Play lacrosse with us this summer in the Backyard Lacrosse Program!
We will once again host the 6 session backyard lacrosse program on Tuesday nights in Solon beginning June 13 with a break during July 4th week. This program is a mix of drills followed by free play. We will split the group roughly by age.
This is a No-Contact event so no pads or gloves. Play emphasizes body control, positional defense/offense, stick handling, ground balls, and shooting. Registration will open next week. We had a lot of fun with this program last summer. It has something to offer for returning players and is especially for those just starting out.
Registration for this program can be found here. The program is open to all ages and skill levels, boys and girls.
Join us June 5 to join us for a season ending celebration, recognition, and equipment return! We will gather between 5:30-7pm.
We will meet at the pavilion next to the tennis courts at the Solon Recreation and Nature Area (where our main practice field is). The pavilion is located along Sovers St.
Plan to return all of your rented equipment and uniforms (not the practice pinnie - those are yours to keep).
FREE Learn to Play Lacrosse Clinic on July 15 & 22 in Mt Vernon!! Kingfisher is pleased to work with Mt Vernon Parks and Rec to introduce lacrosse to area girls and boys. Please share with friends, relatives, class mates, neighbors.
It is a great way to get a feel for the sport and see whether it could be for you.
Details available here.

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 email@example.com!

If you have an interest in coaching or officiating this year, we’re here to help. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your interest and we’ll connect you with the appropriate individuals to get you started.
