SuperNoVa Select is a traveling girls lacrosse club. Liz Schaffner, former 10 year Assistant Coach at George Mason University, created SuperNoVa Select in an effort to foster the growth of girls lacrosse in Northern Virginia while helping high school players gain exposure to the college recruiters.
There will be a tryout for all players at the beginning of every season (usually at the beginning of December). Players are evaluated on their athleticism, lacrosse skills and coachability.
Usually we participate in 4 tournaments over the summer and 2 in the fall. Past tournaments include Top of the Bay, Charm City, All Star Express, Gatorfest, Upper Atlantic Tournament, Champion's Cup, All American Capital Cup, Club National Chamionships, Rivalry Challenge and Mid Atlantic Tournament. Most tournaments that we attend are in MD, PA or VA.
We try to remain fair with equal playing time for all players. However, we do take into account consistent attendance at practices in addition to the work ethic and the attitude of each player.
For the 2013 season (summer and fall), the team fee for the classes of 2014 and 2015 is $1175 per player . The team fee covers field and facility rentals, access to team website, practice reversible, tournament uniform, tournament fees for three (3) mandatory summer tournaments, coaching at practices and tournaments, spirit pack, use of SuperNoVa staff as college references and end of the summer individual evaluation. This fee does NOT include the fall tournament fees.
For the classes of 2016, 2017 & 2018 the team fee is $775 per player and includes everything above except the 3 mandatory tournament fees. The team fee DOES NOT include: tournament fees, hotel arrangements or travel expenses to tournaments. Siblings are $400 but the fee does NOT include tournament or travel fees.

Practices are mainly held at George Mason University in Fairfax. Alternate practice sites include the Word of Grace facility (Old Redskins Park) off Rt. 28 and Marymount University in Arlington.
Practice dates are usually dictated by field availability. 2012 practices will start in May on Sundays only however, once the weekend tournaments start, we will move to week night practices.
There will be approximately 18-25 practices between May and November.
For the 2013 season, our goal is to field 5 teams: two combination teams of rising seniors and rising juniors (2014 & 2015), two combination teams of rising sophomores and rising freshmen (2016 & 2017) and a developmental rising 8th grade team (2018).
As the director of the SuperNoVa Select program, Liz takes on all the administrative duties while also overseeing the progress of the athletes at the practices as well as the tournaments. Each team will have a head coach and an assistant coach. The coaches are either local college coaches or Northern Virginia high school coaches. To see the current coaches, click on each team name.
Travel and hotel arrangements are the responsibility of each player and their family. Hotel blocks will be secured by Liz for some tournaments, however, players are not required to stay in the team hotel. Supervision of athletes while traveling is the responsibility of each individual family.
