welcome

Welcome to James Madison field hockey! As the head women’s field hockey coach it is with great pride that I share our nationally-ranked program and university with you. It is an honor and a privilege to represent such a wonderful program and university. Entering my 10th season as the head coach, I am convinced there is no better place, than James Madison University for a young person to grow and learn as a student and as an athlete. Our coaches, student-athlete services staff, strength & conditioning staff, sports medicine staff, administrative staff and athletics communications staff all work very hard to coordinate their efforts to provide the best possible experience for the JMU student-athlete. “Be the Change” is the JMU motto and it is truly what our student-athletes experience at JMU. We have great people working together for a common goal to be the best they can be. As the coach of the field hockey team, I recruit individuals into our program who are able to commit to being the very best they can be in a team-oriented, “All together One,” environment. Our goal every year is to be a nationallyranked top-ten program that competes in the NCAA tournament. To meet that goal, it is imperative that team needs come first before individual needs and wants. It is also essential for the success of our program that we attract individuals who are willing to excel in the classroom as well as on the field. With over 100 majors to choose from, student-athletes at JMU have a large window of August 30 Kent State. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7 p.m. opportunity to graduate with a very powerful September degree in addition to hav 1 Ball State . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1:30 p.m. ing had the opportunity 6 at American . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 p.m. to compete at the highest 8 at Columbia. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 p.m. level possible within NCAA 11 at Longwood . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 p.m. Division I Field Hockey. 15 at Richmond. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 p.m.
