Hillcrest's travel lacrosse teams participate in the Hudson Valley Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse. The philosophy of the Hudson Valley Chapter is to promote the game of lacrosse for all players without an overemphasis on winning and losing. There are no playoffs and no standings- each game is just that, a game.
For the 2023 season, we will open up registration for all teams on a waitlist basis. Teams for both boys and girls will be based on the current school grade of the player:
Note that if we do not have sufficient enrollment for the age groups, we will not be able to field a team. PLEASE REGISTER ASAP TO ASSIST US WITH PLANNING FOR THE PROGRAM.
For the 2023 Hillcrest Spring Lacrosse season, teams will play in approximately two tournaments and six games. We anticipate practices will be on Friday evenings and Saturdays, with games and tournament dates to be determined, but we will confirm this when we secure the fields. We are likely using TIBBETTS as our home field. New jerseys will be provided to each player (cost included in registration fee). We look forward to a fun season!
2023 - COVID UPDATE – Due to Covid, Hillcrest will not be able to supply protective equipment for the players.
