Join Bellaire Men's Lacrosse
"Life lessons, not just lacrosse lessons."
Get better as a person, a player and a teammate.
Join the team that plays with heart and hustle.
About The Team
Bellaire Men's Lacrosse is led by Head Coach Nick Ignatiev, a Bellaire High School alumnus. He took over the team for the 2018 season, going undefeated in District III and making it to the Championship Game while being voted Coach of the Year for DIII.
In 2022-2023, the team made it to the final four in the Texas High School Lacrosse League (THSLL) Super Regional state championships. And Coach Nick was named THSLL Class C South Coach of the Year.
Players attending Bellaire, Westbury, Sharpstown and Wisdom High Schools are eligible to participate (if not zoned to a closer school with a team). If attending HSPVA, Carnegie, DeBakey, Challenger or the Energy Institute but zoned to Bellaire, you also can play for us.
Why Play For Us?
Our team looks to teach life lessons, not just lacrosse. We teach our players to play with heart and hustle, work together, and stay disciplined to accomplish goals. Players will have an opportunity to earn Varsity letters and be a part of a team. No experience is necessary. Many players have never picked up a stick until starting high school.
The best part is being part of team, bonding with your teammates, and creating life-long memories as you work hard to improve physically and mentally. Our coaches work to help beginner players and develop more advanced players to succeed at the next level.
Who Do We Play?
As part of the THSLL, we play in the South District, Class C Division.
Our division includes Lamar, St. Thomas, Clear Springs, George Ranch, Houston Christian and Westside High Schools.
Coach Nick will schedule all South and North division opponents and usually includes tougher teams on our schedule from the Class B Division.
Practices & Games
Practices are three times per week in the Fall semester and move to five nights a week (Monday - Friday) beginning in January. Practice are held at St. Thomas Episcopal High School's Willowbend Field.
This year, our home games will be played at Bellaire High School's new field. The lacrosse season officially begins in mid January and all regular season games are played by mid April.
