2011 Hanover Blackhawks Select Teams
Congratulations to the 2011 HLC Tournament teams. Your coaches will be in touch with you with more information.
U11 – Head Coach: Tim Moore
U13 – Head Coach: Kathy Peck
Hanover Lacrosse Club will form select teams in multiple age brackets to compete in post-season summer tournaments. The club is committed to an open and fair tryout process that will be available to all 2011 players. The club follows US Lacrosse rules and strictly follows the age bracket guidelines for youth players. The HLC Blackhawk tournament teams are the only teams that Hanover Lacrosse Club organizes and oversees outside of the regular spring season. All players that want to tryout and coaches or parents that would like to apply to coach, should do so on the HLC website from April 8-April 24. There is no cost to tryout.
The select team is an opportunity for HLC players to play as a unit in regional tournaments.
Beginning in 2006, Hanover Lacrosse Club won the first Summer Slam U11 bracket. In 2009,
the U13 HLC won the Battle of Williamsburg division and played in the Championship
game of the Southern Classic in Charlottesville. The U11 Select played in the finals of the
Summer Slam tournament in Chesterfield which has grown to be one of the largest tournaments on the east coast and won the U11 Southern Classic. In 2010, the U13 team won Summer Slam and finished 2nd in the Battle of Williamsburg.
The goal of the Hanover Lacrosse Club Select teams is to provide a fun, competitive learning experience for our experienced players that allows them to improve their skills and become better lacrosse players.
The select teams are separate from the regular season teams. Each select team divides the costs of tournaments and expenses among the players. HLC, does not subsidize any of the select teams. The cost of the select teams includes tournament fee, additional county use fees, and ref fees. All coaches are unpaid volunteers. The cost of the select team will be about $100 due after the selections have been made. There will be no prorated fees for select players.
In preparation for the tournaments, the teams will schedule additional practices prior to the end of the regular season.
