"Ian was a tremendous asset to us during the coaching and recruiting phase for field hockey for our oldest daughter. On the coaching front, his knowledge of the game and his ability to bring out the best in his players was instrumental in our success at key college recruiting tournaments. I think having daughters that play at all levels of the sport help him connect with his players. In a recruiting world where a lot of correspondence gets ignored, Ian's communications with coaches received prompt responses, saving us valuable time and money by narrowing our focus. Thanks for all your help Ian, we couldn't have gotten here without you!"
- Tim Mahon, parent
"Ian is one of the few coaches that has the experience of playing field hockey internationally, coaching high school and club field hockey and being both a DIII and DI field hockey parent.
Through research and coaching seminars as well as personal experience, Ian is up to date with the latest tactical and technical requirements to prepare players to play at the college level.
I have played and coached with Ian for over 20 years. Ian continues to learn and adjust to the ever changing skill set required to play field hockey from the grade school level to the college level and beyond. His enthusiasm and passion for the game goes without saying. I continue to enjoying working with Ian."
