Iowa youth lacrosse clubs are back on the fields this spring despite the challenges of the pandemic. With Iowa schools offering spring sports, all our clubs report they will also be offering a spring season, and will continue with their COVID19 protocols to help protect players, coaches, officials and fans that participate. ILAX is again offering a competitive league for boys this spring at the U14, U12, and U10 levels with games in April through early June. More details on a league schedule will be shared once participation levels are known.
As is the case across the country, boys and girls in Iowa are discovering the exciting sport of lacrosse. If you are interested in trying lacrosse, or have played in the past and are looking for a new lacrosse home, there are several clubs in the state with youth programs. More information about those clubs is available here.
ILAX OFFERS MENS & WOMENS GAME TRAINING
Starting with classroom training in January and February, ILAX has helped facilitate US Lacrosse officials training for new officials. The effort culminated with 3 mens officials being evaluated on field during high school boys scrimmages at Tiger Field in West Des Moines on March 7. Those officials are now credentialed and can work high school games.
Bob Hoffer from Omaha did the US Lacrosse evaluations, and the event also attracted several local officials from other sports that were able to shadow the action. More recruiting and training is being planned. Anyone with interest in becoming an official should contact the Association.
