The Park Ridge Lacrosse program provides an opportunity for players who want to participate in lacrosse against local teams in the Chicagoland area through the Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association (IBLA). The league is for all levels (from beginners to experienced) with experience coached to teach basic fundamentals to advance skills and drill. Practices and games will be local (half the games at home while the other half at towns nearby)
Teams are broken down based on player age and will range from ages 6 to 14 (1st grade to 8th grade). Grades are based on the Park Ridge cuttoff of Septermber 1 of each year. The skill level of the team will determine what level of competition we will play in for the age group.
The league does require a USA lacrosse membership for insurance purposes. The cost is $30/Player. If your child has a membership for another program, it can be used here. This will be verified during registration.
The Spring Program practice will run from late March to early June. Games will take place mostly on Sundays.
In June each team will have the opportunity for an end of season tournament. Guaranteed 2 games. Location TBD and different locations for each age group.
According to the IBLA, we will play at least 8 season games with half played at home (Home games are TBA and will be at ND, Maine South HS or NiRidge Park) and 2 playoff games at future destination. From talking to the IBLA, most teams schedule games on Sundays. Our games are TBD, but most likely on Sundays
We will have dedicated coaches for each team to ensure consistency. Click here for current coaches
