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.

Fall Tournaments

The 2nd Annual ‘Stoga 5v5 Lax Fest (, which will feature youth clinic sessions and an afternoon of small-sided round robin games, Conestoga High on Oct 4. The Lax Fest will be staged in a fun and festive setting with dance contests, skills competition, food, refreshments, vendors, prizes and other fun activities! This year, the event will help raise money for the Fighting Back Scholarship Program and its Peter Kienzle Fund in particular. Fighting Back is an organization based in Malvern that assists individuals who are recovering from a life-changing illness or injury and are without the finances needed to participate in a rehabilitative exercise program. The Kienzle Fund was established in memory of Peter Kienzle, a cherished member of the Conestoga lacrosse community. The event will honor Pete’s courageous fight against cancer and proceeds from the Kienzle Fund will provide one year of post-rehabilitative exercise for two individuals – a veteran and a civilian. Interested sponsors are invited to support the event and this worthy cause; several sponsorship levels are available. Eligibility: This event is open to girls in Grades 5-9 (i.e., Graduation Years 2019-2023). Township programs, clubs, coaches and parent promoters are encouraged to sign-up as many teams as interest permits. “A” and “B” brackets will be available (subject to level of interest) to enable teams to choose the appropriate level of competition. The event is also open to individuals who are not on a team but would like to experience the increasingly popular 5v5 format as members of “house teams” coached by members of the Conestoga girls’ varsity lacrosse team and/or volunteer coaches.
