Spring 2023 Registration is Open!

Registration for Spring 2023 is now OPEN! Come join us for another exciting season of lacrosse!

We support competitive play for BOYS and GIRLS from kindergartern through high school. No experience is necessary to join our program; we want everyone who is interested in learning a new sport to feel welcome and encouraged to come try something new! We have equipment you can rent for the season.

If you want to give our program a try, feel welcome to come a preaseason workout or the first week of field practice for FREE to try it out. If you love it, then register. If not, then we appreciate your willingness to give it a go!

To our returning players, we are looking to build upon a great summer and fall.

Registration follows the following steps:

(1) Go to USA Lacrosse and activate or renew your membership (your active membership must run through June 5, 2023). Visit https://account.usalacrosse.com/login/ and either log back in to access your account or create a new one. Once you are finished registering, take note of your Membership Number and Expiration Date – you will need that for the next step. Why do you need to join USA Lacrosse? They are our insurance carrier- for the club, our coaches and your player. Plus they provide a ton of educational materials and other information that benefits us and your player.

(2) Go to Team Snap and begin the Club Registration process (https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/354870). Returning families can use the log-ins created for past seasons to access your accounts. New familires create new profiles. 

(3) Download the Team Snap app and use the log-in information you used for Step 2 to access team information, download schedules, and receive real-time communication specific to your player’s team. Players will be assigned to teams based largely on their age of 9/1/2022.

Questions please contact Jeff Kueter at criclacrosseclub@gmail.com.

High Schoolers Can Help Officiate Games

Our High School players are eligible to referee 10U and some 12U games this spring. These are paid opportunities and will not conflict with any high school games.

Their help will help them gain a broader perspective on the game, help them become better players, and help us to provide great opportunities for our younger boys and girls.

About us

Kingfisher Lacrosse is the first organized lacrosse club 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. 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!
