We know there are other choices in Oklahoma for girls competitive travel players. Here is why Red Dirt may be a better fit for you.
1. Best Girls Club in Tulsa.
We only train and field girls teams which allows us to focus on the needs of the female player. Let’s face it, when there is a boys side and girls side, the boys side tends to be the focus. Clubs that cater to both genders will select tournaments for girls that also have boys lacrosse. Instead, we focus on the best tournaments for our players and plan each summer to attend several girls only tournaments. We are also the only club in Tulsa that understands how important IWLCA tournaments are for high school players wanting to play in college. We sign up for at least one summer and one fall IWLCA tournament a year. This is where ALL the college coaches are for girls.
We focus on tournaments in regions that are a better for our players. Realistically, most players don’t want to play on the east coast or west coast. So we do our best to attend tournaments in the Midwest, where we have found most graduating seniors want to go to school. This also helps keep travel costs down for parents.
Oh, and did we mention that we are oldest program in Tulsa for girls? This will be our sixth year so we know what we are doing. While players may try other teams for a summer, they tend to come back to us the next summer because we know what it takes to be success and we focus on creating a family atmosphere.
2. Best Girls Lacrosse Coaches in the State
We have the coaches that you want if girls lacrosse skills are what you want to develop. We don’t use boys coaches that have been repurposed to a girls team for the summer and we don’t bring on parent coaches that have minimal experience. All our head coaches are certified girls lacrosse coaches, with our two high school coaches having level three certification.

In addition to having coaches from the spring programs that place the highest year after year in the state, and one that has coached for four years as the collegiate level, we bring on current college players to work with our youngest players to give those players a mentor to look up to.
3. Complete Athlete packages
We offer “complete athlete” packages so players get performance training along with their lacrosse skills. Lacrosse skills will only take you so far, if athletically you can’t keep up on the field with the other team.
4. College Opportunities!
Take a look at our history and see for yourself how many of our players have gone on to college lacrosse. https://reddirtlacrosse.com/commits We work hard to ensure every player that graduates from our program, has one or more viable scholarship offers. We have on staff a recruiting coordinator that has the network connects with college coaches and works hard to find schools that meet the needs of or players, both academically and from a lacrosse standpoint. Many of our players ultimately decide that college lacrosse is not for them, but the academic options we have uncovered are a better fit. Our goal is to open doors for players that they wouldn’t have found on their own so they can make the best choice for them and their college ambitions.
