Winning the 2016 and 2013 National Championship gives credibility to the Carolina Women's Lacrosse program and all that it stands for... and it starts at the top! The single most important factor of our camps is our superb coaching! The Carolina coaching staff is thrilled about having outstanding collegiate coaches, UNC players, as well as US players to assist with low camper to counselor ratio.

With 23 seasons as a head coach at North Carolina under her belt, Jenny Levy is among the top coaches in women’s lacrosse history.  The owner of two national championships, she is the fourth-winningest coach in NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse history, the fourth-winningest active coach in the nation and a two-time National Coach of the Year. 

Levy enters the 2017 season with a career record of 295-106, including 60-29 in ACC play.

She has led the Tar Heels to nine appearances in the NCAA Tournament semifinals, including six in the last eight years.  Her 29 NCAA Tournament wins are fourth in NCAA history.

Levy is the fourth coach in women’s lacrosse history to win an NCAA championship as a player (with Virginia in 1991) and as a head coach. She is the eighth coach to win multiple NCAA titles.

In 2016, UNC set a school record for most wins (20) and fewest losses (two) in a season, went 7-0 to win the ACC regular season and won the second ACC Tournament and NCAA Tournament titles in program history. The Tar Heels also won a program-record 17 games in a row to close the season. Levy earned National Coach of the Year honors after the season.
