About us

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 kingfisherlacrosse@gmail.com!

Fall 2021 Registration Open

The fall season continues our focus on skill development and reinforcement, while adding some competitive play. We are working with our sister clubs in the Des Moines area for two days of gameplay for each age group (numbers depending) with one day held in Solon and one in the Des Moines area. Those gamedays are TBD, but will be on a weekend day (likely a Saturday). We should know them right around the time practices begin.

Like the summer program, fall is designed to be flexible and accommodate schedules. Our principal objectives are to expose players to competitive gameplay (of particular importance to our players who just joined us over the summer) and to reinforce skills before we all take a winter break.
