Team NorCal is the oldest, largest and most successful elite and lacrosse development program in the San Francisco Bay Area. 2016 will be our 9th year, and we have grown from a single team, to this year sponsoring 14 teams across Youth, Middle School, and High School Boys and Girls Divisions, which represent Northern California in local, regional and national lacrosse tournaments year round such as the Vail Shootout, the Maryland Summer Sizzle and Sandstorm, where we have won 14 Championships over the last 3 years. Over half of the US Lacrosse named HS All Americans and Academic All Americans in 2013 through 2015 in Northern California are Team NorCal alumni. Our players are now among the most highly sought after high school lacrosse players in California, and many now play for some of the best D1, D2, D3, and MCLA college programs around the country. In fact, in 2015, Team NorCal alums played on the NCAA Lacrosse Championship teams Denver (D1) Limestone (D2), Tufts (D3) and Onondaga (JuCo).
Team NorCal selects teams based on competitive tryouts each year. We attract talented and dedicated lacrosse players throughout the Bay Area - from San Francisco to Monterey, and from Sacramento to Napa - to represent Northern California against the best all around the country. Our coaches are among the most accomplished college, high school, club, and youth coaches in California. We have a philosophy that is unique in youth sports. We do not allow parents to coach or manage any of our teams.
Team NorCal is a year round development program which focuses on skill building, team development, and also sends its teams to some of the most competitive regional and national lacrosse tournaments in many of America's lacrosse hotbeds. We help our players learn to excel in lacrosse and just as importantly, in life.
We practice on the best lacrosse field in the state of California at Palo Alto High School. We have done this for many years, and the success of our program speaks for itself. We had a 34-9-1 record against other Bay Area Travel teams for 2013, and in 2014, won 70% of our games across the entire program. We are the only travel team in Northern California with this broad a selection of teams and tournaments . Players who join Team NorCal in the youth divisions can continue through their High School years and play with the best in the area year round.
