Girls: May 22nd Boys: May 22nd


In 2015, Team NorCal alums played on the NCAA Lacrosse Champion teams Denver (D1) Limestone (D2), Tufts (D3) and Onondaga (JuCo).  In 2019, 19 of our alumni participated in teams playing in the MCLA College Lacrosse National Championship Tournament (March Madness but for Lacrosse  and held in May).  In 2022, this year, we have over 60 young men playing in college at D1, D2, D3, and MCLA Lacrosse programs at over 40 different colleges.  

Team NorCal is the oldest elite lacrosse development program in the San Francisco Bay Area -  Now in our 13th year, over 400 boys and girls at Youth. Middle School and High School levels will represent Northern California in local, regional and national lacrosse tournaments in 2022. Teams representing grad years 2023-2030.  

Over 50% of Northern California US Lacrosse-named HS All Americans in 2013 though 2021 came from the Team NorCal program - A strong track record of developing talent. Team NorCal alumni played on the D1, D2, D3 and JuCo NCAA  Championship teams in 2015 and 2016!       

A year-round travel and development program - Unlike most travel teams, we practice twice a month all year long. Teams and players improve only through consistent practice, not through rushed 'training camps' a couple of times per year.  

Experienced Coaches - We only hire experienced high school and college coaches who look out for the entire team.  No parent influence in roster or playing decisions.  

Sustained Performance -The success of our program speaks for itself.  We won 15 championships in 2018 alone. Our  Boy's HS Elite team was 66-25 over the last three years playing in many competitive regional and national tournaments, and our Select team has won 5 tournaments over the last year alone.  Our new Girls program has won 6 tournaments since its inception across the various age groupings.    

More than Just Travel Ball - We have summer camps, year-round clinics, Fall Ball leagues, and SummerBall to help you play and improve your skills.  

Family Friendly- Our tournaments and events are very family friendly, giving players and families a chance to enjoy the weekends and make new friends.  Our Hospitality Tents have a well deserved national reputation.
