Kingfisher Day with the Dogfish

On Sunday, July 21, it is "Kingfisher Day" at the Iowa Dogfish, eastern Iowa's adult box lacrosse team! The Dogfish have a double header that day against the Minneapolis Wheat Kings. Game times are 11am and 2pm.

Fun activities and give-aways are planned, including:

  • free play on the floor between games - expected 1:15 pm - 1:45 pm
  • recognition of Kingfisher program and state winning teams (so the 10U Girls, 14U Boys and the HS Boys)
  • meet the players and additional free time on floor after the conclusion of the second game
  • Free giveaways and 50/50 raffle
  • If any families would like to join the Dogfish after the games, they are heading to Big Grove Cedar Rapids after the games

All players are asked to wear their jerseys, pinnies or other Kingfisher gear to represent!

If you wish to participate in the on-field activities, you have to complete the waiver found at the ImOn Arena Waiver. (Note: this waiver is designed for ice skating so infer appropriately)

The Dogfish play at ImOn Ice Arena in Cedar Rapids (1100 Rockford Dr SW, Cedar Rapids, IA).

Ticket sales are on-site only.


Wall Ball - Get Better at Home!

We are proud of the progress all our players have made, but we know there is always room for growth. The best players in the world use Wall Ball as a means to reinforce fundamental skills of short, quick passing and catching. Doing so regularly improves hand-eye coordination, stick skills, and cradling – all things every Kingfisher player can work on.

The coaches prepared this Wall Ball Guide suitable for any Kingfisher player. You can adjust the reps as your skills improve or as time allows. 

If you can find a few minutes every day or 2-3 times per week to go through this progression, you will be a better lacrosse player for it.

Fall Lacrosse Update

We will play lacrosse this fall! Fall lacrosse is a quick 6-7 week season beginning after Labor Day and concluding with tournament play in mid-October in Des Moines (and Kansas City for eligible teams). This is a full contact program, but often involves short-sided play. It’s a faster version of the game involving fewer players. We will support 1-2 practices per week to enable players to participate in other activities/sports and, for those returning players who just want to come to the two game days, we can accomodate that too.

Fall is also the first chance for players to test out their new age groups as players moving up do so on September 1 when the new USA Lacrosse year begins.

More details to come! Sign-up for the Kingfisher email list to be sure to receive more information as it comes available.

Upcoming Learn to Play Clinics

Kingfisher works with area Parks and Recreation departments to host learn to play clinics as we work to expose more players and families to lacrosse. Please share these opportunities with your friends, neighbors, classmates, or through other networks to help us spread the word about lacrosse!

Coralville – August 25 – time TBD (Coralville Youth Sports Complex)

Recruiting Information

Are you thinking that college lacrosse could be for you? 

A key first step is understanding the timeline – find some details on that here for the boys and here for the girls.

A second step is to get some film of yourself playing. Your parent or another spectator can usually help out to get the raw footage and then you use a video editor to splice together some highlights. You also can hire a recruiting service to do that for you, but it is not essential. 

Third, do your research. We will do our best to find play opportunities next summer where college coaches can take a look at us, but you are your own best advocate. As you identify a school you like (because you like the school, its academics, where it is, etc), then reach out to the coach to let them know you have an interest in their program.

Four, we will begin sharing information about prospect days and other camp opportunities in the region, attending those when possible is a good way to meet coaches in person, ask them questions about their programs or recruiting generally, and have them see you in competition with other athletes in a closed environment.

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!
