In 2002, the StickWithUs Organization fielded the first ever travel team in North Carolina when the Charlotte Copperheads traveled to Annapolis, MD to play in the Father’s Day Invitational. The Copperheads were a mixture of 4th, 5th & 6th graders who competed in a very competitive U-13 bracket, going 0-5 that weekend, but returning to Charlotte with a renewed sense of confidence and determination to compete at the highest level. Several of the “original Copperheads” went on to play college lacrosse. The next summer, Team Charlotte U-17 (wearing purple and gold) formed to compete in the first ever Greensboro Lax Fest attended by three high school teams. For the next 20+ years, the StickWithUs Organization and the Carolina Lacrosse Association would build the most nationally recognized club program in the region under the Team Carolina, Team Charlotte, Carolina Colts, and the South Charlotte Cyclones brands. Starting in 2016, all teams would now be branded under the Team Carolina logo. With no signs of slowing down as the regional leader, from top to bottom, our success versus National competition, and placing our players on college rosters, is unequaled by any regional program – Who’s In Charge of Your Game?
