Hilltopper 2018 Fall Tryouts

By Carolina Hilltoppers [Sponsored] 08/03/2018

The Carolina Hilltopper Lacrosse Program will hold their fall tryouts on September 9 th at North Carolina Central University. This season the Hilltoppers will field teams for players in the high school graduating classes of 2019 through 2027. The fall season consists of five practices on turf fields and two regional tournaments in Greensboro, North Carolina on October 21st/22nd and in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 27th/28th. Players who try out in the 2020 and 2019 classes, will not only try out for their age based team but also have the opportunity to be selected for a combined team will compete in one national recruiting event in November. Tryouts are completely free, which is intentionally done to allow all prospective players an equal opportunity to make the team. With this year's tournaments being close to home and practices being held on the weekends, the fall season is designed to give local athletes the ability to participate in other fall sports.

Forming in 2011, the Carolina Hilltoppers started with only a high school A and B team. Now, almost eight years later, they have grown to become the Triangle's longest-lasting club lacrosse organization with teams for players from high school to elementary school and ranging across multiple skill levels. In their tenure, they have seen 75+ of our former players go on to compete on NCAA D1, D2, and D3 lacrosse teams. Furthermore, countless members of Hilltopper teams have made their high school All-Conference teams, and they’ve had multiple All-Region, All-State, All- American, and Academic All-American players as well! The Hiltoppers take great pride in the success of their young men and frequently see their alumni come back to pass on what they have learned from the college game to their current players. The Hilltopper coaching staff is made up of experienced local coaches, many of whom have enjoyed great success in both players and coaches at the collegiate and high school level. All of their dedicated coaches and administrators put an emphasis on player development and making sure the game is fun.
