What her coaches saw about her: “I honestly love Alyson more and more each time I coach her and am around her.  She is a fun loving, hard working, and care free athlete who is a blast to coach and is ALWAYS smiling!  Alyson contributed a great deal in our attacking midfield at the National Field Hockey Festival.  Every time she came off the field she was open to know how to become a stronger attacker and how to defend the sideline better.  This positive attitude and coach ability are the things that I absolutely love most about her.  I am very happy Alyson is a part of Aim and I can’t wait to see where the world takes her.  We might even see her at Sea World one of these days!!” -Julie Janes, Coach
