The Deerfield Academy girls’ lacrosse program carries a long tradition of excellence and competes against some of the strongest teams in New England. With core foundational values centered on dynamic team chemistry and a relentless compete-level, Big Green players learn to excel both as teammates and as individual players. At the varsity level, student-athletes are highly committed and often aspire to play at high-level collegiate programs. Seeking to prepare student-athletes for excellence at both Division I and Division III programs, the Deerfield coaching staff incorporates a variety of defensive systems and offensive sets into team strategy and conceptual teaching. In recent years, DA lacrosse alumnae have gone on to pursue lacrosse careers at collegiate programs including Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Harvard, Villanova, Washington & Lee, and the University of Richmond.
The Deerfield girls lacrosse season begins with an annual spring training trip to Florida where DA players from all levels within the program are invited to gain a head start on improving their skills and compete with teams outside the regular season schedule.
