The Lake Zurich Lacrosse Club is now offering registration for Fall Lacrosse – Youth Boys for the upcoming Fall Season. As you know, we polled our families for interest in fall competition across the age groups. Based on the responses, we will be offering the following program for your son. These programs are geared toward skill development and ‘keeping a stick in hand’. Compared to league play, the LZLC fall program offers a large increase in the amount of active participation each boy will experience. The 2014-2015 US Lacrosse age groups are as follows:
Born on or after 9/1/1999*
Born on or after 9/1/2001
Born on or after 9/1/2003
Born on or after 9/1/2005
*No currently enrolled high school students

There is great oak firewood that has been split, stacked and ready for pick up in exchange for a discretionary donation to the LZ Lacrosse Club. Retail value of oak firewood is approximately $65.00 for a 60 piece pick, suggested donation is $30 for the same. Come fill up your trunk and support LZ Lacrosse Girls Teams at LZHS. The money raised will help to defer costs for new uniforms, coaches’ fees and indoor field time.
The firewood is self-serve and stacked curbside at 22064 West White Pine Road, Kildeer and can be picked up anytime, at your convenience. An honor box is on the porch. Your canceled check will be your tax deductible receipt. Only until supply lasts!
~Calling all families but specifically FRESHMEN parents-
LZLC is a CLUB sport (still) at LZHS and we are SELF FUNDED. We ask that every family step up and donate 2 hours of their time to keep our fees in check.
Thanks to the many people that stepped up to take on key roles so far but we all know it takes a village and there ARE STILL a few roles to fill.
IF you KNOW the role that you want to play, please reach out via email ASAP (see contact below).
There are MANY MANY others, so don't worry if there isn't something that you SEE here, we can FIND something for you. For example if you SEW, we make gifts for the graduating seniors that you can help out with!

Please let Janice Dickensen know if you'd like to tackle that responsibility at
A great game and a lot of FUN! See you all next August (1st week) in 2015~
Players from as far back as 2006 (Jeff Peterson) to 2017 (Nathan Bass & Ryan Beaupre) participated in our annual Alumni/Varsity Game. Thanks Coach Burke for making this happen (and both you and Coach Holden for playing like the boss that you know you are). And lastly, thanks to James Coleman for representing the reeeeealllly old crowd (the parents)!
Thanks Coaches Faris, Sutton and Vozas for coming out to hold the fort down.
As discussed in the team meeting during the Town Hall, LZHS Lacrosse will begin an off-season weight training and conditioning program. The program will start in November and run through the end of February. The off-season is a time that lacrosse athletes should be preparing their bodies for the rigors of the upcoming season. By providing athletes with sports appropriate strength and conditioning programs in the off-season, players and the program overall will become more competitive and effective, while reducing the risk for injury.
- Sessions begin this Tuesday, Nov. 5th and meet every Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (except for Thanksgiving week, Winter Break & Finals Week) 6:00 AM - 7:30 AM? in the LZHS Weight Room.
- Minimum of 2 days per week or 26 sessions over 13 weeks is suggested.
- Players participating in Fall or Winter sports should communicate that information to Coach Burke or Coach Sutton.
- Due to space limitations and time constraints Freshman are encouraged to participate in the program either as part of the morning sessions or on their own (Program can be found at http://leagueathletics.com/Page.asp?n=84027&org=lzlacrosse.com). If participating on their own, Freshman players should attend one session in November for baseline testing, and one in January and February for progress testing.
