Beth demands the best of her players and expects them to work hard, both in academics and hockey. She supports individuality in her players while expecting social cohesion. While she may seem to take team voice seriously, it was common to feel belittled or even manipulated by her. However, she does know her stuff. While her pursuit for perfection from her team was often frustrating and tiring, I did more than I ever thought I could accomplish at Skidmore because of the work ethic she imparted.

Beth is a great & effective coach. She turns her bench players into starters to continue on maintaining the strong SCFH reputation. You'll become a better player under her, guaranteed, with a deeper understanding of game & strategy. She is harder on the non-starters & doesn't connect to them as well. If you aren't cutting it, you'll know it. The key is to not take her tone personally, and push yourself to be better- not to be discouraged or think you'll never play.

Great coach, knows a lot about the game and was voted NCAAs coach of the year many times. Plays favoritism at practice but in games the best players will play.

Beth is very straight forward in the recruiting process, however she does play favorites during the season. She is less forward once a player is on the team. She can come off cold but has an expansive knowledge of field hockey and our components.
