INDY YOUTH 2028-2030

The BAsics

Graduation Years:  2028, 2029, 2030

Description
Each Indy United team will be placed in an appropriate tournament division based upon the coaches’ assessment of team competitiveness.

Teams:

  • 2028
  • 2029-2030

There may be a few players that will be moved up an age level, at a max of one year.   We use the above age ranges to align better with grade levels for athletes. This is different than IYLA who uses 15U, 13U & 11U.

Coaches: TBA

Youth Director: Laura Rogers 

Each team will have two coaches assigned to them.  All Indy Lacrosse Club coaches are members of USA Lacrosse and have completed and passed a USA Lacrosse national background check. Coaches are selected and assigned based upon their experience level and expertise in coaching lacrosse fundamentals and game concepts.  We choose coaches who will foster positive relationships within the team and encourage players to want to improve, all while learning the fundamentals of progressive competitive play.

What Are the Available Teams for Youth?

Indy 2027, Indy 2028, Indy 2029-2030

Do We Allow Athletes To Play “Up?”

Our single class year teams are designed to help our athletes develop in more than one way of getting better at lacrosse. We feel strongly that athletes at the youth level have a lot to gain from playing with their age group, including but not limited to: skill development, leadership development, peer relationships, and most importantly, these teams who play together through the years will be very strong!

What will travel look like in 2023

We will play in tournaments within the Midwest and here at Grand Park. We, along with other Midwest clubs and college coaches are working to create different club opportunities for teaching and competitive play, closer to home.

What If Our Athlete Plays Other Sports In The Summer, Can She Play Still?

Yes! We fully support multi-sport athletes! We will work with athletes who have specific conflicts. We do ask for a primary commitment to practices and tournaments for coaches to offer consistent skills teaching and playing consistency in tournaments.
