The Lake Forest Lacrosse Association (LFLA) is a private, non-profit 510(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting and improving youth lacrosse in the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff area.
We offer Select Travel teams, camps/clinics and private instruction. We also serve as an information clearing-house to help parents understand the ever-changing lacrosse landscape in Chicago.
We lead with "what is best for our kids" not "how can we make money". Our focus is on providing a positive, organized and safe environment for our youth lacrosse players to grow and prosper. To that end, we strive to hire only the best coaches and provide the best facilities.

Lake Forest Lacrosse Association Mission
The Lake Forest Lacrosse Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the game of lacrosse and to enhance the skill set to children (boys and girls) in the community. LFLA is committed to developing the individual and the team skills necessary for play by teaching the rules of the game, developing self-esteem, teaching respect for fellow players, officials, and for the traditions of the game. We will strive to create an environment that is safe, organized and fun.
