Kingfisher Lacrosse represents the first organized club structure to appear in Eastern Iowa. Kingfisher Lacrosse is the operational name of the Cedar Rapids – Iowa City Lacrosse Club, a volunteer led, 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2020 to guide the development of youth lacrosse in the greater Cedar Rapids - Iowa City area. We partner with Parks & Recreation departments and other youth sports organizations to provide “learn to play” clinics while building separate competitive teams for boys and girls ages from elementary school through high school. Our long-term goal is to build multiple high school and youth teams for boys and girls in the greater Cedar Rapids - Iowa City area. These squads will develop their lacrosse skills and be provided the opportunity to play against other programs in Iowa and across the Midwest. Lacrosse is an emerging sport in Iowa, so no previous experience is necessary to join the program. Reach out to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are working on details for our fall offering. Our intent is to offer practice and play opportunities for all age groups and experience levels. Presently, we are in discussions with our sister clubs regarding game play options. Once that is in place, we will open registration for the fall season, tentatively slated to begin after Labor Day.
Email us if you would like to be placed on the distribution list for more information when it comes available – email@example.com.
