Hailey Darko

2023 | GA: Canton
Recruit Profile
I am dedicated- when I'm not playing lacrosse, I'm practicing/training lacrosse. I'm strong, coachable, and a team leader. Never give up, great attitude, hard worker, honors student, multi-sport athlete.

My name is Hailey Darko and I am a 2023 Goalie for the Atlanta Storm 2023 Elite Blue team for my 3rd consecutive year. 2x Under Armour 150 Top Player (2020 and 2021), 2021 Under Armour All-American Spotlight. I was honored to receive the ALL-COUNTY Defensive Player of the Year 2021, and CHS Varsity MVP Defensive Player of the Year 2020-2021 with a 52% save rate. Also, I competed in the 2019 Under Armour All-American Call Back Academy, where I had the honor of working with one of the best goalie coaches in women's lacrosse: Megan Taylor. My 2019-2020 freshman year in high school I was the starting goalie for the Varsity team, and played as the starting goalie 2018-2019 for the JV team as an eighth-grader. I am a multisport athlete playing lacrosse, high school varsity flag football, and I train mma.

Throughout the passed few years, I had the opportunity to work with high level college lacrosse players and coaches from around the world. Competing at the highest levels of lacrosse and meeting extraordinary women in this sport has been such an amazing experience. I have learned strong communication skills on the field, how to have command over the defense when needed, and ability to take over the game at any moment. I have improved every year on my lacrosse IQ by understanding the strategy behind a play, accurately evaluating a situation, taking action and how to mentality not get defeated if I am scored on.

Last year, I went through the GWLUB Youth Lacrosse Official Training and have a better understanding of the game from an officials point. My passion for the game of lacrosse makes me eager to keep training and learning to get better everyday. Not only at being the best goalie and teammate for my team/family, but also in the classroom. When I am not studying, at practice, tournaments or school, you will find me training in private lessons with college and professional lacrosse trainers, coaching the younger youth program, managing the high school boys basketball team, training in mma, volunteering at church ministry, supporting my little brother at his sporting events, or spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to continuing my education and lacrosse journey as a Division 1 Women's Lacrosse Goalie!
