    PROGRAM OVERVIEW

    Registration for the 2016 Spring Travel and Learn-2-Lax programs is now open at https://lakeforestlax.sportngin.com/register/form/206363850.  

    Based on your great feedback from the last couple years, we have made some significant and positive changes to enhance your players’ experiences with the LFLA Spring Travel program.

    The highlights of the Spring Travel Program are as follows:

    • Top coaching staff, run by LFLA's Director of Coaching James Gurick, with two paid coaches per team
    • Target of 18 players per team (smaller than the 22 player teams last year - more playing time and better player-to-coach ratio)
    • Age Levels: U9-U15, there will be teams for all skill levels (we will have Learn-2-Lax for the U7 players as well)
      • Each player who registers will have a roster spot, players will not be cut
      • Players will be evaluated and assigned to a team during the first few practices
    • Season begins March 9th, and ends with IBLA playoffs (Date TBD - Either June 4th  & 5th or June 11th & 12th)
      • Indoor practices at the Highland Park Field House (the "Bubble") during March and April
      • Outdoor practices at Banner Day Camp beginning the week of April 4th
      • Three weekly outdoor practices
    • Full schedule of approximately 20 games (weather permitting)
      • Three invitational tournaments
      • Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association year end tournament
      • 10-15 additional non-tournament games
    • Top-tier uniform package, including full game and practice uniforms and shooter shirt
    • New Cascade R helmet (the state of the art in player safety, standardized on new LFLA colors and heavily discounted and subsidized by LFLA)
