 Marlton Rec Council Girls Lacrosse 2010 Season

The MRC Girls Lacrosse program is the 2nd largest recreation program in all of Southern New Jersey.  Started over 6 years ago, the MRC Girls Lacrosse program has introduced this exciting sport to girls from 1st-8th grade.  The program augments the Marlton Middle School programs at MMS & DeMasi.  The feeder program has been a successful contributor to the Cherokee High School and Local Private High School programs along with Summer Tournament Teams.   A number of high school players have been the recipients of scholarships to the colleges of their choice to continue their education AND play lacrosse.

Welcome from the New MRC Girls Lax Commissioner:  Sarah Frazier  Hello my name is Sarah Frazier. I am a special education teacher at Cherokee High School.  I am also one of the assistant varsity coaches for the women's lacrosse team at Cherokee.  I graduated high school from Lenape where I played lacrosse for four years.  I attended Towson University in Maryland and was a member of the club lacrosse team for four years.  I also was a lacrosse official for the last two years of college.  I have been a lacrosse coach for the last 6 years (one year was with a middle school recreation program, one year was at James Caldwell High School in North Jersey, and the last 3 years were at Cherokee).  I am very excited to be a part of the Marlton Recreation Program because I think that it greatly impacts the Cherokee lacrosse team.  Without this feeder program Cherokee would not be able to compete with most of the teams on our schedule.  I look forward to working with you.
If you ever need to get in touch with me, my email address is  I will be mostly communicating through this website and email.


Lacrosse-The All-American Girls Lacrosse Game:

MRC Sport of Season: Please be advised that the Girls Lacrosse program will strictly enforce the MRC’s Sport of Season policy. While we try to accomodate individual requests, our sport is growing and trying to accomodate for another sport will NOT be a priority. 

MRC Girls Lacrosse is a sanctioned Spring Sport of Season. 
For Example:  Lacrosse practices take precedence over travel soccer practice.   Lacrosse games take precedence over travel soccer games.
We have already worked out our game schedules across Southern NJ taking into consideration the travel soccer players and the majority of their games so the majority of those players can participate in lacrosse. MRC Girls Lacrosse requests that you please be considerate of our volunteers' time and make certain that your daughter participates in as many practices and all games for her lacrosse team.  It is essential to a positive outcome for your daughter and her team. To review the policy please request a copy of the policy from the MRC Administration at

 Girls Lacrosse:   the "fastest game on two feet."

We'll be focusing on the fundamentals of the game such as catching, throwing, groundball scoop, positions and game strategy.  Our program is set according to US Lacrosse rules/regulations.

The Eleven Fundamentals of Lacrosse
1.You must learn to catch, throw, and shoot left-handed and right-handed equally.
2.The more time you play with your stick perpendicular to the ground, as opposed to parallel to the ground, the better player you are.
3. Move the ball. The less time the ball spends in your stick, the better player you are.
4. Move the ball off the ground.
5. Move without the ball.
6. Move to the ball.
7. Look at a spot behind the goalie as you shoot.
8. Shoot with a quick release.
9. Everyone on the field plays both offense and defense.  The ball transitions quickly in this game.
10. A Defender must be faster, quicker and have better stick skills than anyone out on the field.
11. You don't have to take the ball away to be a good defender.
