LiL’ Ballers Lacrosse (LBL) was founded by Peter Murphy with a very basic mission in mind: to introduce lacrosse to more of Chicago’s youth, show them the correct way to play the game, and bring some fun back to youth sports. LBL will help players of varying skill levels develop a love for lacrosse while instilling the fundamentals needed to be a  successful player. We want our players to learn to think for themselves, knowing the "why" is often as important as the "how" win terms of development. We stress both concepts and fundamentals, then play weekly games. LBL's core offerings are 3-on-3 lacrosse leagues and camps that will be open to boys and girls across all skill levels.  

At the heart of the LBL model is the belief that youth sports should be about 1) fun; 2) health; 3) socialization; 4) development; and 5) competition. League and camps are open to both experienced players and those that are new to the sport. The 3-on-3 structure incorporated by LBL is a great vehicle to teach lacrosse because it focuses on stick skills, reps, and key 2-player and 3-player concepts/games that are prevalent within lacrosse offenses at all levels. Importantly, our 3-on-3 league aims to put some of the fun back in youth sports, without compromising the level of instruction. Each season, players in the LBL program will receive high-level coaching at practice and then have the opportunity to showcase their moves during games. Less Pressure. Less Stress. More Action. More Fun. Great Lacrosse Education! Come Join the action at LiL' Ballers Lacrosse!

Why play 3-on-3 vs. full-field lacrosse?

Why 3-on-3? Players will develop their stick skills by getting more touches playing in groups of three on a shortened field. Our LiL' Ballers' fundamentals will improve over the season, as will their Lacrosse IQ. Our players will leave with a firm understanding of the triangle concepts, motion, and balance that are prevalent throughout lacrosse offenses nationwide and at the heart of LBL's 3-on-3 league. More reps, knowledge, scoring, and fun. 3-on-3 Lax, LBL style.


LBL will host Free Lacrosse Clinics throughout the year to introduce the game too more kids in the Chicago area.

If your child, school, or team is interested in a Free Lacrosse Clinic, please email Coach Murphy.
