Traditional Rec Program
This program provides the opportunity to learn and play lacrosse in a recreation league format. Our primary objective is to provide a positive and fun environment in which to can boys can learn the game of lacrosse. As a program we are focused on developing both the lacrosse skills and sportsmanship.
Boys in grades 1 - 8 are eligible to participate in these programs.
Boys in grades 1 and 2 are classified as Lil' Scoopers
Boys in grades 3 and 4 are classified as Bantams
Boys in grades 5 and 6 are classified as Juniors
Boys in grades 7 and 8 are classified as Seniors
Registration for the Spring season opens in the Fall of the preceding year and runs thru March.
The season runs from March through June; with games starting in April.
League: The LCL teams are under the umbrella of MAYLA which is a spring recreations league. Other teams in the conference that we may play are:
North Shore (Milw.),
Tri City (Oak Creek, Cudahy, South Milw.),
University School of Milwaukee (USM)
There may also be opportunities to play games with club teams from outside of the league as the schedule allows.> As a member of MAYLA, Lake Country also participates in the annual Laxtravaganza festival. Laxtravaganza is a two day event held near the end of the season where all of the MAYLA teams play each in a round robin fashion for the joy of the game.
This season we have partnered with the coaching staff at Arrowhead and scheduled additional pre-season indoor sessions during February and March at Midwest Orthopedic Soccer Complex (MOSC) for lacrosse clinics to include Stick Skills, Offense and Defense, Goalie/Face-Offs and Shooting. There will be player assessments in March at MOSC in order to establish balanced teams prior to the beginning of the season. We will be sending out an email and updating our website when the confirmed dates have been determined.
