j44gp8dywfkykgp9Located in the foothills of San Marcos, California (northern San Diego County), just a short distance from some of Southern California’s best beaches and an hour from the U.S.-Mexico border. Only miles from the hustle and bustle of major cities such as San Diego and Los Angeles, but nestled in a quiet, suburban neighborhood (population 55,000). While our campus is expansive (we’re talking 304 acres), it’s tucked into the foothills overlooking the city, creating a tight-knit community right here on campus.

As a lacrosse program we are young, but our players and staff are motivated to establish our team as a powerhouse in the SLC  and a force on the national level. With the hotbed of youth & high school lacrosse in San Diego, our location provides us with a unique opportunity to bring in talented student-athletes from some of the best high school programs in the nation. As a member of Cougars Lacrosse, you will have the opportunity to be a part of something special. With hard work and dedication, the sky is the limit for this program and for you as a student, an athlete, and a member of the community.
