My name is Melanie Cocco and I have been a part of Peters Township Field Hockey for the past 9 years. When I began playing in 2010, the sport was only offered in high school, which is where I learned the foundations of the game and became captain of the Varsity team. Post-graduation, I was asked to coach the youth program, grades 4-8. As the sport became more popular in the area, I was pulled up to lead the middle school team. After two years of coaching at the middle school level, I was invited to become the Peters Township High School JV Head Coach for the 2018 season. Entering the 2019 season, I am now the Head Coach of the Peters Township High School Field Hockey team. My top goals as a coach are to create a team that understands the importance of working together, works their hardest, and respects one another, their opponents, coaches, and referees. Coming off a victorious season as WPIAL Champions, I am very excited to see what the future of PTFH holds.
