Our 20th year…Serving South Charlotte Since 2001
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 Sunday, February 9 through Saturday, May 2, 2020. 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
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 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.
