Talking Female Goalies with Lady Lax Goalies aka Lauren Saffoori – LGR Episode #90

Lauren Saffoori runs Lady Lax Goalies which has the goal of: train, educate, and empower. Her training academy caters exclusively to female lacrosse goalies and those that support them.

We get a lot of requests around here for more female specific content. So it was great to have a conversation with Lauren about female goalies, her story, and her passion for training little lady goalies.

A Philadelphia native who first picked up a stick at the age of 8, Lauren was a four year varsity starter before playing at the collegiate level as a Division 1 goalie for Temple University. During her career as a Temple Owl she won an A-10 Championship and made the NCAA playoffs. After college she moved to Northern Virginia and served as a career firefighter with the Fairfax County Fire Department for 10 years.

Lauren’s passion for lacrosse never wavered, bringing her back to the field in 2011 as the Assistant Coach and Goalie Coach for Centreville High School. Over her nine year career with Centerville, she helped lead the Lady Wildcats to appearances in two State Semifinals and a State Championship.  In 2019 she graduated her first All-American goalie who currently plays at Duke University. Today she serves as the Goalie Coach for Oakton High School.

In addition to coaching high school teams, Lauren evaluates goalies for the Under Armor All-American Team, is the goalie coach for the Virginia Metro Lacrosse Club, and supports and trains goalies and coaches for several local recreation programs.

Lauren’s children are often seen playing lacrosse on the sidelines at practice, continuing in the family tradition. Off the field, Lauren spends her time snowboarding, watching her beloved Philadelphia Eagles beat her husband’s New York Giants, and baking original cupcake designs for family and friends.
