BOYS SPRING YOUTH LACROSSE
Blackhawks Lacrosse Club (formerly Crystal Lake Youth Lacrosse AKA the Crystal Lake Hawks) is proud to continue offering community lacrosse to Crystal Lake and the surrounding area!
Our boys teams participate in the IYLL (Illinois Youth Lacrosse League).
Registration will be open from November 1 to February 1.
Boys AGE Requirements and Divisions
For our full spring season players must be between grades 1-8.
Age Level breakdown as follows:
14U - 7th and 8th Grades
12U - 5th and 6th Grades
10U - 3rd and 4th Grades
8U - 1st and 2nd Grades
To comply with league rules, the Blackhawks will have Black and Red divisions at grade levels where we have multiple teams participating.
Pre-Season Indoor Practice
Our Pre-Season Indoor Practices generally begin in late February/early March and are an important way for coaches to evaluate players for team placement. Participation is strongly encouraged.
Season Practice Schedule
Outdoor practices will begin in mid to late March (weather permitting). Our home field location will be at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake. We also have a second practice location in Lake in the Hills, Richard Taylor Park.
There will generally be 2 scheduled practices for each team during the week. The days of the week will be determined by the coaches and the Blackhawks board to maximize field space and time for each team. Additional practices may be scheduled at the discretion of the Head Coach.
Season Game Schedule
The IYLL plans mini-tournament style game weekends, where all teams from an organization play in one location on the same weekend. There are generally 4-5 game weekends throughout the season at various locations, including Lippold Park. Each team will play on either Saturday or Sunday but not both days of the weekend; however, not all Blackhawks teams may play on the same day. Teams will generally play 2-3 games each weekend, for a total of 10-12 games over the course of the season.
