Lacrosse is a new and rapidly growing sport across the United States. Dunlap Youth Lacrosse strives to provide clinic/workshop opportunities to interested families to try the sport before signing up for our full season in Spring. The clinics are also a great chance to get questions answered about the game and overall season.

To continue to grow our program players outside of Dunlap are welcome! No residency requirements!

NEW: Dunlap school district currently has a co-op with Peoria and IVC school districts for IHSA lacrosse.
