What's new in Youth Lacrosse for Spring 2018?

We are constantly working to ensure our growing program continues to evolve to meet the needs of our players and community.  Your feedback is critical to our success and we hear you! 

We are excited to share some of the changes we are making for 2018

  • New Age Divisions:  
    • U8: Grades K - 2nd
    • U10: Grades 3rd - 4th

  • New league!  All levels of Wauconda Bulldogs will be playing in the IBLA league which has been around for several years.  The Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association (IBLA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth lacrosse teams with a league in which to compete with the same rules, regulations, and structure as high school leagues. The IBLA offers teams the opportunity to play with other local teams, grouping them by region, and competing for a championship. Our organization adds legitimacy to youth lacrosse, helping young players to prepare for their future playing careers at the high school level.  
  • No playing up: Guidelines and eligibility requirements, such as age and previous level of participation, have been established to encourage and maximize participation, as well as promote safety. All who participate in the game of lacrosse must be thoroughly acquainted with these rules and regulations, and should assume the responsibility for their observance and enforcement. Attempts to circumvent eligibility rules, or to use ineligible players, shall be considered unacceptable conduct. 
  • Coaches:  All lacrosse team coaches will be selected and approved by the BYS lacrosse board.  If you are interested in coaching, please email us
  • Post season Tournaments:  For the past 2 seasons we have fielded teams to play in post season competitive tournaments (June-July).  During registration you will be asked if you have interest should your age level field a team.  Additional details: 
    • There is an extra cost per tournament
    • Tournament locations are Chicagoland and Wis.  
    • The team levels that are entered depends on interest and skill level  - tryouts may occur
    • We will be fielding teams under the name Wauconda Select
