    2015 Seniors Play in Last Home Game


    Caroline Titel, McKenzie Morton, Kendall Gross, Ashley Kenney and Megan Kruse.

    Last Spring, five graduating seniors played in their last home games of their high school careers.  Caroline Titel, Kendall Gross, Ashley Kenney, and Megan Kruse are all Tremper Students while McKenzie Morton is a Wilmot Senior.  All the girls have played for the Kenosha Team for a number of years and all have been a HUGE part of growing the sport at the high school level in Kenosha and they were all a huge part of why the program was successful even from the first year in 2012.  They will all be missed and hard to replace.  We wish them all well in College and hope that they continue to enjoy the game of lacrosse at some level.


    4th of July Parade

    A huge thank you to all the players, parents and coaches that came out the walk and ride with us in the 4th of July Parade.  We had a large turn out and a lot of fun!  We will plan to do this again next year.  A special thanks to all those who organized and make the event a success!

    And last but not least a special thank you to John Sytkowski for making our Raptors banners for the trailer and Jennifer & Dean at Sun Fire Stables for loaning us their truck and trailer.  We couldn't have done it without you.

    Sportsmanship - Respect - Fun - Hard Work - Honor the Game

    Our players, coaches and parents will always strive to live up to these words:
     
    We will show Sportsmanship and Respect to the other teams players, coaches and parents, the officials and all involved in the game.  This goes for on and off the field before, during and after the games.

    As players and coaches we will work hard during practice and games and always remember to have fun doing it.

    All things we do on and off the field are meant to "Honor the Game".


    Mission Statement

    The Kenosha Raptors are dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of the game of lacrosse at all levels and preparing boys and girls for the field of competition.  We are about promoting teamwork, a strong emphasis on sportsmanship, positive coaching and most important - having fun.  In doing so, we are also advancing the sport of lacrosse in the Kenosha area.  We want each and every participant to feel like they have made a contribution to themselves as well as to their respective team, both on and off the field.

    LACROSSE WALL BALL DRILLS

     Every drill that you do- do it with both hands 50 times each!
     Always wear gloves when you are performing your routine- you play with gloves so why not practice with gloves
     Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall
     Perform this routine at least 4-5 times per week
     Each routine should be at least 20 minutes in length- if you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat drills starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
