Summer Camps

We are certain the Lakeside Warrior Summer Camp experience will be a positive one for your family. We have assembled a quality group of Christian coaches and instructors to work with our campers. These camps allow for quality instruction and competition among fellow Christian athletes and provide a lot of fun at a reasonable cost. We offer a STEM camp and sports camps to students in 5-8th grade
 Te learn more about our "Science-Technology-Engineering-Math" camp, visit Summer STEM Camp Link. Also see info on the STEM Club page.


We want Warrior Camp to be a fun experience at Lakeside. Basketball players are made during the off-season. During this 5-day camp, players are taught game fundamentals needed to become better players, with special emphasis placed on the team concept. Daily instruction involves drills, contests and games.

Youth Tackle Football

This program gives our area grade school athletes a possible three or four years of tackle football experience prior to high school. It exists to teach players the basic skills of tackle football, teamwork and good sportsmanship, under the guidance of Christian coaches.

All boys, who will be entering 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th grade in the fall of 2018, and are members of our area Lutheran congregations, are eligible to play. This program gives these athletes the opportunity to experience football with fellow Christians.
Divisions and Conference play
Assuming numbers are sufficient, we field separate 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams. We are members of the Dane and Jefferson County Youth Football League and compete against teams from Jefferson, Lake Mills, Deerfield, Cambridge, Waterloo, Marshall, Columbus, Whitewater and McFarland.

Practices begin Monday August 6, from 5:30–7:30 p.m. and run every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday leading up to the first game on Saturday, August 25. Thereafter, practices are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5–7 p.m. Games are usually on Saturdays. The season includes 7 games, with the last game scheduled for October 13, 2018. A definitive game and practice schedule is set by the time we mail out forms to registered players in spring.

Participants are required to have an up-to-date physical (within the last two years). Each player is equipped with quality equipment from Riddell. Prospective coaches receive instruction from Lakeside football staff. Sleds, dummies and other appropriate equipment are provided by Lakeside. The Lakeside Lutheran High School athletic trainer is present at all games.

Registration fees
Registration is $115.00 per player for those registered online by April 1, 2018. The fee includes a free t-shirt for the players. A $140 late registration fee per player may be submitted after this cutoff date. Register here for Youth Football from August - October 2018
Please register as early as possible, or e-mail Paul Bauer at to let us know of your plans to register or your decision status. We are always anxious to see 20-plus boys signed up for each of the three levels in order to plan. In recent years we have had to open the 6th grade program up to 5th graders in order to field a team. We prefer not to, but if it’s again necessary, we would like to know as far in advance as possible. 

Please also keep in mind there are opportunities for parent involvement on game days, such as being a part of the chain gang. We ask that you consider helping out so that home games can run as smoothly as possible.

After you register, we mail out four forms, including a physical form. They all need to be complete and submitted before equipment is issued.

This summer softball program helps girls become better players in fast-pitch softball and offers a smooth transition to high school softball. Girls are taught high school rules and learn to hit, bunt, steal bases, slide, play defense, and score runs at a high school level. Besides being fun, it is intended to encourage girls to continue to play softball in high school.
Games are scheduled against same age teams from surrounding communities and schools. Over 1,500 girls from area communities participated last year. Games begin in late May and conclude with a spectacular year-end Junior Olympic tournament for all age groups in July. Each player also receives an end-of-summer tournament t-shirt!
Players in live pitch will need their own bat, helmet with face guard, glove and pants. Jerseys are provided. Bag and cleats are recommended. Metal cleats are for the U14 division and older. Each team will have catcher’s gear.
