Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

Dec. 29, 2021 — To grow a game

Pam Stuper has done a lot in her field hockey existence. As a player, coach, administrator, and even as a charity fundraiser, everything she has done has made an impact.

As a player, she helped the U.S. win bronze at the 1994 FIH Women’s World Cup. She won three national championships at Old Dominion and was an assistant coach for James Madison’s 1995 title-winning team. For the last 17 years, she has not only coached Yale University’s varsity with distinction, but she found time to coach at several levels within the U.S. developmental system.

Stuper has recently announced her resignation from Yale to take a position with the USA Field Hockey Foundation as its executive director. The Foundation looks to develop the sport through investment in players, coaches, and umpires. It has, in the past, looked to grow the game through various initiatives which have had uneven levels of success over the years.

Hopefully, with Stuper’s leadership, the growth of the sport can be accelerated in ways that have not yet been attempted.
