Ida B. Wells Men's Lacrosse Club

Practices & Matches


Optional pre-season conditioning generally happens from December to mid-February and is run by team captains. 

Look for conditioning and skills camps!

Also, conditioning can be scheduled and run by the coaches or players. Conditioning is typically held 3-4 days a week after school, and may consist of speed, agility and weight training. 

Players may also organize stick-work drills and light scrimmaging (coaches may not organize or participate in these ‘sport-specific’ activities). All players are strongly encouraged to attend as many optional conditioning sessions as they can. Players are required to show up for the first official practice in shape!

Official practices usually begin in late February and are run by the coaches. We typically are allowed only 10-12 official practices before our first match is scheduled. Our practices are purposely designed to be fast-paced, emulating game-type situations and pressure. The first few practices are used by the coaches to determine the Varsity and JV squads and the rest are to prepare for games.


Competition usually begins in mid-March. Ida B. Wells High School competes in the OHSLA’s Columbia Division, against other teams from the Portland area, and also plays non-division matches against Portland area and northern Willamette Valley teams. Matches may be held once or twice per week, typically on Tuesday and/or Thursday afternoons but be aware the schedule will vary during the season.

Lacrosse is a club sport and a "show up on site" activity. It means players are responsible for finding their own transportation to and from most away matches. For longer distances (i.e. Hood River, Eugene, etc.) we may charter a bus. In this case, all players are required to ride the bus to/from the game. We play about 15-16 regular season matches, with the possibility of additional playoff matches.
