The men’s club volleyball team does not have a very long history, this being their third season. Having a young team has its own pros and cons, and the players realize how difficult it can be when they face more experienced teams. The team has about 15 guys, most of them from outside Alabama.
The Alabama club wrestling team is preparing for their first year under head coach Stephen Meyer.

The Alabama women’s lacrosse team is starting its seventh year poised to make huge strides both this season and in the future. Because lacrosse is not a NCAA-sanctioned sport at Alabama, the Crimson Tide plays in a league called the Southern Women’s Lacrosse League along with other schools from the southeast. The Tide has established itself as a contender in the SWLL and hopes to improve from last year when the team starts its regular season in the spring.
