Girls U14 2021/2022

Colleen Niklaus

Director of Girl's Programs

The Team NorCal Lacrosse girls’ program is producing championship teams at the 12U and 14U levels.  Since 2015 the program has quadrupled in size, launching a high school team this fall. The program has earned the reputation as one of the elite programs in Northern California.  It is directed by Colleen Niklaus, a former standout college player at UC Davis.  Before joining the NorCal family, Colleen was the Head Coach for the Girls’ program at St.Ignatius College Preparatory where she led the Varsity team to four consecutive regional and state championships.

The experienced NorCal coaching staff places a strong focus on fundamentals and teamwork ensuring players learn to compete, excel and win lacrosse at a high level.  Coaches prioritize building strong relationships with each player, crafting individual plans for improvement and development.   

Due to our success, we continue to grow and are forming more teams every year, participating in highly competitive tournaments such as the Oregon Lacrosse Classic, Pacific Lacrosse Festival, Santa Barbara Showdown, and Sandstorm Lacrosse Festival, the premier winter tournament on the West Coast, drawing teams from all over the western United States.  Each one of these tournaments offers excellent competition and a quality venue to test players’ individual and team skills.  These high-level tournaments additionally provide great opportunities for our high school players to gain necessary experience and make connections with college recruiters.

Over the past year some of our championships have included Santa Barbara Showdown, GrapeVine, Silicon Valley Shootout,and  Pacific Lacrosse Festival.
