Gaucho Lacrosse Number Sponsorship



Dear Gaucho Alumni and Family,


The Gaucho Lacrosse Alumni Association would like to announce the return of the highly successful Number Sponsorship Program that will be officially rolled for the holidays and close February 1, 2015. Last year, the program accounted for nearly 25% of the money raised by the alumni.
The Number Sponsorship Program is a unique way for former Gaucho players to support the program and connect with the current team.

The Details:

1. With a minimum donation and by declaring your intention to "sponsor a number", your Name, Position, and Class Year will be listed on a plaque alongside your teammates and fellow donors. The plaque will be displayed on campus at UCSB.

2. The current Gaucho player who shares your jersey number will write you a "Thank You Email", introducing himself to you, and thereby opening up a two way line of communication between current players and alumni. In previous years, this has been a hand written letter, but email will hopefully open the lines of communication. This email will serve as the first step in building a relationship, friendship, and mentorship with the team...or simply allow you to become familiar with someone on the current team when you return to watch a game.

3. Your number sponsorship is good for one year.

4. In the event there is no one wearing your number, we will have any player whose number was NOT sponsored take on the role and reach out with his "thank you" in order to connect you with a player.

5. Donors may also choose to sponsor the number of a family member of a former teammate who has passed away.


6. Donations made after October 1, 2014 (e.g. Last Man Standing) can be counted towards this program.

Sponsorship Levels:

- With a $200 donation, the donor will receive a "thank-you" from the current player with that number.

- With a $350 donation, the donor will receive the letter and a team shooting shirt or polo with the number on it.

- With a $500 or more donation, the donor will receive a letter, shirt or polo, and a sweatshirt with the number on it.
- You may also choose to donate greater than $350 without receiving a gift.

If you are interested in sponsoring your number for this season, please follow the link below:

Brothers on and off the field since 1970


Since the very first season in 1970 the bonds formed on the turf, continued to grow even after the last whistle was blown. Through four years of blood, sweat, tears, and joy, lasting friendships have formed and this website is dedicated to maintaining those ties and to keeping the Gaucho lacrosse brotherhood informed. 


Four years pass all too quickly, and life takes many of us to far off, and not so far off places. Despite time and distance we recognize that the success enjoyed on the field was not by chance, but through hard work, dedication, and the support of our families, coaches, and alumni.


In 2012, in order to increase support to the UCSB Men’s Lacrosse program, an Alumni Association was formed and Board of Directors was created to direct alumni resources.  This new Board is comprised of 15 former players spanning five decades. Through fundraising, recruiting, and mentoring, the Board is charged with keeping the rich and storied lacrosse legacy at UCSB alive and competitive.  


We hope that you visit this page often, as there will be regular updates and events scheduled with the goal of supporting this year’s teams effort to brining home a National Title.


Stay tuned, and as always, GO GAUCHOS!!
