The UBC Thunderbirds Lacrosse Sport Club won the BC Provincial Championships 2015-16 for the Canadian Western Field Lacrosse League, going undefeated in 2016. The Club was also designated Team of the Year by the UBC TSC Council.

The UBC Thunderbirds Lacrosse Sport Club was established in 2011 by Club founder Dan Millar. In the clubs early years of existence, the focus was on playing and teaching lacrosse for the love of the game.

Since the fall of 2013, as the club became more established, it sought competition from surrounding Universities in BC and Alberta. The UBC Thunderbirds Lacrosse Sport Club finished second in their inaugural intercollegiate tournament, setting the tone for things to come.

After having played exhibition games against Men’s club teams in the lower mainland the following spring, the Club joined the Canada West Field Lacrosse League (CWFLL) in the fall of 2014. Their inaugural season in the competitive league saw them achieve a record of 6-10, a 4th place finish in the league standings, and secure a birth in the Provincial Championships. Here, they finished as the runner-up in the Tier II championship.

From beginning as a group of friends who agreed to pass around a ball in first year residence, UBC TSC Lacrosse has gone on to go undefeated in the 2016 season, win the 2015-16 BC Provincial Championship, and be honored as Team of the Year in the UBC Thunderbirds Sport Clubs Department.
