Koa Sports


Name: Lindsay Gippe

What does Shaping Kids’ Lives Through Sports mean to you?: 
“I was lucky to be given 12 years of field hockey experience from amazing coaches that shaped my life
and being a coach gives me the opportunity to give back to my players and create an impact on their
lives through sports. I want to give my players the best experience possible that they can
look back on and potentially think about becoming coaches themselves!”

Playing Experience:
Started playing field hockey in the 6th grade and played all the way to 12th grade on varsity.
