Loomis Chaffee girls’ ice hockey has a long and proud tradition of excellence going back to the earliest days of girls’ prep school hockey. In the years since girls first started playing in the New England prep schools, the league has grown tremendously along with the sport, and now Loomis Chaffee plays in one of the top girls’ high school hockey leagues in the country. The team is highly competitive in Division I, regularly playing the best teams and consistently finishing in the top tier of the league.
Coaches Liz Leyden, Chuck Vernon, and Maggie Kennedy '05 work hard to combine individual skill development with systematic team play daily in practice. In addition to pushing each player to become a better hockey player, to become her “best self,” we emphasize teamwork, passion, commitment, communication, character, and excellence - in the classroom, on the ice and in life. By creating an atmosphere that supports and challenges the student-athletes, we prepare players to succeed both at Loomis Chaffee and the next level. Players have recently gone on to play collegiate hockey at schools such as Boston College, Colgate, Dartmouth, Harvard, Holy Cross, Northeastern, Princeton, St. Lawrence, UConn, UNH, Quinnipiac, Amherst, Bowdoin, Middlebury and Trinity among others.
It’s an exciting time to play hockey at Loomis as the team is poised to make a strong run in the next several years. Leyden is dedicated to bringing in the strongest student-athletes possible and the team is comprised of players from across the country.
