Heather Farrell joined St. Paul’s School in the fall of 2011 as associate director of admission and head coach of the girls hockey team. In just seven seasons, we have amassed a record of 137-36-12, making the New England tournament for six straight seasons, winning our Holiday Tournament each year, a Harrington Invitational Finalist, and a New England Championship title in 2015.
Previously, Farrell spent four years as a coach at Bemidji State University, where she led the defense and the penalty-killing units. She also ran Bemidji's strength and conditioning program, served as travel coordinator, and was an academic advisor.
After receiving a B.S. in coaching and sport performance from The Ohio State University, Farrell began her career as assistant hockey coach and student-athlete mentor at Bowdoin College. The Canadian gained a great deal of experience during her two years with the Polar Bears, including a stint as interim head coach, where she led the team to the NESCAC semi-finals.
In 2015, Farrell’s alma mater, the Pomfret School, inducted her into Alumni Association Athletic Hall of Fame, in recognition of her outstanding contributions to women’s ice hockey.
