Registration for the Spring 2022 season is now OPEN!
Registration is a 2-step process: Step (1) your player must have a membership with USA Lacrosse that is active through June 2022. You will need your player’s USA Lacrosse member number to complete our registration process so you are encouraged to visit https://www.usalacrosse.com and click the Join or Manage My Account buttons to obtain, renew or check on your USA Lacrosse membership. Once you have that member number, then you proceed to Step (2).
Step (2) visit https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/298519 to initiate the Club registration process. You will be prompted to create an account if you have never used Team Snap before – this account is for you, not your player. You will enter details about them in the next window (i.e., the Participant Details). This portal will collect information about you and your player, enable you to pay for registration and equipment rental fees (if you wish to exercise that option), and will establish your identities within the Team Snap communications/scheduling/team management portal (more on that later, but it is a very efficient and easy way for us to communicate with you about schedules, weather issues, etc).
Fees are $135 for all Girls; $135 for Boys ages 10 & under, and $220 for Boys ages 11 & over. Equipment rental for the Spring season is $75 for Boys (includes helmet, shoulder & elbow pads, gloves and stick) and $25 for Girls (includes goggles and stick).
PRACTICES AND GAMES FOR SPRING 2022
First indoor practices for Girls and Boys ages 11 and over will begin in Mt Vernon at the Lester Buresh Center on Saturday, February 5 and run each Saturday until March 5. (Tentatively one hour sessions as follows: All Girls at 8am, Boys 11-12 at 9am, and Boys 13 & over at 10am). We are looking for gym space to complement those sessions in Solon, Cedar Rapids, and IC/Coralville on week nights.
We will begin transitioning to on-field play in mid-March, weather and field conditions permitting. On field practices will be held at the Solon Recreation and Nature Area (same area as last year) The coaches are working on practice schedules (dates/times) right now. All 10 & under players will begin practicing in mid-March (following Spring Break). We plan to start field practices during the week after 5pm when possible to better accommodate schedules and travel times.
All age groups will have a game schedule. We presently are putting those together with our sister clubs across the state. Some travel is required (Des Moines, Ankeny, Meskwaki, Dubuque and Quad Cities are the potential destinations). We will strive to have 2 games scheduled whenever we travel to make good use of the time.
Practice & Game Schedules also will be loaded into the calendars supported by Team Snap (which you can sync with your iOS, Goggle or other calendar systems).

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!
