NOTE FROM HEAD COACH ASHLEY THOMPSON LOFTIS:
 
Dear AHS Parents and Players,
 
Welcome to the 2018 Arapahoe High School Warriors Fall Field Hockey Season! My coaching staff and I are excited for the upcoming season and we look forward to coaching you and getting to know you! Our coaching staff includes myself as the head coach and assistant coaches Elise Landau, Becca Congel, and Jenna Harris. All of our coaches have many years of field hockey playing and coaching experience and have all played NCAA field hockey.
 
There has been some concern regarding the start date of our season. Our field hockey program will start official tryouts on Monday, August 13th.  This is the date which CHSAA had originally planned as the official start to fall sports (set in the spring). As of early June, CHSAA changed the start date to August 6th, which conflicted with how many families had planned their summer.  
 
In all fairness to every athlete, I have decided to keep our start date as August 13th, so that all athletes can attend tryouts.  (many other programs in the state are  honoring the original start date.) 
 
QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE:
 
Will this give us a disadvantage? NO
Will we still be able to compete on the first competition/will we fulfill the necessary amount of practice days prior to our first competition? YES
Is it mandatory to attend any training/camps prior to the 13th? NO
Will you be assessed/evaluated as an AHS player prior to the 13th? NO
 
I hope this gives you some clarity as to our start date and the reasons behind my decision.  Please feel free to contact me or our Athletic department with any questions or concerns. 
 
Thank you and GO WARRIORS!
 
Coach Ashley

Ashley was born and raised in Virginia, where she played field hockey, lacrosse and soccer.  She continued to play at the collegiate level (’92-’93, Mary Baldwin College, D-III Field Hockey and Lacrosse; ’93-’96, Virginia Commonwealth University, D-I Field Hockey and Club Soccer). Since settling in Denver in 1997, Ashley has been coaching (and playing) field hockey and lacrosse.  She has played in seven Vail Shootout tournaments (’97, ’98, ’03, ’04, ’05, ’12, ’13) and traveled with club field hockey teams (as a player) all over the US.


Ashley’s love for sports eventually led her to coaching.  She was the Varsity Field Hockey Coach at Cherry Creek High School from 2001-2014. (State Champions 2002, 2007; State Runner-up 2001, 2003, 2013; 14 Playoff Appearances; Colorado Coach of the Year 2002. In addition, Ashley coached the Cherry Creek Varsity 2 Lacrosse team for many of those 14 years.

Prior to the development of Club Field Hockey teams, Ashley and her colleagues coordinated and coached teams to travel to recruiting tournaments, exposing Colorado field hockey players to a higher level of play. Ashley coaches for the Aurora Field Hockey Club and started their middle school team in 2016. She also helps the advanced players in the recruitment process.

Ashley is very excited to be part of our young program at AHS, to share her passion for field hockey, and looks forward to the growth and development of the players and the program.

Please give a warm Warrior welcome to Ashley Thompson Loftis!
