What Are the Available Teams for High School?

National teams are Indy 2022, Indy 2023, and Indy 2024. Our regional team is United Midwest.

What are the differences between the national and midwest teams?

Our National teams are single class year teams developed to expose our athletes to national level competition, in settings where they are seen by college coaches from around the country. This team comes with a higher commitment of travel. Our Midwest team is composed of athletes from multiple graduation years which will also compete at quality tournaments closer to home.

What will travel look like in 2021?

We, along with other Midwest clubs and college coaches are working to create unique club opportunities for teaching, competitive play, and exposure to college coaches here in the Midwest region. In 2021, National teams will travel East at least once.

Do both teams receive recruiting benefits?

Yes! There is a place for every lacrosse athlete at a college in America, should your athlete choose to play beyond high school. National teams have access to our SportsRecruits platform and all athletes have access to our recruiting director and our relationships with collegiate coaches and programs.
