Team Info:

In the 2018 Spring Season, the 12U boys division will host two teams. The 12U teams will be divided into A & B Conferences. A for advanced players, B for intermediate and beginner players. Assessments will be made the first two weeks of the season. The goal in placement is to foster growth of every player by providing an environment with teammates and opponents of nearly equal skills.  Team placement will be based upon (in no particular order): athletic skills, lacrosse knowledge, stick work, level of commitment and attitude.

Weekly Practice Schedule: 5:00pm – 6:45pm, Tuesday and Thursday – Practice begins February 20, 2018 (Conditioning and Assessments first two weeks)

Practice Location: Fletcher Park (address: 85 Howard Gap Road, Fletcher, NC 28732)

12U-A and 12U-B schedules and rosters are listed below. Unlike other recreation sports programs in our area, our coaches are not volunteers, rather, they are skilled and certified lacrosse coaches using a curriculum designed by our well-qualified and experienced head coaches. Due to the nature of the sport and limited opportunities in our area, travel for all divisions/teams is required. Games are played in North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Fee Schedule (all fees include required membership to US Lacrosse): $299 per player (payment plans are offered) *

* We offer family discounts for two or more siblings.
