Our 21st year…Serving South Charlotte Since 2001
Please note that due to the spring 2021 lacrosse schedule shift at the area public schools we will not be fielding a South Charlotte Cardinals team in 2021. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who attend a south Charlotte middle school will play on the same team this spring in the Carlotte Middle School Lacrosse League. The Cardinals will be back in the spring of 2022.
Open to middle school boys in the 6th, 7th, & 8th grades, the South Charlotte Cardinals will field at least two teams that will practice 3-4 days a week (see schedule below), then play games versus other area middle school teams from Charlotte and surrounding areas. The season starts on Monday, February 8, 202. After the first two weeks of practice, to ensure adequate playing time, we separate the boys into two teams (Cardinals 8/7 RED & Cardinals 7/6 WHITE).
The South Charlotte Cardinals have two paid professional coaches per team, and a full time goalie coach on staff.
NOTE ON 6th GRADERS
While the Cardinals middle school is open to all current sixth graders, regardless of experience. The Cardinals start two weeks earlier than our youth league – after the first two weeks, any 6th grade player who does not demonstrate the physical size/maturity and skill set required to play middle school lacrosse will be moved to our youth league to complete the spring season. No refunds or credits are issued for the cost difference in these programs.
