The Southwestern Lacrosse Conference (SLC) is a lacrosse-only athletic conference affiliated with the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA). The conference incorporates teams in California, Arizona, and Nevada and is divided into two divisions, Division I and Division II.
The SLC is formed from original members of the Western Collegiate Lacrosse League which was the largest MCLA conference in the nation at the time. Because of rapid growth and teams spread out over a very large area, the members decided it was best to start a new conference and the SLC was born August 2008 with the blessing of the WCLL and MCLA.
Currently, the SLC has twelve Division I teams and eight Division II teams and oversees two Junior College teams. The Division I and II teams are members of the MCLA and each divisional winner receives an automatic bid to the MCLA National Tournament. The SLC is currently the only conference that has a Junior College Division made of teams that are not from four-year academic institutions.
