Required Equipment for 12U: Helmet (sport-specific) in Solid White or Solid Grey, Standard Lacrosse Stick measuring 40-42 inches for attackmen and midfielders and 52-72 inches for defensemen, Arm Pads (or Arm Guards), Gloves, Shoulder Pads, Mouth Guard and Athletic Cup
In the 2018 Spring Season, we will offer programs in the Varsity/JV, 14U, 12U and 10U/8U divisions. At the 12U boys division, 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.
12U teams will practice from 5:00pm – 6:45pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Fletcher Park (address: 85 Howard Gap Road, Fletcher, NC 28732)
HOME games will be played at Fletcher Park on Saturdays (see separate A and B schedules below). 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):
12U: $299 per player (payment plans are offered) *
* We offer family discounts for two or more siblings.
Unlike other rec 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.
