The Men's and Women's Conference Landscape of 2022-23


Conference realignment can be confusing. We get it.

We also understand the added layers of confusion that come during a time of more realignment than ever before. Several conferences across both men’s and women’s lacrosse will look distinctly different during the 2023 season, not to mention further changes are scheduled for the future.

But we’re not concerning ourselves with all that just yet. We live in the now, so with fall ball upon us, let’s take a look at the conference landscapes for the 2023 season.
