Goalie Training

Thanks to our Finish Strong campaign, all of our goalies had three training sessions with goalkeeper specialist, Jill Dedman. Jill was an All-American, Big East Goalkeeper of the Year (twice) at Boston College and was a goalkeeper on the US National Team from 2001- 2004, a member or the USA Indoor Team from 2005-2006, then on the outdoor team again from 2006-2008. Jill coached at the collegiate level for University at Albany, Indiana University, and University of California in Berkeley, CA. She now runs Blockstar Field Hockey and consults with collegiate and high school teams as a goalkeeper specialist. Thanks for the trainings, Jill!

And while we are on the subject of goalkeepers: Newport Harbor Field Hockey Alum Sydney King (Class of 2011) is a redshirt junior goalkeeper for the University of Louisville Division 1 Field Hockey Team. The No. 14 University of Louisville field hockey team had a huge 3-2 win over No. 1 North Carolina on Saturday. Great work, Syd!
