“What gives us value is that we think a lot alike. We value the student athlete experience, it’s very player-centric. We get the players involved in the decision-making because we are here to make them shine,” Stevens says. “It is not at all coach-centric here at the University of Connecticut Field Hockey. Trusting our student athletes and valuing the same things has been what has made our staff so successful.”
