As the LAKE ZURICH HIGH SCHOOL season quickly approaches, Lake Zurich Lacrosse is offering two ways for players & parents to prepare for the upcoming season.
Through our partnership with Eastbay, LZLC has been able to create a TeamStores, where we can offer equipment and 2015 LZHS logo Lacrosse apparel at 20%-40% discounts. Items are shipped from Eastbay, directly to your home or office. In addition to the discount that members receive on their individual purchases, the club will receive 10% back that can be used on future team equipment purchases.
How does it work? Orders can only be placed online, through the Team Store sites. Follow the steps below.
2. Enter the below team code and shop! Team Code: OFMWLZL2
Due to the custom nature of the logo-wear items, orders will be delivered 3 weeks AFTER the store closes (store closes on February 17, 2015) and should arrive just in time for the start of games. Orders will be shipped directly to you.

Please let Janice Dickensen know if you'd like to tackle that responsibility at
A great game and a lot of FUN! See you all next August (1st week) in 2015~
Players from as far back as 2006 (Jeff Peterson) to 2017 (Nathan Bass & Ryan Beaupre) participated in our annual Alumni/Varsity Game. Thanks Coach Burke for making this happen (and both you and Coach Holden for playing like the boss that you know you are). And lastly, thanks to James Coleman for representing the reeeeealllly old crowd (the parents)!
Thanks Coaches Faris, Sutton and Vozas for coming out to hold the fort down.
As discussed in the team meeting during the Town Hall, LZHS Lacrosse will begin an off-season weight training and conditioning program. The program will start in November and run through the end of February. The off-season is a time that lacrosse athletes should be preparing their bodies for the rigors of the upcoming season. By providing athletes with sports appropriate strength and conditioning programs in the off-season, players and the program overall will become more competitive and effective, while reducing the risk for injury.
- Sessions begin this Tuesday, Nov. 5th and meet every Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (except for Thanksgiving week, Winter Break & Finals Week) 6:00 AM - 7:30 AM? in the LZHS Weight Room.
- Minimum of 2 days per week or 26 sessions over 13 weeks is suggested.
- Players participating in Fall or Winter sports should communicate that information to Coach Burke or Coach Sutton.
- Due to space limitations and time constraints Freshman are encouraged to participate in the program either as part of the morning sessions or on their own (Program can be found at http://leagueathletics.com/Page.asp?n=84027&org=lzlacrosse.com). If participating on their own, Freshman players should attend one session in November for baseline testing, and one in January and February for progress testing.
