Women's Coaches Information

The US Lacrosse Women's Game Committee and Coaches Subcommittee represent active women's lacrosse coaches in the United States. The committees represent coaches at all levels of the game.

Among their varied duties, these committees are responsible for the policies, procedures and guidelines for girls competing at the high school level. The Women's Game Committee and Coaches Subcommittee are both comprised of regional representatives from across the nation.

The US Lacrosse committee representatives work closely with the IWLCA (Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association), and the NFHS (National Federation of State High School Associations) to represent coaching interests at all levels of the game.

High School Coaches Recognition Program

In 2008, US Lacrosse approved a measure to start a Coaches Recognition Program to recognize high school coaches of girls’ lacrosse who have achieved significant levels of varsity wins in their coaching careers and/or coaches who have reached established milestones in years of service as a varsity head coach.

The "Century Club" recognizes coaches who have reached 100 win milestones in their careers. The "Legends Club" recognizes coaches who have been a varsity level coach for 20 or more years.

Both lists of coaches are published in the program for the annual US Lacrosse National Convention, and displayed on this web site. All high school coaches who are recognized must be current members of US Lacrosse.

The type of recognition given to award levels are as follows:

Century Club
100 and 200 Wins – Certificate
300 and 400 Wins – Plaque
500+ Wins – TBD

Legends Club
20 Years – Certificate
25+ Years – Plaque
