The Women's Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA) is a national organization of over 200 non-NCAA, women's college lacrosse programs organized and run by US Lacrosse, the national governing body. The mission of the WCLA is to promote the growth of women’s lacrosse nationwide. Specifically, WCLA strives to provide an infrastructure in which collegiate clubs will compete and eventually crown a National Champion. Until January 2011, the WCLA was known as US Lacrosse Women's Division Intercollegiate Associates (WDIA).
