The Chicago Outlaws are a senior semi-professional box lacrosse team in the Box Lacrosse League. The Outlaws presently play at the Salt Creek Sports Center in Palatine, Illinois.

History[edit]

Formed in 2011, the Chicago Outlaws are one of four original members[1] of the Box Lacrosse League, (originally named Midwest Lacrosse Alliance and later Midwest Indoor Lacrosse Association and Continental Indoor Lacrosse League), a men's senior box lacrosse league in the United States.

Chicago finished runner-up in two of their first three seasons, falling short in the 2011 and 2013 league championship game.

In 2014, the Outlaws finished an 8-1 regular season[2] and went on to win their first CILL Cup.

One notable player for the Outlaws was Zack Dorn, who set the world record[3] for fastest shot (116 mph) at the 2014 Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game.
