More About Coach Nicole

Nicole has coached at all levels, from beginners all the way to Division I college athletes. Nicole has taught private lessons as well as team summer camps and clinics. She focuses on strengthening the fundamentals of the game. Finesse comes after the foundation is solid and she will work to get you there.

Three-year varsity midfielder for the Warriors at Liverpool High School. As team captain her senior year. Helped lead her team to the Section III co-Championship in 2004 and the Section III Finalists in 2005

Nicole was named to the Empire State Team (Central), The Central New York I Indoor (Pool A) and the Central New York Festival Team. She received honors that included first-team all-state, first-team all-league (3x), second-team all-state and Scholar Athlete (3x) She also was MVP (2x).

Nicole was recruited to play at Syracuse University (ranked 2nd in the nation). After suffering an injury at Syracuse, she came back to the sport and traveled to play in England. In England she played for two teams, her University Team (University of the Arts, Chelsea) and for Club Wapping's Elite team. During her tour in England, she was coached by the Men's National Coach and she played against some of England's finest including several of England's Olympic players.

First we will cover the fundamentals, so I can assess what the strengths and weakness are. I believe in having a strong foundation, foot work, passing and stopping, simple dodging techniques, etc. Once a solid foundation is built we can move on to more finesse skills (stick work, dynamic receiving, defensive technique, etc). Or if there are specific areas the athlete wants to address we can concentrate on them.

Great lesson

My daughter got so much out of her first pitching lesson with Nicole. Nicole is very professional and provided invaluable feedback and lessons for my daughter to succeed.

Very helpful and an awesome coach. I learned more from Nicole in 2 sessions than I did from my old coach in years.

Coach Nicole is awesome.
My daughter learns so much and comes away from each session a more confident athlete.

Coach Nicole is a great coach! She is patient, thorough and highly encouraging! She starts with the very basics to build form and strength while also preserving safety. Nothing like seeing my daughter smile when she "nails it" and her determination when she senses what went wrong and correct it!

Spectacular...Charlotte, age 11, had a great time and is looking forward to another lesson.

Awesome at explaining everything from just 5 minutes in. Definitely recommend even for a 21+ player

Great coaching!

Nicole is a great coach and my daughter feels that she has improved a lot after each and is looking forward to the next session.

My daughter was encouraged to join her middle school field hockey team but the coaches were not able to address necessary basic skills for every player. Coach Nicole changed all of that. With a patient temperament and enthusiastic spirit, Coach Nicole began teaching form and skills vital to ball control. She also gave my daughter drills to do at home that would enforce what was learned in lessons. Nicole has been a joy to work with and I would recommend her with the utmost confidence in her ability to improve your game at whatever level you currently enjoy. She really understands the game, having successfully competed for so many years, and manages to communicate what she has learned with ease and clarity.

Nicole is an excellent coach. I feel more confident and patient at the plate. I definitely would recommend her.

Amazing, the best there is!

Coach Nicole has been great with our pitchers. She perfected the form and delivery of our pitchers and taught the catchers how to monitor the pitcher. She has been great to work with and the girls can't wait for their next session.

I learned lot from Nicole! She was patient with me but also challenged me, and was flexible to my learning style. My skills improved so much over my five sessions with Nicole, and I now have more confidence in the field. I highly recommend!

Coach Nicole was great! She was responsive, prompt, friendly and knowledgable. Her approach was methodical, which my 12-year old daughter liked. We look forward to seeing her again soon.

Nicole was great! Very patient and able to provide immediate correction and alternate drills when my daughter did not get it right away. Really excellent - we booked another session right away.

Coach Nicole was very nice and patient and helped me to improve my footwork.

We had our 1st session on Sunday and Nicole was great. She she made sure my daughter understood the mechanics of holding a softball and made sure she positioned her arm and wrist the right way. We can't wait for her next session

Nicole was great!

Coach Nicole is very patient! My daughter found her first lesson enjoyable and informative! All That needs to be said is that my daughter said to me book more lessons. Which I have done. Thanks

Coach Nicole was amazing! She was incredibly responsive and my children retainedk saying that she was incredibly nice and that they learned a lot! They can't wait to meet her again.

Coach Nicole was prompt, professional and really helped my daughter focus on necessary fundamentals. She broke the basics down in a way that was fun but productive and kept her focused.

I worked with Nicole during my high school field hockey career and during my collegiate career. A lot of what I learned from Nicole I still continue to use today. She has a way of breaking things down so that you as a player can understand what you are doing and why you are doing it. She also makes sure that whatever skill she is teaching you is practiced until you as a player can complete the skill successfully. She can teach the fundamentals and physical skills of the game, but she is also great with the mental aspect like positioning where you should be and when you should be there. I learned a lot during my summers with Nicole and she helped me to grow into the successful player that I was.
