Boys' Lacrosse

Boys' Lacrosse

The Hill School boys' lacrosse program seeks to provide student-athletes with support in every facet of the sport of lacrosse. Developing young talent at the junior varsity level through helping assist impact varsity players with the college recruiting process are all part of the Hill lacrosse experience. Virtually all of our varsity lacrosse players find themselves on another varsity team during the fall and winter, proving the multi-sport athlete is alive and well at The Hill School.
Admission to The Hill School:

Please go to our admission page to see where the admission office will travel throughout the fall, learn about affordabilityschedule an interview, and view our five- year college matriculation list.


Our location allows Hill Lacrosse players ample opportunity to attend fall recruiting events in the mid-Atlantic region with their club programs or individual showcases. Players have access to equipment including nets, plenty of wall space and lacrosse balls to hone basic skills independently. Also, voluntary fall and winter workouts occur twice weekly on Harry L. Price Field or our indoor facility, David H. Mercer Field House, which allows for half field practices or box lacrosse practice. Players return from spring break a few days early for pre-season practices.


With the construction of Harry L. Price Field, The Lehrman ’56 Pavilion, and Briggs S. Cunningham ’26 ’50 Field, Hill has become a destination for major events in the summer and fall for recruiting and training in the mid-Atlantic region. Hill has played host to 3D Lacrosse National Training Camp, Bill Pilat’s The Goalie School, Big 4 Fall Champions League, Legacy Lacrosse, and The Match. Combined, these events have drawn thousands of families to The Hill School.

College Recruitment Process:

The ever evolving landscape of the recruitment process requires close guidance. Those interested in playing at the collegiate level will receive support directly from the coaching staff. Open and honest dialogue throughout the recruiting process is paramount and we push our student-athletes to find the right fit above all else.

Spring Season:
While in season, each and every minute is carefully planned to maximize the talent, character and the focus of our players. Each practice is carefully planned in order to improve basic skills, time honored and cutting edge drills that help break down each aspect of the sport of lacrosse. Access to our weight room and our team film room allow us to prepare off the field as well.  Hill is part of the Mid-Atantic Prep League which includes Lawrenceville School, Hun School, Mercersburg Academy, Blair Academy and Peddie School.
