Try Lacrosse Clinic

In partnership with the West Des Moines and Clive parks & rec departments the club held a basic skills clinic for beginning players on September 13 and 15.  Our coaches and high school players worked with 25 boys and girls in grades 3-8 to introduce the game to them.  A big thank you to all the coaches and players involved.



The high school girls team won the Midwest Girls Lacrosse League title on Saturday completing an undefeated season.  The Tigers defeated Duchesne in the quarters, Papillion in the semis, and then beat the Lincoln Liberty 18-15 in the hard-fought finale.  Congratulations players and coaches!  What a season!


First Alumni Game A Hit

The club’s first Alumni Game was a big success!  Current and past players squared off at Tiger Field for bragging rights, and the “young” guys prevailed in the waning seconds 10-9.  With some well-placed timeouts, the “old” guys made a good showing with friendly banter going back and forth.  Thanks to all that participated and that put on the event.  The club hopes to hold the game annually so please spread the word so we can get more alumni involved.   



WDM LAX Supports CanPlay Camp

Coaches and players from our club helped run a multi-night camp put on by the CanPlay organization which provides no-cost athletic and youth development opportunities for kids.  The camp was held June 13-16 at Linnan Park in Grimes, and was the first of its kind.  WDM Lax staff and players worked with 25 boys and girls from the metro on the basic skills of lacrosse.  USA Lacrosse also supported the event with an equipment grant given to CanPlay.  Thank you to all that participated and supported the worthy event.



Ice Breaker Tourney A Success

Sixteen teams from Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa representing 9 lacrosse clubs particpated in our annual girls invitational on Saturday, April 23 at the MidAmerican Energy RecPlex in West Des Moines.  Competition was held at the high school, middle school and youth age levels.  West Des Moines Lacrosse would like to thank all those that participated as well as the many volunteers who made the event happen.
