Kevin Kelly

The winningest coach in program history, Kevin Kelly completed his ninth season at the helm of the Manhattanville field hockey team in 2016.

Read Full Bio

The only coach in program history to record four double-digit win totals, Kelly is the program's all-time winningest coach with 76 victories at Manhattanville. In addition, the team's three straight 11-win seasons from 2011 to 2013 are the third-most successful three-year stretch in program history and mark only the fourth time ever that a Valiant field hockey program has achieved double-digit wins three years in a row.

In 2016 Kelly helped guide a small squad to their first MAC Freedom postseason berth since 2011, earning the fourth seed in the MAC Freedom Tournament and also an ECAC Division III Field Hockey Tournament berth.  Defender Bregje Smits led four All-Conference honorees and was also named to the Longstreth/NFHCA Division III South Atlantic All-Region team after scoring 15 goals on the year.

Kelly helped lead the team to third-straight 11-8 record in 2013, placing the team in a four-way tie for second place in the competitive Freedom Conference. Manhattanville's record-setting attack ranked eighth in Division III by averaging 4.26 goals per game and set new program records with 81 goals, 43 assists and 207 points as a team. Senior Amanda DeChent matched her program and Freedom Conference single-season records with 30 goals and 73 points to earn her second straight NFHCA All-American selection, NFHCA All-South Region first-team honor and Freedom Conference Player of the Year award.

In his fourth season with the Valiants, Kelly delivered Manhattanville to a Freedom Conference Tournament appearance for the first time. The team came out of the gates hot, tying the program record for best nine-game start to a season with an 8-1 mark, and saw four Valiants named to the All-Freedom Conference second team, the most All-Conference honorees since the program's first year in the conference in 2003.

Kelly came to Manhattanville from Rye High School, where he served as the head coach of the varsity field hockey team for 30 years. He experienced unparalleled success at the school, posting a career record of 391-56-9 (.867), and built a resume that includes four New York State championships, five regional titles and nearly 20 league championships in addition to three Section 1 Coach of the Year honors. Kelly, whose Rye program was named the "Team of the Decade" by New York State, finished his high school career with the second-highest win total among active New York coaches.

Loved it

I would 100% recommend this camp, my daughter loved it and can't wait to go back next year. She met a lot of girls from other schools and said everyone was welcoming regardless of your skill level.

Helped my beginner

The camp gave my daughter confidence that she would be able to successfully try out for her 7th grade Modified team having basic skills in place before try outs begin.

Can't wait to return

My daughter went to camp with no playing experience. She developed skills, learned the game, and did not feel intimidated. She had a wonderful time, and can't wait to return.

Most productive camp

Dear New Camper, I've been to a couple of camps in my past 3 years playing, but this was by far my favorite and most productive! I learned so much in just 4 days and became more aware of certain physical and mental skills needed to apply in game situations. I also become more confident with the many scrimmages we played, that were coached by some of the girls who play for the college. Seeing them play was also fun to see the skill you need to compete at that level! The coaching staff was great and I was able to make a lot of new friends while I was there too! I highly recommend this camp, I had so much fun and learned so much!

Great for all skill levels

Challenged my Varsity Player and helped her get in shape for tryouts. At the same time, taught my beginner 6th grader the fundamentals of the game. Made it fun for both - even though neither girl had friends at the camp.

High intensity training

It is a great camp to improve your skills. The intensity level is what it should be for high school student FH players. The coaches are funny, talented, and really care about improving your skills as well as you having a good experience. I highly recommend this camp.
