More About Coach Colleen

I've been coaching and playing field hockey for over 20 years. I played Division I and have coached at the Division III level in the United States. I have also coached and/or played in the Netherlands, England and Australia. I'm happy to help with game tactics, specific skills or overall fitness for the sport. I tailor my sessions to the athletes needs. We would first do some general skills testing so I have a good idea where your current skill level and game sense stand.

I'm happy to coach both one on one or in a group session as requested. And play as necessary to coach a skill or concept. Some athletes learn better via demos than descriptions.

I love the sport of field hockey and enjoy helping athletes take their game to the next level. Please get in touch with any specific questions you might have.

Coach Colleen is amazing! My daughter has never played Field Hockey, and over a few sessions Coach Colleen provided her with the skills and confidence to try out for her school team. And she made the team :)! Colleen’s positive and supportive energy enhances all of the talent and experience she brings to her coaching. In just four sessions, Coach Colleen reviewed the dynamics and concepts of the game, taught my daughter all stick and ball skills, practiced these skills through creative and instructional drills, evaluated my daughter’s playing style, provided her with guidance on best field position, ran her through standard protocol for a field hockey practice with running/warm ups/drills, and did all of this with a friendly, supportive and positive coaching style. She provided homework in between sessions to help my daughter better understand the structure of the game as well as drills to practice core skills sets (like dribbling, passing/receiving, pushing/pulling). Colleen was a fantastic coach, and we highly recommend her to players at any level. She is awesome!!!

Coach Colleen is a wonderful coach/trainer. My daughter is heading to college in a few weeks and she really honed in on exactly what she needed, helped build her confidence, and gave her some great tips. I highly recommend her as a coach!!

I reached out to Colleen to get prepared for the collegiate level and after the first session I can say that I will be able to get there. One on one’s are great with her because you get to pick what you want to work on individually and she notices the little details that make a difference while doing drills. I definitely recommend anyone going into college or already in college to reach out to Colleen if you want to improve your game.

she is a really good coach. i enjoyed training with her and i cant wait to train again soon !

Loved loved Colleen! She really gave my daughter not only great field hockey instruction but also advice and insight on playing in college. She made an impact on my daughter and we can't wait to work with Colleen again!

Coach Coleen is a highly skilled coach who immediately related well with our 13 year old daughter.

Her lessons and drills helped our daughter to see improvements during the session.

We strongly recommend Coach Colleen

Coach Colleen was super positive and encouraging with our daughter-a field hockey beginner. She covered so much in a single session and assigned homework that our child enthusiastically completed each day. Can’t wait for our next session!

Colleen is a great trainer. Colleen has a very good teaching technique, my daughter enjoyed the session and felt it was very informative. We will be scheduling more sessions.

Coach Colleen took the time to learn about my daughter and the areas that she needs improvement. After one lesson, we can see the techinque transferred to the field already. My daughter is looking forward to the next sessions.

Colleen is awesome.

My daughter loves working with Colleen.

My daughter loves training with Coach Colleen!!

We love coach Colleen. Looking forward to another session with her.

Cloaca Colleen was a great coach!

Wonderful coach. We love coach colleen

Colleen is amazing! She's very warm and bubbly and is very knowledgable about the sport. She's a fast responder and is flexible with training times. She's a great coach and my field hockey skills are already improving! I hope to continue training with her; what a great person and coach!

Coach Colleen was excellent. She helped prepare my daughter for preseason and provided a structured set of drills that helped improve her skill set. She was motivational, upbeat, and immediately made my daughter feel comfortable. I highly recommend her.

Coach Colleen was great to work with. Before meeting her I was able to tell her what I needed to work on. Coach made sure that we worked on all of my areas of concern. She explained each drill and the reason for it. She was patient and had a great sense of humor. I really enjoyed working with her and look forward to working with her again.

My daughter had her first session with Colleen last week. I couldn't be happier. Colleen is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She worked with my daughter to introduce basic field hockey concepts, field positions and equipment. I am already scheduling additional coaching sessions for my daughter. I highly recommend Colleen!

We have only done two sessions with Coach Colleen but so far we are extremely satisfied. She is working with my young daughter to build basic skills, teach the game and make it fun. Colleen has put together two very well thought out session plans incorporating what she thinks is most important plus everything I asked for from the beginning. In other words she is flexible and a great listener. As for knowledge of the sport... there is no question that Colleen holds all of the expertise one would expect from a professional field hockey coach.

As I said we are still early in our working relationship with Colleen but it has been a pleasure and my daughter can't wait for her third session. Highly recommend.

Colleen has been very helpful in developing my field hockey skills. She has been especially helpful in developing and helping to fine tuning skills that would otherwise be ignored in a team practice. I have learned things I would never have been able to learn through just videos, playing on teams and watching games. I look forward to continuing working with her.

Colleen is the perfect example of a dedicated coach to the sport of field hockey. She is very energetic and enthusiastic about passing on her knowledge & skills. She is elevating my daughter's game to a higher level. I have seen major improvements in her technique on the field after only 2 lessons. I would highly recommend Colleen for players of any age and any experience level. My daughter really enjoys her sessions with Colleen!

Colleen is an excellent coach. She is professional, full of energy and prepared for our sessions. Her knowledge and methods are current. I would consider Collen an expert in the game of field hockey in all aspects; skills, game play, equipment and personnel. Her experiences and depth shows immediately. She was able to meet my daughter’s level of play and make improvements immediately. I would easily recommend Colleen for any level of player looking to improve.
