Liberty Lacrosse is an elite lacrosse program designed for girls of all ages. Liberty Lacrosse provides a family environment where each and every player truly matters. We take an interest in all of our athletes and truly want them to achieve their best. Our Liberty coaches are current and former collegiate players that want to help better the next generation of LibLaxers. Liberty Lacrosse offers a lacrosse education that promotes individual development en route to learning how to become part of something bigger: one team!

Players have the opportunity to compete in high level tournaments with exposure to top collegiate coaches. Liberty Lacrosse players move on to play at top D1, D2, and D3 programs in the country every year and continuously play vital roles in these programs. In order for our players to achieve their goal of playing collegiately, we offer a forum each year to help parents and players better navigate the recruiting process. The forum includes a panel of college coaches so that members of our Liberty family can gain valuable first hand knowledge about what college coaches are looking for.

LIBERTY LACROSSE takes it to the NEXT LEVEL.

Below is a sample of the Liberty Lacrosse experience!

Recruiting Services: Liberty Lacrosse Recruiting Services are directed by Danielle Gallagher (Liberty Lacrosse Director and former coach at University of Notre Dame and Colorado College.) We support and guide our players and their families through the entire recruiting process. In order to do this, we offer many opportunities for our families to become educated about the process and gain the essential tools needed to navigate their custom path. As a well respected girls travel lacrosse club, we are able to make our players goals become a reality as we work alongside them through their individual  journey.

  • Recruiting Night:  Liberty Lacrosse holds a recruiting evening where we invite D1 – D3 Coaches openly discuss the recruiting process as well as supply insight into the life of a student athlete. We supply a custom, updated Liberty Lacrosse Recruiting Manual that has important step by step guidelines, links and access to many of the tools needed in the recruiting process. Past coaches that have attended: Harvard, U Penn, Trinity, Molloy, Dartmouth, Lafayette, Hamilton, Monmouth, Princeton, Yale.
  • Recruiting Calls: Liberty Lacrosse holds informative team recruiting calls several times throughout the year which also includes information to questions that are submitted before hand by players and parents and open Q & A time for additional questions at the end of each call. This is another great support service to make sure that players are on schedule within the process.
  • College Bus Tour:. We had 2 extremely successful College Bus Tours this year(2016/17) to visit an array of D1-D3 colleges. This is a great opportunity to visit an array of schools on both a large and small campus; and both city and rural campus. Players have the opportunity of gaining a true understanding of college life as a student athlete through their interactions with coaches and players at the colleges.

Student Prep/ Lacrosse Prep:
Liberty is proud to announce the initiation of our adoption of StudentPrep Academic Development platform. StudentPrep, offers a comprehensive online resource to our families for academic success and college planning.  


Sports Psychologist:
We welcomed Sport Psychology/Wellness Expert, Elizabeth Right to work with players on confidence building through workshops where they developed skills necessary to becoming mentally strong and prepared to remain confident in key situations during tryouts, practice, games and off the field. We look forward to Elizabeth Right returning this year to continue her great work.

For the 2nd year in a row, we have added the opportunity for our players to add Speed and Strength Training to their winter workouts. This has been successful in preventing injury as well an important education and regimen for our athletes. Due to it’s benefits and success, this program will be offered again in the year ahead.

Speed and Strength Training: Our athletes have the opportunity to participate in speed and strength training with Steve Grouley.  These services are offered at a discounted rate and are scheduled to start at the beginning or end of each team’s indoor practices. This is a great opportunity for the girls to stay in shape and learn the proper way to train and enables them to learn how to work out properly on their own time as well. We added this service in 2015 – 2016 and it was a hit! We are excited to continue to offer this training enhancement.

Goals & End of Year Evaluations: Feedback and open communication is vital for each athlete to reach their potential. Our experienced coaches will supply this throughout the year on the practice and tournament fields. In an effort to enhance each player’s experience as a Liberty Laxer, we work with our players to set individual and team goals, as well as help them achieve these goals throughout the year. This upcoming year, each player will receive a personal written evaluation from their coach at the end of the summer season.

Administrative Support: Liberty Lacrosse has full time staff members that work to make sure that communication is clear and constant. We have full time staff to support our families. The staff is available to answer questions via e-mail and phone.  We know everyone is busy and we want to make this part of your life as simple as possible. We work hard to communicate events and reminders. We try our best to give you dates to mark your calendars as early as possible, reminders for your team’s schedule, hotel and travel arrangements, even reminders on packing list.


Team Page: Each age group (by High School Graduation Year) has their own TEAM PAGE. Liberty Lax families have login access to their team page. With one click, players and parents are able to view PRACTICE dates, times and locations; TOURNAMENT dates, locations, waiver links and tournament websites; HOTEL information for their team’s room blocks. This has been an incredible tool that has made planning and organization simpler for our families.
