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 a variety of commitment levels: playing once, twice or three times per 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 are coaches of high school varsity teams.  NEW FOR FALL 2017-Teams practices are on Saturday mornings.

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 FALL 2017-High School division players can chose to play in just the games program.

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. NEW FOR FALL 2017-Palos Township and Arlington Heights added as Skill Session locations
Skill Session Locations: Northbrook (Techny Divine Word Church), Hinsdale (KLM Park), Arlington Heights, (Patriots Park), Palos Township (147th and Ridgeland)

The Chicago Stars schedule allows players interested in taking the next step with Lakeshore’s Midwest Select the flexibility to participate in both programs.
