Boy's Hire New High School Coach - Connor Nelson

The Kenosha Raptors are super excited to announce that we have found the coach that we believe will help us take Boys Kenosha LAX to the next level! Connor Nelson is a highly skilled and decorated 2017 graduate from Carthage College and he has agreed to take on his next challenge. He plans to not only grow the Kenosha program, but help our high school players reach their individual and team potential as well. He sees an exciting future for Kenosha LAX!

Connor grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where he started playing lacrosse in the 7th grade. After experiencing the fastest sport on 2 feet he immediately fell in love. Connor played lacrosse all 4 years in high school as well as a couple varsity football seasons, winning an Ohio Division 1 high school football championship. Then, he went on to pursue lacrosse at Carthage all 4 years while obtaining a degree in business marketing. There, Connor had a successful career achieving many individual and team accomplishments. Connor states "After graduating, I realized that I needed to be involved in the sport that gave me such great experiences and opened many doors for me. Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, especially the Midwest. I want to bring a new paradigm to Kenosha high school men's lacrosse."

Update November 2017

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.

     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.
