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

Teams:

  • 2027
  • 2028-29

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.

Sarah Meek (Detriot Mercy), Sidney Klinger (Walsh) & Molly Grant (McKendree)

Kate Schmidt (Detriot Mercy), Caroline Curnutt (Hope) & Jenna Jenkins (Forstburg State)

Each team will have two coaches assigned to them.  All Indy Lacrosse Club coaches are members of US Lacrosse and have completed and passed a US 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.

Do We Allow Athletes To Play “Up?”

Our single class year teams are designed to help our athletes develop in more than the 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 2021

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.
