About Our Coaches

Kristen McCann

Kristen competed with the U.S. National Field Hockey Team from 2000-04. During that stretch, she earned 74 International caps while tallying 20 goals. She competed in the 10th World Cup in Perth, Australia, helping the U.S. to a top 10 finish. Kristen also earned a silver medal on the 2003 Pan American Games team.


During her playing career at UNC, Kristen earned All-American honors, Academic All-American honors, ACC Player of the Year and 2 NCAA National Championships. She guided UNC to a national runner up finish in 2000 and was named the Tag-Heuer Athlete of the year in 2001.  She was named to the ACC 50th Anniversary team in 2002 after scoring 59 career goals for UNC.


Kristen earned her bachelor's degree in psychology from North Carolina in 2001. In May of 2007, she completed her Masters in Public Policy from William & Mary. Kristen spent 3 years as the Assistant Coach at William & Mary before starting Focus.

Alan Good

When it comes to coaching philosophies, Focus assistant club director and coaching director Alan Good has a simple idea: to make himself redundant.

The 31-year-old Irishman, who left his native land to join Focus in 2017, says he strives to create decision-makers and create an environment where problems are set for players, rather than solved for them.

Alan credits his approach to being introduced to the TGFU (teaching games for understanding) in 2014, the values of which he now espouses as a USA Field Hockey coach educator.

A multi-sport athlete during his teens, with rugby, soccer and tennis at the forefront, Alan came late to field hockey in 2008 at 22 years old, when he was asked to write about the sport in his then-job as a national newspaper reporter: "I figured that if I was going to write about it, I should learn how to play it."

That began a love affair with the sport that saw him start Southern Fried Hockey, one of Ireland's most successful camp companies, as well as taking voluntary roles on Munster Hockey's management committee and as an umpire of high-level Division 1 games.

He eventually broke away from journalism to become one of the country's few full-time hockey coaches in 2013, building extensive experience at schools, club and adult levels. Numerous titles were won along the way, but Alan's clearest memories are of the encounters that changed him as a coach.

Having coached in both the developmental and high performance realms of the game in Ireland, Alan says he enjoys the Focus setup where there is a balance of both.
