BALTIMORE – US Lacrosse, the national governing body of men’s, women’s and youth lacrosse, has announced the hire of Ginger Miles as its pacific regional manager. Miles, who has served the organization as a volunteer on the board of directors since 2010, begins her official duties on August 1.
A former goalie who led the University of Virginia to consecutive ACC championships in 2005 and 2006, Miles brings an extensive lacrosse resume into her new position. She comes to US Lacrosse after serving the past three seasons as the head coach at Cal Berkeley.
Prior to taking the reins at Cal, Miles spent two seasons as head coach at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, where she guided the NCAA Division III program to a pair of conference titles and two second round appearances in the NCAA Tournament. She has also coached at Western Albermarle High School, the Blue Ridge Lacrosse Club, and as a volunteer assistant at her alma mater, Virginia.
In addition to her role on the board at US Lacrosse, Miles has also served the organization as a member of its Diversity and Inclusion Task Force since 2012. Her primary responsibilities in her new position will include the oversight of nine Pacific Region chapters.
“We’re very excited that Ginger will be joining our staff as a full-time member,” said Lindsay Comodore, senior manager for western regional development at US Lacrosse. “Ginger’s passion for lacrosse and her knowledge of the game were among the many reasons she was hired for this position.”
With over 420,000 members from coast-to-coast, US Lacrosse’s network of 68 chapters serve as extensions of the national office, helping to foster the responsible growth of the sport by delivering programs and services to local constituents.
A native of Hyattsville, Md., Miles served as captain of her team at Eleanor Roosevelt High School prior to attending the University of Virginia. Upon graduating in 2006 as a government major, she worked as an admissions counselor in UVA’s Outreach Office for Undergraduate Admissions before entering the coaching profession.
Miles will be based in the San Francisco area.
