“ Sarah Walsh brings a wealth of knowledge. She has experience both as a successful student-athlete and college coach at an established program. Most recently she has spent time working with middle school and high school athletes as a mentor and a skills coach.  My experience with Sarah in the Stars program and St. Stephens and St. Agnes School High School team has been rewarding.

"Sarah Walsh's Lacrossover is the best program in Northern Virginia to help players at any stage of lacrosse develop and strengthen core skills. I have worked with Sarah for one-on-one lessons for my daughters as well as small group sessions for them and their teammates. Every sessions is well-planned and specific to the position and skill level of the girls involved and what they are trying to accomplish. Sarah and her coaches relate very well to players of all ages, but also hold them accountable for focus and hard-work during sessions. Lacrossover coaches also provide detailed feedback and recommendations from lessons and show a genuine interest in how the girls use what they learn in their rec, club and school programs. Finally, Sarah is organized, prompt and very accessible which makes planning lessons very easy -- especially for working parents. No matter what age or skill level your daughter is at, Lacrossover offers a quality of coaching that is unique to this area and can make a real difference for players who really want to up their game."

"Playing for Sarah was and still is one of the joys of my lacrosse career. She quickly got to know me as a lacrosse player and person and because of that, coached me in exactly the ways I needed to become the best player I could be. Her constant investment in my lacrosse and personal development has been a huge motivator in my growth as a player and her ability to instruct and give feedback has led to tangible improvements in my skills."

"Many people can coach your child, but it is a rare thing indeed when they can reach your daughter and teach her about the game in the way that Sarah does. When people ask us about Sarah, I tell them, “there is no one better!” Given the changes she has made in our daughter, she is known as “the lacrosse whisperer” in our family. She has a gift! We love her!"

Sarah is an amazing coach!  My daughter has done many clinics, small groups, and private lessons with Sarah.  The best part to me is that she always gets in the car at the end and says, "That was so much fun!"  Sarah works on technique and game strategy, and really pushes the girls.  She challenges the girls to play their best, and then they live up to expectations. I think that Sarah helped my daughter tremendously. She has improved her skills and game play, but most importantly, she has increased her confidence a great deal, and this translates to great performance on her lacrosse teams.  Highest recommendation for Sarah!

"Coach Walsh's sessions are always a great balance of fun and hard work. She truly makes every workout a blast that I always look forward to and learn so much from. She is constantly willing to explain concepts over and over until I get them and has unlimited patience to work with me until I fully understand.  Her sessions helped developed my Lacrosse IQ along with my confidence. She always believed in me even when I didn't and helped mold me into the player I am today."

"Our daughter has been so fortunate to work with Sarah over the last few years. She not only works on lacrosse skills, but she has also developed her mental and emotional attributes. She helped her become a better overall individual. Our only regret is not knowing her sooner."
