Lacrosse FUNdamentals Fall Clinics

The 2-day fall clinic is for beginners and returning 1st year players who want to brush up on skills. All skills taught will be non-contact using tennis balls. Sticks will be provided, or you can bring your own! 

All clinics will be at the Dunlap High School Stadium (turf).

5220 Legion Hall Rd, Dunlap, IL 61525

Sundays September 15th and 22nd

- Boys and Girls K-4th: 3:00-4:00 ($20).

- Boys and Girls 5th-8th: 4:15-5:30 ($25).

- HS girls: 4:15-5:30 ($25).

NEW! There will also be a separate goalie clinic before/after the regular clinic (depending on age group) for anyone interested in learning the basics of this position. Due to the limited amount of goalie gear we have, this clinic will also focus on non-contact skills of this position to allow for the most players to participate. Available protective gear may be rotated among players during a portion of the clinic to allow players to experience simulated goalie conditions. All new goalies during our regular season are expected to also play field positions, so learning all skills is necessary.

- Boys and Girls K-4th: 4:15-4:45 (after the regular clinic).

- Boys and Girls 5th-8th: 3:15-4:00 (before the regular clinic).

The Registration "2018/19 Clinics and Events" is not currently available.

What is the River Sticks?

The River Sticks is the name used for co-op CILAX teams. The purpose is to help the various CILAX leagues provide additional playing opportunities as a group, to field teams for all players outside of the regular season, or provide alternate growth opportunities during season. The summer RiverSticks is open to anyone who has played on a CILAX team, and hopes to add other opportunities as the number of players in the Central Illinois area grows. 

Why these tournaments?

The Washington, Dunlap and Bloomington leagues chose these tournaments for the River Sticks based on dates available for a variety of competitive offerings, with at least one tournament at all levels. These dates also allow the 12U/14U boys to participate in the Titans summer league without conflict of tournament dates. 

Who is the coach?

Your coach will be one of the CILAX team coaches from any of the leagues, depending on who would like to volunteer to lead the group. Because we are having coaches volunteer to lead the team, we can keep the costs to the minimum to cover the practice field rental, the coach's travel cost, and the tournament entry fee. We will know who the coach will be closer to the practice week. When coaches are known, they will be listed under the ticket description. 

Who will be on my team?

Registrations are taken in the order they are received, and anyone from a CILAX team can join. Although all the leagues want to promote competitive play, summer is a difficult time to guarantee player numbers. Therefore, the opportunity is open to anyone who is available to play. Also, since every team needs a goalie, any goalie who played on a league will not pay a registration fee, and only needs a River Sticks jersey. A maximum of 2 goalies would be needed for a team.

When are the practices?

Practices will take place at one of the club fields, depending on availability. Times will be similar to regular season practices (early evening). We will not know the exact days until closer to the tournament, but please leave the week before the event fairly free for 2-3 evening practices.
