A note from Kevin:

“My family and friends would describe my coaching style as passionate. I like to have fun and make jokes but I take the game seriously and expect the best from my players. Field Hockey in Belgium was not just a sport, it was also part of our culture. We spent entire days at the club playing, coaching, socializing and cheering on the other teams. I still think, breath and love field hockey. Although I am retired from the game as a player, my connection is now through the athletes I coach and when I can I still pick up my stick and join in on a practice.”
