    Welcome to the home of LARA

    The Lakes Area Recreation Association (LARA) provides the opportunity for school-age Chisago Lakes-Area children to experience affordable, supervised sports activities. LARA is a volunteer, nonprofit organization and is not formally affiliated with the Chisago Lakes School District, but cooperates with and encourages participation by the District. More than 2,000 lakes-area youth participate in LARA sports every year.

    Lara is a non-profit organization. All proceeds, including fees, donations and fund raising dollars are put into the program. Expenses include equipment, umpires, ref's, field maintenance, new field construction and insurance.
