Our fall program gets underway just after Labor Day! Fall lacrosse is a great way for new players to transition into the game, for returning players to try new positions, and for all to get used to playing with new age groups.
Registration is two steps: (1) Obtain a USA Lacrosse membership (or renew if needed) at https://account.usalacrosse.com/login/ (make note of the membership number) then (2) go to https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/387017.
October 14 Play Day -- Play culminates with an All-Iowa play day in Des Moines on Oct 14. Boys and girls teams from Iowa and elsewhere in the Midwest will gather for a day of games. The Oct 14 event is open to all our players (so even if you do not sign up for the fall program, you may still play on Oct 14 -- there is an option in the Registration portal for you to select so we know who is planning to participate; you complete the registration form and submit it like normal only there is no charge).
Kansas City Tournament -- We also would like to take players to Kansas City for a tournament there on Oct 21-22. They are supporting 7v7 and full field play (boys and girls). Registration for the tournament closes on Sept 1 so we ask all those planning to participate to register no later than Aug 28 so we can determine if we have enough players to participate, how many teams, what divisions, etc. Should we not participate, all fees collected will be reimbursed promptly.
Practice Schedule -- We will offer two practices per week -- Sundays in Coralville and Tues/Weds at Mt Mercy in Cedar Rapids. Times and age group assignments will be made shortly.
Looking forward to working with our new and returning players this fall! If you want to try out lacrosse, please feel welcome to attend a practice FREE and get a feel for the sport and our program!
We would like all players to try and attend at least one practice per week. We understand you may be involved in other sports/activities this fall, focus on those too. Our fall season is for you to improve skills, get acclimated to new teammates and positions on the field, and get additional reps in preparation for the spring competitive season.

11-12:30pm – All Girls
11-12:30pm – 10 & Under Boys

NOTE: (1) All practice schedules will be loaded onto TeamSnap for you to download and sync. Any changes to the schedule (weather cancellations, unexpected delays, etc) will be communicated via that platform and (2) specific end date of the fall season depends on total registration and whether teams are being sent to Kansas City in your age group.

Kingfisher had quite a championship season in June! The High School boys secured the Eastern Iowa Lacrosse Conference championship with a win over arch rival Quad Cities. The 11-12 boys won the ILAX State Championship to complete an undefeated season! And the 10U boys outplayed their seed and took 3rd!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org!
