GA's varsity girls lacrosse plays on Oberkircher Field, a 180 x 300 feet turf field located in Sisters' Woods.
Sisters’ Woods is home to varsity field hockey, varsity girls lacrosse, and varsity girls soccer programs. It opened in the fall of 2010 when two new artificial turf fields wereinstalled — Oberkircher Field and Jordan Field. The fields are identical in size at 180 x 300’ and each has their own scoreboard with clock and home and away scoring areas. There is a small spectator seating area next to Oberkircher Field (field closest to the walking path), while Jordan Field has a natural berm where spectators can view the contest from a short height above field level. The fields can be lined for lacrosse, soccer and/or field hockey. Goals for each of those sports are available as well. Portable restrooms are on-site for participant and spectator use. Access to the fields can be attained by parking in the Carey Stadium Lot and using the brick pathway to Sisters’ Woods, or by parking on the GA campus, crossing the Wissahickon Creek on foot to the brick pathway that leads to the fields. There is a donkey set up alongside Oberkircher Field where the scoring table and video setup can be placed. Germantown Academy has hosted many soccer and lacrosse tournaments for all ages on Sisters’ Woods.

Germantown Academy's girls lacrosse team showed improvement last season by earning the fifth seed in the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association Tournament after receiving the eighth seed in 2016. Behind first-year Head Coach Mary Dean, the Patriots will be looking to continue that growth into 2018.
Germantown Academy Upper School student-athletes gained information about the college recruitment process today during the Let’s Do Lunch Program, thanks to Villanova University women’s lacrosse coach - and Germantown Academy alum - Julie Shaner Young '97.
Germantown Academy Director of Athletics Josh MacArthur has announced the hiring of Mary Dean as the new varsity head coach of girls lacrosse. In this role, Dean will oversee the entire 6-12 vertically aligned girls lacrosse program.
The Germantown Academy Department of Athletics is pleased to provide the following information for the FALL 2017 preseason Upper School sports (this includes ANYONE who wants to participate in Upper School sports at any level). Student-athletes can bring lunch or bring money to buy/order lunch. Please contact the coach if you have any questions. Fall 2017 schedules will be updated this summer.
