LCS is designed for the experienced and motivated lacrosse player so that they can continue to play and compete with their future/current teammates.

 

Objective

To magnify and elevate the level of lacrosse within the Lake County community by creating and offering a competitive program that continues to develop players while in parallel creating team continuity through high school.

 

Player Requirements

LCS encourages and welcomes multi-sport athletes and is designed to allow for

multi-sport participation. LCS is open to all experienced northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin lacrosse players.
