Welcome to PPLC!!! The FUTURE of Girl's Club Lacrosse!!!
Welcome to the best opportunity in girls' club lacrosse in Pittsburgh!! 

Our program will promote the highest level of high school and middle school play of lacrosse focusing on quality instruction and enjoying the best game on the planet.  We take great pride in employing coaches coming from the highest level of the women’s game to teach the skills necessary to succeed at every level of play. We will assist every member of our program with the knowledge of the recruiting process and a fair evaluation of where each player will best fit in the next level. 

Lastly, our club is committed to the growth of each individual player and will promote sportsmanship at all times.   All of our coaches, administrators and players will represent the club and treat each other with the utmost respect and shared passion for the sport of lacrosse.

Back to School!


Temperatures are dropping a bit, daylight is getting shorter, and back to school shopping is wrapping up!  The 2015/2016 school year is on our doorstep and we wanted to take a moment to wish all of our PPLC staff and players the best of luck as they head back!

The 2015 PPLC Summer Staff was one of our best yet!  Our goal annually is to employ women that have played or coached at the NCAA Division I, II, or III level.  We believe that this structure serves as the foundation to provide our players with amazing female role models as well as a "real-time" resource for those players wanting to play at the next level.

PPLC College Coaching Staff Shoutout!  As all of our collegiate coaches head back to campus to welcome their teams, we would like to congratulate SAM STRUSS on her appointment as the Assistant Coach at Division I, Gardner-Webb University!

PPLC C.I.T (Coach In Training Program):  In it's 2nd year, this program was developed to give college bound athletes the opportunity to continue to learn through coaching while giving back to the game.  C.I.T's are responsible for field/drill set-up and break down, support during team building activities, warm up/cool down, and participating in demo's!  This is a paid opportunity and applications will be accepted beginning April 2016!

Interns are responsible for developing warm up, assisting coaches in drills, & individual player feedback.  This is a paid opportunity and applications will be accepted beginning April 2016!

The sport of lacrosse is growing in the Western PA area and we couldn't be more proud to be just one of the many vehicles to support that growth!  We believe strongly that there is strong talent in both the coaching and athlete pools.  Best of luck to everyone from the Pittsburgh lacrosse community that is participating at the collegiate level!  "Burgh Pride!

Who we are and what makes us different...
The idea is really simple, as three current Division I college coaches we recognized a need in Pittsburgh to contribute to the growth of girl's lacrosse in the area.  So one day over lunch we decided the best way to get involved was to run our own club program.  Yes, it would have been easier to get involved with the already established local organizations but honestly we didn't feel that we would be able to put the quality product that we had envisioned into fruition. 

That was were Pittsburgh Premier was born.   As college coaches we are 100 percent committed to the fundamental growth of each player, honest evaluations of skills and placement within the program, and lastly a forthright and comprehensive recruiting service as you head towards navigating the college process. 

With over 40 collective years in the college lacrosse ranks, and serving at various academic institutions each of us brings a unique set of skills within teaching lacrosse to every age group.  But honestly we don't expect you to just believe us, we invite you to come to practice and see for yourself!  Our staff will be available after to discuss any questions you might have about Pittsburgh Premier and why we might be the right fit for your family.

Katrina, Mike and Katy
