About Our Coaches

Jesse Duke

Jesse Duke of Green Lane, Pa., who is a 2008 Olympian and 2011 Pan American Games field hockey gold medalist, announced her retirement from the U.S. Women’s National Field Hockey Team in February ‘13. Jesse made her debut on the National Team in 2008 and represented the U.S. in 99 international competitions throughout her stellar career. Jesse was a NCAA Division I Champion in 2007 and the youngest member of the 2008 U.S. Women’s Olympic Field Hockey Team that finished eighth in Beijing, China. Jesse was also a member of the 2011 Pan American Games Team that made history by upsetting the then No. 1 world ranked team Argentina and their spotless record in the Pan American Games with a score of 4 – 2. In late 2010, following a disappointing result at the World Cup Qualifier, Jesse took a brief hiatus from field hockey and considered retirement. She spent a year away from the sport, coaching at her alma mater, the University of North Carolina and applying for graduate schools. But deep down, Jesse had a gut feeling she was not ready to call it quits and returned to the National Team in May 2011. She competed in her final series wearing the red, white and blue in October 2012 at Champions Challenge I in Dublin, Ireland where the U.S. finished runners up to Australia. Gey graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008 with a Communications Degree in Organization and Management. As part of the Tar Heel team, she was a first team All-American and All-ACC in 2007. She was voted Most Valuable Player by team mates and the coaching staff in 2006 and was part of the 2004 and 2007 ACC Champion Team.

Do you hold clinics for coaches too? After seeing what a difference you made with just one of my players, I’m curious how far you can take it.
