Hillcrest Lakers was incorporated in the early 1960’s as a non-profit sports organization serving boys and girls residing in the city of Yonkers.The club offers a year-round program including soccer, basketball, baseball & softball, flag football and lacrosse. The ages of children in Hillcrest programs range from five to eighteen.
The Hillcrest Lakers do not restrict registration to a geographical area, however, the majority of the Club's members generally reside in the North East section of Yonkers. There are currently over 750 families registered as members of the Club.
Depending on the sport, there are both recreational and travel divisions of play. Generally, the younger divisions of each sport play other Hillcrest teams in our "in-house" games. As the children progress through the program, the teams become more competitive playing against other local clubs in games and tournaments.
All of our programs are organized and supervised by volunteers, most of which are members of the Club with children active in the various programs. Each of our teams are generally coached by parent volunteers, with some outside assitance in certain programs.
Today the Hillcrest Lakers Board consists of 19 members, each of which is dedicated to offering the children of the community a heightened sense of self-esteem through recreational and competive sports. This is evident in their commitment of time, talent, guidance and friendship.
