2022 U.S. Women's Staff|
Jenny Levy was named the head coach of the U.S. women's national team on Nov. 9, 2017. Levy will oversee the efforts of the U.S. team program as it builds towards the 2022 World Lacrosse Women's World Championship.
Levy, a former USA Lacrosse Board of Directors member, is the only coach in the history of the University of North Carolina women’s lacrosse. Entering the 2022 season, she has compiled a record of 373-118 in her 26 seasons in Chapel Hill. North Carolina has participated in the NCAA tournament 22 times, reached the semifinals 12 times and won the national championship in 2013 and 2016.
“It is a true honor to be selected as the next head coach of the Women’s National Team,” said Levy. “I expect to continue to build on the tradition of success established by the coaches and players who have come before me, and I am excited to have the opportunity to help lead many of the best players in the world. We will compete for extraordinary excellence and work to build a sustainable program which will include a vertical integration from the National Team Development Program (NTDP) to U19 to our senior team. Ultimately, our goal will be to provide our players with an elite professional experience, which will help them inspire the next generation of players and positively impact the growth of the sport.”
As a player, Levy was a two-time first team All-America selection at the University of Virginia, and helped the Cavaliers to the 1991 NCAA championship when she earned Most Outstanding Attacker honors after scoring five goals in the semifinals and three in the championship game. She was named the NCAA Attacker of the Year in 1992 and went on to play on the U.S. national team for two years.
She is one of just four women's lacrosse coaches to win national championships as a player and a coach.
