, but it doesn’t come without commitment. Players are typically devoting 20 hours a week, minimum, to lacrosse.I encourage you to join our team as we contend for an MCLA Championship.
