Stars Lacrosse is considered one of the premier middle school clubs in the country offering year-round lacrosse training and tournament competition for girls in 3rd - 8th grades. Stars consistently places among the best teams in the country, including placing second three years in a row at the US Lacrosse U15 National Championships.
Stars Lacrosse aims to provide a positive atmosphere devoted to developing accomplished players by building strong stick skills, strong fundamentals and developing a well-rounded athlete. We put a high priority on athleticism and coachability in our girls. Our coaches have all played college lacrosse at top programs and have the ability to develop the skills of your daughter at a compelling rate. Our goal is to develop an elite player who can have tremendous success at the highest level of play. We want our players to not only be great athletes but great teammates.
We strive to develop great goalies. The program is always looking for athletes interested in playing the position of goalie. The Stars program provides dedicated coaching for girls interested in learning the position.
Stars players also benefit from the leadership of Kathy Jenkins, head lacrosse coach at St. Stephens St. Agnes, which is one of the top women's high school lacrosse programs in the country. Kathy is the winningest coach in girls high school lacrosse in the country and a national leader in girls lacrosse for more than 40 years. She is involved at all levels of the club and is focused on building great stick skills and fundamentals. Kathy is able to provide a level of expertise that is invaluable for our middle school players.
The Stars Lacrosse Club is one of the most competitive in the country. In order for the club to be successful, participants are expected to make all practices and tournaments and any other club participation will need to be a secondary priority to Stars Lacrosse.
Stars Lacrosse offers 21-26 practices and 7-8 tournaments per year. Teams might also have opportunities for additional practices and tournaments added to the schedule by coaches of the specific teams.
At least one or two of the practices will be clinics run by college coaches and players. In the past, we have had UVA, JMU, The Naval Academy, Georgetown, and Richmond. Weather permitting, we guarantee at minimum 4 tournaments in the fall and 3 tournaments in June/July.
Please plan on attending all tournaments listed for the fall and on playing in 3-4 tournaments in the summer. Your commitment will need to be until the end of June especially the 8th grade group which usually does a few extra tournaments completing by the middle of July.
Being one of the most competitive clubs in the country, Stars Lacrosse expects our young athletes to maintain a high level of performance. Coaches expect the girls to be in great physical condition and able to outrun our competition. This is especially true for the older teams.
