Ida B. Wells Men's Lacrosse Club

Club Info

Our goal is to provide a quality lacrosse program for high school age boys living in southwest Portland.

Ida B. Wells (Wilson) Men’s Lacrosse club is open to 9th – 12th grade boys living in the Wilson High School district of Southwest Portland. In Oregon, lacrosse is not an official sport of the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA). Therefore, our team is run as a non-profit club by parent volunteers, and we rely on fees and fundraising. IBW (Wilson) is a member of the Oregon High School Lacrosse Association (OHSLA), Columbia Division, which follows OSAA rules and guidelines, with very few exceptions.

Ida B. Wells (Wilson) Men’s Lacrosse is open to players of any level of experience. Many of the players have previous experience with Wilson Youth Lacrosse, but that is not required. If you do not have prior lacrosse experience, it helps to be generally athletic, have good hand-eye coordination, be in good condition and be ready to work hard in practices.

Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing sports in the U.S. It is a team sport of Native American origin. Lacrosse is played using a small solid rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse, with a head strung with loose mesh designed to catch and hold the ball. Lacrosse is a fast, physical, contact sport. Offensively, the objective of the game is to score by shooting the ball into an opponent's goal, using the lacrosse stick to catch, carry, and pass the ball to do so. Defensively, the objective is to keep the opposing team from scoring and to dispossess them of the ball through the use of stick checking and body contact or positioning.
