FOBNL believes that athletics complement and enrich the academic experience and are integral to every student’s education and personal growth. We strive to build interscholastic lacrosse programs within our community to foster a love of sport and a life-long commitment to health and fitness. We view coaches as teachers and the fields as extensions of the classroom. We encourage our student athletes to participate and to strive for excellence.
Our focus is the growth and development of the boys and girls coop lacrosse programs that include District 87 and Unit 5 High Schools (Bloomington HS, Normal Community HS, and Normal Community West HS). Founded in 2020, the boys and girls lacrosse programs included over 120 athletes from the three participating high schools.
The Friends of Bloomington/Normal Lacrosse works tirelessly to raise the funds necessary to support the boys and girls co-op lacrosse programs in our community. FOBNL depends on fundraising activities and personal donations to support the lacrosse co-op teams.
As the high school co-op teams are not supported by Unit 5 or District 87 funds, without the generous support of our community, parents and friends-- IHSA sanctioned varsity lacrosse would not exist in our community for our high school athletes.
If you are interested in supporting our efforts, or would like to learn more, please visit our donation page where you can find more information on ways you can support high school lacrosse in our community.
