Team Practices

2x per week
Option to add 5 week skill clinic (1x per week)

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 or coached collegiate-level lacrosse, some are certified officials and many are coaches of high school varsity teams.

In 2018, teams practiced Saturday mornings in a central location (please note, HS teams practice on Sunday mornings in the fall) as well as Wednesdays. HS teams practice in the Glenview area on Wednesdays; youth teams practice in the Glenview area during the summer and regionally (Hinsdale and Glenview) in the fall.

2019 practice information coming soon.

 

NCAA Recruiting

When players come to Lakeshore hoping to prepare to play at the collegiate level, we do more than just develop their skills—we ensure that they have the best opportunities to be recognized by recruiters and coaches. All National Premier players have access to this information. Lakeshore will host Recruiting Realities Seminars during the year. We encourage players to attend at least one of these to learn more about the process.

Lakeshore NCAA Recruiting Package
Families have the option to purchase a separate Recruiting Package for additional recruiting support. This is the opportunity to work with one of Lakeshore’s Recruiting Specialists, who will proactively communicate with NCAA coaches on your behalf.
