ABOUT DOMINION LIBERTY

Started in 2017, The Dominion Liberty Girl’s Lacrosse Club was founded by some of the game’s leading educators to pass their love of women’s lacrosse on to the next generation of girl’s lacrosse players.

Since we believe in a balance and encourage the player to participate in other sports and activities, we practice and compete during the summer and fall seasons. We also provide clinics throughout the winter with our instructors being local collegiate coaches. In the spring, we offer private and small group lessons to any interested players.


OUR PHILOSOPHY 

The coaching staff of Dominion Liberty Girl’s lacrosse believes that passion for the game, playing for the love of the sport, is fundamental to the successful development of our players. We provide our players with the tools they need to succeed, both on and off the field by pushing each player beyond their limits, teaching them that each player is capable of achieving more than they may think is possible.

EDUCATE - LEARN - GROW - ACHIEVE!
