Alice Dixon has worn many hats in her Virginia women's lacrosse lifetime. She played the sport at Sweet Briar College for four years, and as a club player following her college career.
For 23 years, she was a highly respected women's lacrosse official at the high school and college level. When she retired in 2008, she held a District rating.
Alice spent ten years, starting in the Richmond area, as an efficient assignor of officials for middle and high school and club games. She ultimately assigned over 400 games a year, covering the whole state of Virginia, with the exception of northern Virginia. Alice considered part of that role to be the development of officials, and to that end, she recruited and trained many brand new officials, and mentored many more.
In 1997 she was an important member of a group organizing what is now known as Central Virginia Women's Lacrosse Association, which was formally established in 1998. At the first meeting of the CVWLA, Alice was elected Vice President pro tem along with the other officers until the by-laws were fully approved. After the approval, she became the first Vice President of the organization. In 2003, Alice was made an honorary member of CVWLA.
In 2009, after being asked to assume the role of President by a member of the US Lacrosse Board of Directors, she reconstituted and reorganized the Richmond Chapter of US Lacrosse, which had been dormant and inactive for many years. The Chapter is now a thriving and engaged organization.
More recently, for six years she was the Head Coach of the middle school girls' lacrosse team at Collegiate School.
