FEBRUARY 24, 2021: ALL FIELDS AT HUNTERSVILLE ATHLETIC PARK ARE OPEN.
The Carolina Miners expect that all coaches, players and spectators follow the guidelines set forth by Huntersville Parks and Rec as well as the State of North Carolina regarding the COVID-19 virus. At the time of this posting, it is required by the state that all coaches, players (even when playing) and families are required to wear face masks covering their mouth and nose at all times and socially distance (at least 6 feet) whenever possible. Spectators are not allowed on the fields and must still adhere to the mask and socially distancing guidelines anywhere in the park, including the parking lot. Coaches, players and families that are not willing to abide by these requirements may be asked to leave the fields. Failure to comply with these requirements may jeopardize the ability of the Carolina Miners to use the facilities provided by the Town of Huntersville.
Any changes set forth by Huntersville Parks and Rec and/or the State of North Carolina will be promptly communicated with the Carolina Miners community.
Over the last decade, participation in lacrosse has increased over 200%, making it the runaway fastest growing sport in America. And particularly in the Southeast, where there are opportunities to play year-round, that number of new players is even greater.
Carolina Miners’ Lacrosse combines the tradition of its Upstate New York roots with the enthusiasm and commitment to sports of the Carolinas. The nickname of ‘Miners’ is particularly appropriate to our culture, as hard work, perspective, and a ‘lunchpail’ mentality are central to our playing style.
More important than the product on the field, Miners Lacrosse is predicated on making better men and women out of the boys and girls wearing our jersey. Our coaching staff is comprised of collegiate and professional players with coaching experience at all levels, and all share the common thread of a commitment to education. Miners are student-athletes: in that order, non-negotiable.
