GENERAL CLUB INFO:
We encourage ANY level player to become a Hotlanta Club Member. It is not necessary for members to be an Elite player to participate. We have teams comprised of all skill levels, so we will find the appropriate team for all participants.
The Hotlanta Select Division Teams will be made up of the best skilled and experienced players who attend the tryouts. We typically have one Select team for each graduation year. Players will be notified after tryouts whether they were chosen for our Select team. If they are not chosen for the Select team, they will be placed on a Rise team roster. There will be 18-20 players selected per team, plus 3 alternates for each team. The alternates will be first to take the spot of a Select player, if for any reason she cannot commit to the team.
The tournaments players attend will vary based on which team they play for. The Select Division teams will be traveling to the furthest, most competitive tournaments. There is an additional expense for the Select teams compared to the Rise teams because the increased cost of events not hosted in the Southeast.
The Hotlanta Rise Teams will be comprised of players from various scenarios: 1) Players who attended the tryouts but were not chosen for one of the Select Division Teams; 2) Players who do not wish to play on a Select Division team but want to work on developing their game and attending only local tournaments; or 3) Players that missed tryouts for whatever reason and/or joined the team late and there were no openings on the Select team. Rise teams are typically not grad year specific, but instead a mix of grad year players. We will have as many Rise Division teams as necessary to give all interested players a chance to play club lacrosse.
We are dedicated to educating and counseling both the parents and club members on the recruiting process. To do so, we provide one-on-one meetings with our Hotlanta Recruiting assistants. Our staff will assist the players in developing a recruiting plan and teach various strategies to increase their exposure to college coaches. (ie. Player resume, letters to coaches, preparing for recruiting tournaments, etc.) Each season the players will be contacted by our staff regarding their recruiting meetings. Players and parents are invited to these meetings.
In addition, Hotlanta will also host informational meetings for the parents and players to explain the recruiting process, the NCAA rules, and how our club maximizes exposure for our players. We will also provide literature and any articles that are helpful in the recruiting process.

The practice only players will have specific instruction for their group and sometimes be incorporated into our regular club practices and clinics. Cost is $300 for Elementary School players (grad year 2026 and under), $400 for MS players (grad year 2023-2025) and $500 for HS Players (grad year 2022-2019). Practice Only players are NOT required to attend tryouts.

All practices will be at Kell High School in Marietta on Tues & Thursday from 4pm-8pm (all teams will practice either 4-6pm or 6pm-8pm).
Practices will be held twice a week for each team, for a 2 hour time period. Practice times are somewhere between 4pm and 8pm (4-6pm session or 6-8pm session).
For those families who have 2 or more siblings who are Hotlanta Club Members, we offer a $300 discount from the registration fee for each additional sibling, after the first player pays the full registration. (ie. Suzy and Sally are sisters, Suzy pays full price for Club, Sally gets $300 off her fee). This is regardless of what team the sibling plays on.* (Sibling discount does not apply to practice only players).
The fee for the Club Program includes the cost of all practice sessions, all summer tournament fees, player apparel, and all related expenses, such as field rental fees, coaches stipends, etc. Each player will also benefit from online player evaluations after each tournament, as well as one-on-one recruiting assistance. Players are responsible for their own travel expenses (transportation and hotel).
One of the largest factors that sets Hotlanta apart from other local clubs is our OUTSTANDING coaching staff! We are very fortunate to have so many talented and experienced coaches who possess a passion for the game and the desire and ability to take our players to the next level.
