My daughter was interested in playing field hockey as a freshman, however had never played the game before let alone the position of goalie. We were looking for individual skill instruction and Kim and Kinsella Connections were recommended to us. We are so glad we called! Kim quickly demonstrated her ability to develop a player and take them as far as they needed or wanted to go. She was able to help my daughter excel both with basic skills as well as her self confidence in the position. My daughter was chosen by her coaches as co-defensive player of the year. Kim also shares her passion for the game and my daughter continues to want to learn more about the sport because of working with Kim.
