Fall '22 Program

Kingfisher Lacrosse is sponsoring a weekly lacrosse program in Fall 2022! Open to boys (ages 5-18)! Whether you are just playing for the first time or have some experience, the Fall program is designed to reinforce fundamentals, introduce team play concepts, and build camaraderie.

What will I learn? All the basic skills to succeed in lacrosse but that also translate to lots of other sports –hand-eye coordination, agility and moving with/without the ball, ball control, handling the stick, throwing and catching, and working with small teams.

What am I committing to? For Boys, a 90-minute weekly program consisting of drills to introduce skills followed by scrimmage play. For Girls, 3 clinic/play days involving other teams where participants will perform drills followed by game play.

When/Where?

For Boys: Sundays, September 11 through October 30 @ Solon, (Solon Recreation and Nature Area (700 W Sovers St, Solon, IA) – field adjacent to the high school baseball field). Game play scheduled on Oct 15 in Des Moines; presently scheduling gameplay in our area. Times (by age as of 9/1/22 – contact us with questions).

Practice times: 10&U (10-11am); 11&12 (11-12:30pm); and 13&Over (12:30-2pm).

Cost: For Boys, $50 + Equipment rental (if needed), $25.  All participants must be members of USA Lacrosse (for insurance purposes) – visit https://membership.usalacrosse.com/login to get started or recover your membership number.

For Girls, please attend the Free Clinic scheduled for 10/2.

There is no charge for the fall programs. Any playing equipment will be provided for free. Players will need a mouth guard and cleats.

Girls Learn to Play Clinic -- Oct 2

What will I learn? All the basic skills to succeed in lacrosse but that also translate to lots of other sports –hand-eye coordination, agility and moving with/without the ball, ball control, handling the stick, throwing and catching, and working with small teams.

What am I committing to? A 90-minute program consisting of drills to introduce skills followed by no contact scrimmage play.

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!
