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.We draw players mostly from the Mechanicsville-Atlee area neighborhoods. Our high school players attend Atlee, Hanover and Lee-Davis high schools and our youth players attend many of Hanover County's elementary schools.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. The parents who helped organize the Liberty team later formed their own club, the Ashland Lacrosse Club.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.
