About Our Coaches

Eileen OReilly

Eileen O’Reilly completed her second season with the Red Hawks in 2014 and was named the interim head coach in March 2015. O'Reilly's primary focus is on offensive strategies and player development and also manages team operations, specifically game film analysis and tape exchange. O’Reilly, who was named Associate Head Coach in January 2015, came to Montclair State following two successful seasons as Manhattanville College. During her second season with the Valiants, O'Reilly helped guide the unit to an overall record of 11-8, including a stretch of the season that saw Manhattanville win six-straight contests, three straight coming in overtime. Under her guidance, the Valiants also produced its first-ever All-American, as Amanda DeChent was named to the NFHCA All-America first team. In her first season at Manhattanville, the squad tied the best nine-game start in program history after winning eight of the season's first nine games and also reached the Freedom Conference Tournament for the first time in six years as the fourth seed.

O’Reilly arrived at Manhattanville after a decorated four-year career on the field hockey field at Franklin & Marshall College, where she was a four-year starter and senior captain for the Diplomats. She was named to the NFHCA All-South Region and All-Centennial Conference first team as a senior after scoring nine goals with 11 assists for a career-high 29 points, following up an All-Conference second-team honor in 2009. She finished her career as the school’s all-time leader in assists (35) and game-winning goals (eight), while also ranking fifth in points (95) and ninth in goals (30). Off the field, O’Reilly was a four-time NFHCA and Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll honoree and the 2011 recipient of the Karvasales Award, which is given to a Franklin & Marshall female senior athlete with cumulative outstanding athletic achievements over a four-year period. In addition, she was selected as the Centennial Conference’s nominee for the 2011 NCAA Woman of the Year Award and participated in the conference’s 2011 Snell-Shillingford coaching symposium. In the spring of her senior year at F&M, O’Reilly served as a student assistant field hockey coach at her alma mater, coordinating drills, providing individual feedback to players, and assisting in all aspects of practice. O’Reilly graduated from Franklin & Marshall in May 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and American Studies, graduating magna cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. A native of Briarcliff, NY, O’Reilly also earned her master’s degree at Manhattanville in Education.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Martha B. - Parent

We traveled from another state to attend this camp so our daughter could get exposure to a different group of players and coaches. We have had good experiences Revolution camps in the past and this camp was no exception. Very well run camp.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Maxine Z. - Mom

We really appreciated the individual attention the coaches gave to our daughter. They really took the time to go over what she needs to work on to improve her game. She asked to bring her stick on our family vacation; just to be sure she is ready for pre-season a couple of weeks away.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Phoebe C. - Camper

I had such a good time at camp. The coaches were great, and so was the food. We had so much fun staying in the dorms like we were in college.
