Who We Are....
Hanover County Lacrosse Club (HLC) is a non-profit organization developed to promote the growth of the sport of lacrosse in Hanover County, Virginia.
Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for your child to learn the game of lacrosse. At the core of our programs, we will teach appropriate skills and rules while stressing a positive atmosphere among the athletes to create a culture where kids love to play the game.
HLC is governed by a board of directors and most coaches are volunteers. The success and growth of our programs depend heavily on the strong spirit of all our volunteers and their love for the game.
How We've Grown...
The Hanover County Lacrosse Club was founded in 2001. In the first season, the club helped to organize two middle school teams for boys. Boys from Oak Knoll, Stonewall Jackson and Chickahominy were pooled to form one team and there was enough interest from Liberty Middle school to form a second team.
Since the 2001 season, the Hanover County Lacrosse Club has added many teams for boys and girls at all levels. In the 2006 season, we launched the Blackhawk lacrosse program for youth boys and in 2008 the Ladyhawk lacrosse program for girls was created. As our numbers increase, we continue to grow our programs to meet the needs of our youth.
Where We're Headed...
As HLC continues to grow, we have expanded to provide youth lacrosse to all four seasons of the calendar, both a Winter and Fall Girls High School 7v7 League, and a Lil Laxhawks Program for Pre-K and K boys and girls to learn the game using mini lacrosse sticks and softer low impact lacrosse balls. Our footprint has grown to include players from surrounding areas outside Hanover, including Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Stafford, and Frederickburg.
Moving forward, HLC will continue to support the growth and preservation of the lacrosse community in Central Virginia, through regional tournaments and playdays both with local clubs and neighboring areas such as Hampton Roads; engagement in educating schools, parents and players about the game of lacrosse through teaching the game in PE classes, hosting new player clinics, and developing parents and former players into coaches; and continuing to give back to Blackhawk players through our annual High School Senior Scholarship. HLC continues to prepare for a bright future ahead for the program and the sport of lacrosse.
