CHICAGO STARS

Lakeshore Chicago Stars is a program for players looking for competitive play through weekly practices and games in the Chicagoland area.  The players range from grade school to high school, but have something important in common: They’re all serious about lacrosse. They want to develop their skills without having to travel very far.

Chicago Stars offers players the option to play once or twice a week.

Team Practices:  Players advance their individual stick skills, develop team work, master game concepts and have fun while working with the best coaches around—they all played collegiate-level lacrosse, some are certified officials and many coach high school varsity teams.
NEW FOR SUMMER 2018-Team Practices are on Thursday evening, preceding the weekly game

Games:  Teams participate in weekly games where they put into action the strategies emphasized on during the team practice.  Guest Coaches conduct clinics on select gamedays, specializing in midfield, attack, defense, and goalie concepts.
NEW FOR SUMMER 2018-Games take place on Thursday evenings in a central location.

Skill Sessions: Skill Sessions are a great opportunity for experienced and beginner players alike to focus on the continued development of their stick skills.  Groups are divided based on age and skill level.  Experienced players participate in high level drills as they fine tune their techniques.  Beginner players work through stations where to develop fundamental skills.
SUMMER 2018 Skill Session locations include:
Northbrook (Techny Divine Word Church), Hinsdale (KLM Park), Arlington Heights, (Patriots Park), Palos Township (147th and Ridgeland)

The Chicago Stars Travel schedule allows the flexibility for players to also participate in Midwest Select Travel, the next step of Lakeshore Travel.
