Lincoln-Way Lacrosse Club was formed in the spring of 2007 and currently provides lacrosse opportunities for girls and boys in grades K thru 12.  Our co-operative high school program consists of players from Lincoln-Way High School District 210, which includes Lincoln- Way East, Central, and West.

                                                                                                                                               
The goal of our team is to provide a safe and productive environment that enables young athletes to learn and apply the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and sportsmanship. We facilitate the development of strength and character in every player.

We strive to teach all players to Honor and Respect the game.

Participation in our Youth program is open to all K through 8th grade students that live inside and outside Lincoln-Way District 210. To participate in the High School program you must attend a District 210 school.
 
We are sustained by the efforts of volunteers who display an extraordinary amount of commitment and hard work, ensuring that our team is a positive influence in the lives of our players. We also strive to provide a service to our community by providing a healthy outlet for children and opportunities for the community to unite.
 

Sportsmanship - Teamwork - Strength - Character - Discipline - Dedication

LWLC participates in indoor and outdoor lacrosse programs for every type of player from beginner to advanced.

These programs emphasize the fundamentals of lacrosse, which include catching, passing, scooping, dodging, and defense. Participants will do drills designed to teach and develop these skills as well as team concepts to be used in intra-squad scrimmages.

Emphasis in practices and scrimmages will be on skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
