Blackhawks Lacrosse (formerly Crystal Lake Youth Lacrosse AKA the Crystal Lake Hawks) is proud to announce its 1st season of spring lacrosse under its new name, logo, and lacrosse philosophy!  We will participate in the IBLA (Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association) and the IGLL (Illinois Girls Lax League) this year.

Girls GRADE Requirements and Divisions 

The Girl Lacrosse league will be using a grade-based system. 





To comply with league rules, the Blackhawks will have Black and Red divisions at grade levels where we have multiple teams participating.    

Developmental Program

For Players in Kindergarten-2nd grade, we are planning to have a Developmental team which will be instructional and Practice Only.  This is designed to provide basic and fundamental lacrosse skills for young players to give them a jump start in the sport.  If you are interested in the Developmental Program, please click HERE to complete the registration or visit the Blackhawks Lacrosse website at www.Blackhawkslax.net.

The indoor sessions are scheduled for late February & March so there is less interference for players participating in winter sports.
