Lakeshore Lacrosse offers lacrosse regional and national travel teams and clinics for women and girls all year round. Our girls’ lacrosse travel teams, leagues and clinics are instructed by experienced coaches have been teaching and playing lacrosse for years in a variety of competitive settings. Some of us also coach at highly competitive high school programs such as Michelle Sebastian, former head coach of Hinsdale Central High School Women's Lacrosse team, who led the school to its first Illinois High School Women's Lacrosse State Champion title in 2007. Our Lakeshore Lacrosse and IGLA (www.iglax.org) summer girls' lacrosse regional and national travel teams and camps are a fun way to meet new friends and play with girls of a similar age. Girls from 3rd to 12th grade practice all around Chicagoland and compete in games officiated by US Lacrosse certified women's lacrosse umpires. Our Regional Travel League offers three levels of play; one for elementary lax players, one for middle school lax players and one for more experienced lacrosse athletes who are interested in or are currently playing at the high school JV or varsity level. Our most competitive laxers participate in our National Travel Team program. These teams go to national tournaments as well as local competitions in Chicago, greater Illinois and the Midwest. The National Travel Team consists of graduation year specific teams: Team 2014, Team 2015, Team 2016, Team 2017, Team 2018, Team 2019 and Team 2020. The regional Travel Teams group graduation years together to create teams that compete against other Lakehsore Regional Teams. Additionally, the Lakeshore Women's Lacrosse Club offers a lakefront league, designed for experienced adult women who played or currently play lacrosse in high school and/or college and want to keep their lax skills in check. The Lakeshore Women's Lacrosse Club also travels to tournaments around Chicago, the Midwest and beyond. The LWLC has competed in the Vail Shootout in CO, the National Tournament in PA, and the Lake Tahoe Tournament in NV.
In the fall things really start heating up! The Regional Travel teams showcase fall colors in beautiful area parks and excellent off-season girls' lacrosse. Our National Travel teams attend both out of state and local tournaments to keep their skills in check. In October Lakeshore Lacrosse hosts the Chi-Town Classic. This tournament brings in youth, high school, college women's lacrosse teams, and post collegiate teams from all over the Midwest to play on the Chicago lake front at Montrose Park.
And we don't cool down for the winter. Indoor lacrosse is all about games and the so-called "fastest game on two feet" gets a turbo boost. Several indoor sports facilities around Chicagoland play host to fast-paced 7v7 girls' and women’s lacrosse leagues. Players sharpen their skills for the spring season with lots of playing time and a specialized goalie clinic to help keepers keep their cool in the crease.
In the spring we see our high school players off to lead their teams through the regular high school lacrosse season. Elementary and middle school girls get to watch their older sisters play and enjoy fun recreational lacrosse with the Illinois Girls Lacrosse Association (www.iglax.org)
The IGLA, which we at Lakeshore Lacrosse like to think of as our little sister, provides opportunities for all girls from 3rd grade to 8th grade to play lacrosse.
Additionally, Lakeshore Lacrosse offers private instruction year round, specialty camps and clinics and information on equipment as well as field lining consultation with the Accu-Arc women's lacrosse field lining tool.
