About Our Coaches

Jennifer Foster

Jennifer Foster is in her tenth year as head field hockey coach and assistant compliance coordinator at Salve Regina University. She also was the head women’s lacrosse coach for eight seasons.

Foster has led Salve Regina to back-to-back ECAC appearances in 2104 and 2015. Salve Regina Field Hockey had a record breaking 2014 season. Finishing the season 14-8, the program earned its first ever ECAC postseason bid. The team also qualified for the Commonwealth Coast Conference tournament for the first time since 2009 and tied a school record for wins (14) while going undefeated in non-conference play. Off the field, the Seahawks have enjoyed success as well. In 2013 the team earned its sixth consecutive National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Academic Team Award.

Foster was selected to attend the NCAA Women Coaches Academy in 2008, where she had the opportunity to interact with other women collegiate coaches and administrators at the Division I, II and III level while developing advanced perspective and skills in the fundamentals of coaching. In May of 2010, she completed the Dimension 2 training for the NCAA Women Coaches Academy. She is a current member of the Alliance of Women Coaches. Foster began her collegiate career at Nichols College, where she garnered CCC Rookie of the Year honors after finishing third in both goals and points for the Bison. A National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III Academic Team selection at NC, Foster then transferred to and graduated from Bryant College in 2004. She helped the Bulldogs advance to the NCAA Division II Final Four in 2002 and 2003. For her efforts, Foster earned NFHCA Division II Academic Team and Northeast 10 Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll Gold Scholar accolades each of her three years in Smithfield (2001-03).

Prior to her arrival at Salve Regina, Foster worked with PUMA North America, Inc., as a customer service representative and training specialist, where her performance resulted in promotions for several of her trainees. She also worked with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats minor league baseball club, where she organized clinics and coordinated players, coaches, and over 800 participants. She is currently the Director of the Revolution Field Hockey Camp held at Salve Regina University.

Field Hockey Camps - Field Hockey Review Sonia H. - Player

I was afraid the whole camp was going to feel like just some easy vacation where we sat around and got lectured or watched training videos. Nope! It felt like a real adventure, even though we were learning the whole time.

The food was good. The coaches were awesome! We worked hard, but it was so much fun and I already want to go back.
