Boy's High School Player Meeting with Coach Connor Nelson

We will be having a PLAYER MEETING to introduce Coach Connor Nelson. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend as well along with younger players or parents that wish to meet and welcome Connor to the Raptors.

Connor will be talking about his vision for the boys high school program, this season and beyond and he wants to meet as many players as possible before we start our winter indoor training.

We will be meeting at Tremper High School, on Monday October 16th in the auditorium at 7:00 pm. The meeting won't take long, but you will have an opportunity to talk to Coach Connor during or after the meeting.

Please attend if you are able.


We need your help!

Hey Raptor parents - We have both good news and more opportunities.

Good news first, we found our new club secretary. Welcome aboard to Alyssa Knudsen

Now for your opportunities.
1. We are still in need of a club treasurer to help us organize our finances in Quickbooks each month. You don't need to pay any bills or be responsible for the money.
2. We also need a new girls director to be in charge of the youth program.

Anyone interested in either of these great opportunities can email me at KenoshaLacrosseClub@yahoo.com and set up a time to talk and I can send you the job descriptions.

this is great way to help shape the club for not only your kids but for all the kids that are playing now and into the future. It really doesn't require that much time.


Jacob Hoening and Amplify 17 Select went undefeated in bringing home the GOLD at the Pipe City Tournament!

Girls High School Lacrosse in KUSD - Spring of 2018!!

Update August 22, 2017

After only 5 seasons of being a club team in Kenosha, we have succeeded in getting GIRLS Lacrosse added as an official Spring Sport in KUSD in 2018. Thanks to all the girls that have played for us over the years and coaches that helped us grow to this point. On to a new chapter in girls lacrosse in Kenosha.

Our work is NOT done. The Raptors will continue to support the high school program by teaching the youth of Kenosha about the sport and providing the HS team with new players every year.

We have already started to ask the school board how we can go about getting the boys the opportunity to play for KUSD as well. We will keep working on this issue until all our kids get to play.

Congrats girls and we look forward to a great 1st season in 2018! Start think of a Team Name.


"Winner Winner Chicken Dinner"


Not really a Chicken diner, but Niko Therman from the Boy's Senior team is this years winner of the $100 Raptors Spirit Wear Gift Card (even better than a Chicken diner).

Each player in the club, that sold more than 20 Cards, was entered into the drawing. Congrats Niko and thanks for your support in selling so many cards!

    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.
