Elizabeth LeydenHead Coach
Liz Yale Leyden became head girls ice hockey coach and an economics teacher at Loomis Chaffee in 2009 after a three-year stint as head hockey coach at Hebron Academy in Hebron, Maine. Prior to Hebron, Leyden was a four-year letter-winner for Middlebury College during the 2003–2006 seasons. Her team won the NCAA Division III national championship in 2004, 2005, and 2006 and the NESCAC league championship in 2003, 2005, and 2006. Leyden scored the game-winning goal in the 2004 national championship game, served as an assistant captain her senior season, and was a 2006 National Scholar Athlete as well as a 2006 NESCAC Winter All-Academic Selection.
An active member of the hockey community, Coach Leyden is a USA Hockey Level IV-certified coach. She is routinely involved in USA Hockey, coaching at USA Hockey National Development Camps and in New England Yankee Conference Festivals. She has coached at several other camps in the summers as well. In 2011 and in 2016 she was recognized with the Vincent J. Reilly Coach of the Year Sportsmanship Award from the Connecticut Chapter of NIHOA.
In her time at Loomis Chaffee, Liz has coached many future Division I and III student-athletes and takes pride in developing and supporting student-athletes through their high school careers and onto their college careers. She believes that the balance between academics and athletics is crucial to each girl’s success. In the rink Coach Leyden’s focus on both individual skill and team development guides her program, and her passion for the game is infectious. She believes that growth comes from each player practicing and playing to her full potential each day, and thus practices are intentionally designed to be up-tempo and competitive. Her team plays an aggressive style of hockey in which speed, skill, good decision-making, teamwork, and grit are all emphasized.
In addition to coaching hockey and teaching, Liz is the dorm head of Harman Hall, where she lives with her husband, Jake, dean of students of the Class of 2020, and their three children, Maddie, Ben, and Ellie.
