U19 Travel to National Championships

After a very successful summer, Team Total will travel to Tampa, Florida over the Christmas break to compete among the best travel teams in the country at Dick’s Sports National Tournament of Champions.

Team Total will compete in the Elite division which features top teams from around the country. “Most of these teams will have players who are going to play Division 1 lacrosse in a year,” said Dwayne Hicks, the head coach and director of Team Total. “We have several top players on our team as well. Some of the best players in the Detroit area play at Total and will be making the trip.”

This is the second trip to the national championships for Team Total. Two years ago they finished third, losing to the national champions in the semi’s and beating Northern Ontario/Six Nations in the consolation round.

According to Hicks, “this will be a great opportunity for Total players to compete against some of the best players in the country. It will help prepare them for the spring season. Plus, it’s not often a high school player gets a chance to compete for a national championship.“

The Dick’s National Tournament of Champions will start on Monday, December 29 and a national champion will be crowned on December 31.  Team Total players are practicing now in preparation for the trip.


Team Total Travel Lacrosse is based in Wixom, Michigan.  The travel teams for 2014 are Boys High School Boys U19, U18, U17, U15 and Girls High School Varsity.

The program is run by Dwayne Hicks, current Coach of Oakland University Women's Lacrosse and former Head Coach of Michigan State University Men's Lacrosse. 

The Team Total Travel Teams have some of the best lacrosse players in Southeastern Michigan who compete at a high level.  In December 2012 the Team Total boys varsity travel team earned a Bronze Medal at the Dick's National Tournament of Champions in Tampa, Florida.

Started in 2007, Team Total is a select travel team made up of some of the best players in the metro Detroit area. Our goal is to provide players with college level training and allow them to compete against other top players from around the country. While winning is important, the ultimate goal is to prepare our young men and women for challenges they will encounter off the field as much as on the field. For us, lacrosse is more than a game, it’s an experience.
