Emily Davis ’14 majored in Mathematics with minors in Secondary Education and Coaching. While at LC, she completed her coaching apprenticeship under Head Field Hockey Coach Enza Steele. Recently, Emily was named the first Head Field Hockey Coach of E.C. Glass High School, in Lynchburg, Virginia, where she also teaches math.
Emily says: The apprenticeship made for an easy transition to head coach!
She reflects, “Working under Coach Steele was an amazing experience because I learned so much more than just coaching field hockey. I was able to learn and develop skills that helped me in all aspects of coaching. The apprenticeship made for an easy transition to head coach when it came to ordering equipment and gear, developing practice plans, organizing team activities, and so much more. After completing the apprenticeship, I have continued to go to coach Steele and ask for help and ideas. I have even taken some of my players to a couple of University of Lynchburg Field Hockey camps in the past. I could not have asked for a better experience or be better prepared for the position I hold today!”
