Crown Point Lacrosse 8U

8U Boys Lacrosse is open to all players in grades k-2 under the age of 8.


We are excited to be in our 9th youth season and love watching the progression of our players. Several of our former youth coaches from seasons past as well as some new coaching faces will be joining us this year as it promises to be even better than the one before it.


This season our youth teams will again join the IBLA (Illinois Boys Lacrosse
Association) League which will provide us with many teams to play and a proper schedule. Over the course of the next season, our 8U team will practice, play, scrimmage, and compete over and over and will attend up to 2 travel tournaments.


Indoor practices begin once weekly in February and move outdoors twice a week by the end of March. Games will begin in early April and conclude in early June.
 

(8U lacrosse is open to boys and girls, US Lacrosse boys lacrosse game play and rules apply and full gear is required)
 

Team Philosophy & Expectations


The mission of the Crown Point Lacrosse club shall be to provide student athletes and
families with an opportunity to develop their lacrosse skills in a safe environment that
promotes personal growth and excellence while fostering teamwork, leadership,
scholarship, and respect for others and self. Also to develop players skill in a
competitive environment that prepares them to compete and contribute to the best of
their abilities during their years of playing for Crown Point Lacrosse Club and
beyond.


The 10U and 8U players will be considered developmental teams and will be
coached as such. All the participants will be introduced to entry-level skills and taught
the fundamentals of the game while nurturing cooperation and sportsmanship. We
wish to provide a positive experience for all the participants with the hopes of
returning players year after year.


Each player is expected to participate equally at practice and other lacrosse team
events. We will do our very best to create equal time for all players. We realize some
players may not be at all practices while others will be at more practices. As such, we
must remain fair and equitable to the player’s playtime in direct proportion to
participation levels.


We thank you for your understanding and cooperation with the goals and
expectations of the 10U and 8U teams. We hope each participant has fun while
learning the game of lacrosse.

FUNDRAISING
We are a self-supported, not-for-profit organization and depend on the monies raised by organized fundraising activities and business donations. Fundraising is essential to the continuation and growth of this program. Monies raised in fundraising will help purchase team equipment, indoor practice space, coaching and league/tournament fees.


All players are required to participate in the fundraising activities provided by the
program You will have 2 fundraising options:
1. Purchase $100 worth of raffle tickets (10 @ 10$ each) to either keep for
yourself or sell to others.
2. Solicit a Business/Corporation/friend/family to sponsor a player and sell 0
raffle tickets.
· If a player/family solicits a $250 Business/Corporate Sponsorship
will satisfy the requirement for the first 10 raffle tickets.
· For families with multiple players, additional raffle card
responsibility can be eliminated as follows:
