Meet the Director of CLC Rise, Beth Larkin
Hi there! I am Beth Larkin, Director of CLC Rise and Girls Lacrosse at Centercourt Montclair. I have been a lacrosse coach for the last 22 years, starting with the fledgling youth lacrosse programs in Montclair and Glen Ridge two decades ago. I then moved on to the head coaching position at Montclair Kimberley Academy and now I enter my 13th year as the Coach of Glen Ridge High School, where I have lived with my husband and our two boys. In my 13 years at Glen Ridge, our program has elevated to a top state-ranked team, won 2 State Championships, 3 Sectional Championships, 7 Essex County Championships, and multiple Conference Championships.
I have coached All-Americans, Academic All-Americans, All-State, County and Conference Players, and Players of the Year. I was also named the 2010 New Jersey Coach of the Year and have received the Recognition Award from the NJSIAA. Our small school touts a plethora of players to excel as team captains, DIII Attackmen of the Year and garnering Conference and All-American accolades. I have been most proud as a coach for the accomplishments of these fine young athletes throughout their high school and collegiate career and their life after lacrosse.
What is CLC Rise?
I am deeply passionate about the growth and development of any player that walks through our doors as a CLC Rise athlete. We believe strongly in mentorship and guiding them to be the best they can be on and off the field. As a Rise athlete, you are guided by our amazing professional and energetic coaches who truly care about you. I am a firm believer in the PROCESS, not the PRODUCT, and with this mindset, our Rise athletes can attain and exceed the goals they set for themselves and their team.
Rise is the mindset, perspective, and culture for our teams. Rise demonstrates the act of continually moving upward. By embracing the process and committing to one another, we lift everyone. We strongly believe in building from within and in doing so, a team can RISE in remarkable ways. Rise exemplifies that we have no limits as to how high we can climb together!
CLC Tryouts are open to lacrosse players that are NOT currently on a CLC roster in the noted age groups.
These tryouts are for consideration to one of our regional CLC teams. At this tryout players will be assessed for our CLC RISE teams based out of Montclair (which serve Essex/Bergen/Passaic and surrounding regions).
