The North Carroll Boys Lacrosse Program is sponsored by NCRC, in cooperation with the Carroll County Department of Recreation. This is a true Recreational program for Boys & Girls who prefer full contact lacrosse, ages 5 to 14. 


To provide an opportunity for young athletes to experience and learn the great game of lacrosse by learning the fundamentals, working as a team, and good sportsmanship. 

Winning comes later…

Our philosophy is that when athletes love the game and learn how to work as a team – winning comes naturally. Our focus is on the athletes developing their skill, learning the rules of the game, and then coaching them on how to apply it, while playing as a team. 


Our program wants everyone to have the opportunity to play lacrosse and we understand the sport can be expensive. We now offer Rental Kits that include a helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads and gloves with Athletes needing to have their own stick. If you are interested in the rental program, please email


Our 3 older teams play in MYLA (Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association), the governing body for Maryland lacrosse. They divide players into the following leagues based upon their age as of September 1, 2023.

Leagues & Games

Pockets (ages 5 & 6) is our developmental program. Games & Practice are Sunday. We try to scrimmage with other Pockets teams, as well as scrimmage in-house.

Tyker (ages 7 & 8) Games are Saturdays with other Carroll County Tyker teams.

Lightning (ages 9 & 10) Games played in the *MYLA league with games occurring during the week and/or Saturdays.

Midgets (ages 11 & 12) Games played in the *MYLA league with games occurring during the week and/or Saturdays.

Juniors (ages 13 & 14) Games played in the *MYLA league with games on Sundays and weekdays based on MYLA's scheduling.

Practices & Games

Our Home Field is located at Cape Horn, with practices beginning Mid-March & our first MYLA game begins March 24, 2024.

Pockets Team Athletes MUST be 5 years of age by September 1, 2023.
Practice times will be set by the individual coach, but for this age group we like to limit it to one hour and would not start until after 5:30pm.  In-house games will always be at our Home Field, at Cape Horn. More information to come!

Tyker/Lighting/Midget/Junior Team Practices held on weeknights at various fields in the Hampstead/Manchester area. Practice times will be set by individual coaches and usually begin after 5:30pm, running for 1 to 2 hours.  All players will compete with their team in approximately ten games during the season.

This allows for development, along with a little competition. In some cases, there could be a playoff season which extends the normal season by approximately 2 weeks.
