About Bandits Lacrosse

Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Based Lacrosse Program for
Girls in 1st through 8th grades

Bandits Lacrosse is the local youth program that will introduce your daughters to lacrosse and help them develop them into skilled lacrosse players, all within our culture of best effort, discipline, positivism, and fun. This Spring we celebrate our 11th year!

Bandits Lacrosse offers skills training, specialized training, team practices, team leagues, and “house leagues” for girls, 1st through 8th grades. We will help your daughters master the skills of lacrosse, have fun in doing so, and most importantly, help build self confidence and resiliency that will benefit her in all areas of her life.  Our goal is to help transform our youth players through youth lacrosse, by providing high quality coaching, instruction, and mentorship.  The Bandits also offer “Rookies Lacrosse”– 7 week clinics for 1st-2nd grade beginning lacrosse instruction.

Our aim is attract those parents and players who want more than just recreational level lacrosse in the Fall and the Spring in our community. We recently added Summer Lacrosse which we operate for the Lake Forest Recreation Department.  We are the feeder program for Lake Forest High School Girls Lacrosse.  Bandits lacrosse program operates in the land between Recreation program lacrosse and expensive elite travel lacrosse, where your daughters can enjoy travel team-lite type lacrosse training and experiences in our community based structure.  Why pay expensive travel team fees and drive long distances for practices when you can practice locally?

We will prepare your daughter physically and mentally for her future lacrosse in high school and/or elite travel lacrosse teams through our intensive training model which focuses on fundamentals of lacrosse, through training hard and team work.  Whether your daughter is new to lacrosse or an elite player, we will teach your daughter lacrosse and what it takes to be the best player they can possibly be. The Bandits are the local place to play and train throughout the year.    Our model works…… our girls are enjoying lacrosse, feeling good about themselves, working hard while competing with others, and making varsity high school lacrosse teams.  Many of our past and current Bandits are excelling on Select Travel teams in the summer and their high school teams in the spring.  We now have a number of our Bandits playing D-1 and D-3 lacrosse in college.

Bandits Lacrosse Club, Inc. is a 501c3 not for profit organization.  We are in this for the girls, their development, and their enjoyment!

Thanks for everything you and the coaching staff have done for my daughter the last 4 years. You made the sport fun for her and she’s developed good fundamental skills over the years with the Bandits. She’s made friends along the way and enjoyed the experience. Great way to grow the sport. You’ve got a great program going here in the community.'
