The Quaker City Lacrosse Club coaches and trains middle and high school tournament teams (grades 1 through 12). The club is coached by the staff of the 2013 PIAA State Championship Girls Lacrosse program Harriton HS . Our Coaches have played at Brown, Temple, George Mason, Duke, Lehigh, Ohio State, Cornell, Old Dominion, Pomona, Mary Washington, and Haverford College. Our strong belief is that you need to practice to get better. We are not just a club that practices a few times in the summer and goes to tournaments. For our current HS level teams, we have held over 30 practices and our MS school girls have practiced close to 30 times. We also coach our teams in a winter league and the middle school teams in a fall league.
