We Love the Family Environment Mayhem Fosters

We had the pleasure of meeting Alex in the Summer of 2015. My wife and I had been at another club for 3 years. We sat with Alex in her backyard that summer to talk about her new club Mainline Mayhem. We were very impressed, but the most important part is the connection with the athlete. We set my daughter up for a one-on-one lesson with Alex. She left the lesson, and said Mom/Dad I want her as my coach.

Alex has a hands on approach with the girls, and seems to make a connection with all of them. She is fair and honest in her decision making, and is available to give the athlete feedback on how to get better. Alex is a role model for these young women. She treats them all with respect, and understands the psychology of these pre-teens and teens. Alex has hired a staff of young energetic professionals that not only know how to coach the game, but genuinely care about the girls. The coaches know how to communicate, and get the best out of every player.

As parent I look for 3 things from a club or a team. Is my daughter growing as person and teammate? Is my daughter growing as a player? And lastly and most importantly is my daughter smiling and having fun? I can honestly say that Alex and her Mainline Mayhem staff have 100% accomplished this goal. We love the club and the family environment that it fosters. The girls play as teammates and care about each other as players and people. We could not be happier with our decision.

Mayhem Develops Strong, Kind, Self-Assured Young Women

We are very happy that our daughter has chosen Mayhem as her field hockey club.  As a former Girls on the Run coach and Girl Scout Troop leader I was excited to find a field hockey club that believes in developing strong, kind, self assured young women.  The Mayhem teams are competitive with other clubs, but maintain an attitude of good sportsmanship that is often lost at the club level.    Mayhem players win games while maintaining a respect for themselves and the other team’s players and coaches.  We are thankful that Mayhem has not only developed our daughter’s athletic skills, but also provided an opportunity for her to make great friends and learn how to live a balanced life of fun and hard work.  Combine these benefits with the convenient practice locations, online and mail payment options and frequent email/website communications and you quickly learn that Mayhem is the stress free option for busy parents juggling multiple schedules.

The Coaching Staff is Outstanding

My daughter has loved her experience with Mayhem this past year.  The coaching staff is outstanding and works with each girl’s strengths and weaknesses.  It is a positive learning experience with a ton of sweat and fun. The girls on the teams work well together and are always there to lift one another up….both on the field and off.  I am looking forward to watching my daughter grow with Mayhem.

Mayhem is one of the best, most encouraging teams I have ever played for!

I began playing for Mainline Mayhem over a year ago, taking clinics and later taking private lessons with Alex. My goal was to make my high school field hockey team as a freshman, and with the help and training of head coach Alex McMahan, I achieved this goal. Alex has become my favorite coach as well as an incredible role model for me to look up to. This past fall I participated in Mayhem’s indoor field hockey league. I practiced hard with the coaching staff and participated in multiple tournaments where my mentors were always standing by, giving each one of us feedback both good and bad. Mainline Mayhem is one of the best, most encouraging teams I have ever played for, and I am so happy that I am a part of it.

By Far the Best Coach

Alex McMahan is by far the best coach my daughter has had the pleasure to work with these past few years.  Alex and the coaches at Mayhem not only work to teach the girls skills needed on the field but they build confidence by positive reinforcement and genuine interest in the development of each and every player from an athletic and emotional standpoint.  By having such a positive influence in my daughters life, she has been able to succeed not only with Field Hockey but with other sports.  I am so grateful for the time Alex has spent developing this incredible field hockey program that really has been life changing for my daughter.  Feeling good, confident and happy are tools that help our daughters navigate the challenging teenage years and Alex’s support has been a big part of these traits my daughter carries with her.

An Amazing Staff

My daughter began playing with Mayhem Field Hockey in February 2015; after spending 3 seasons with another local club. Our experiences with Mayhem have been nothing but outstanding. Coach Alex has put together an amazing staff. From private lessons to small group training to team practices the focus is always on developing the total player. I have watched my daughter grow in an environment that promotes player development rather than win at any cost. She has learned how to be a confident field hockey player, team member and leader. My daughter’s goal has always been to play at the college level. Playing field hockey for Mayhem has been an incredibly positive experience for my daughter and she now believes that her college playing dream will be a reality.

The Coaches are Very Nurturing and Use Positive Reinforcement with the Girls

We love Mainline Mayhem!  I cannot express how incredible Alex is as a coach, mentor, club owner and person.  We started with MLFHC in the fall and also played through the winter. We just finished our indoor season with a 2nd place win at the NIT!!!  My daughter has learned so much since starting at Mayhem. She has developed tremendously as a player and has forged lifelong friendships with her team members. This was only her 2nd year playing field hockey and Alex and her awesome coaching staff have taught her so much in such a short time. All of her coaches are amazing field hockey players and are also very nurturing and use positive reinforcement with the girls.  To sum it up, Mainline Mayhem is a top notch organization where your daughter will receive awesome coaching in a positive and encouraging environment.  We couldn’t be any happier!  Go Mayhem!

Supportive and Positive, yet Tough and Effective Coaching

Mayhem completely changed my attitude toward hockey! The environment makes me really want to go to practice each week, with supportive and positive yet tough and effective coaching.

The Coaches Don’t Yell at You for Mistakes

Mayhem has been an incredible experience not only because of the coaching but with the environment each team creates. The coaches don’t yell at you for mistakes, they use mistakes as an opportunity to teach to new skills. Also I benefited from being coached by such experienced players.

Mayhem is Something I Look Forward to Every Weekend

I have been playing field hockey for a long time, and I have never found a club as great as Mayhem. The coaches are great, and I have learned so much already. This is my first season playing for Mayhem and my field hockey skills have already improved so much. I’m an offender and Mayhem has helped me so much with learning how to take shots and score more goals. Mayhem is something I look forward to doing every weekend. I know I’ll be doing Mayhem for a long time.

Confidence Has Increased Drastically

Our daughter’s first involvement with MLFHC was attending a few clinics last spring/summer.  She then started taking individual lessons with Coach Alex this winter.  Her level of play and confidence have increased drastically.  The coaching style and constant positive atmosphere worked amazingly well and now my daughter will be moving to the spring clinics and one of the Mayhem teams.  We’re very fortunate to have found MLFHC as it fits the higher level of play and positive coaching that our daughter thrives on. Keep up the great work!

Mayhem is an elite field hockey program which focuses on the whole athlete.  Their philosophy cultivates girls with not only developing and improving game skills but it fosters playing at a higher level through positive attitude, dedication, and integrity. Alex and the coaches are true mentors… they have a mutual respect for the girls and a relatability to which the girls really respond.  We are fortunate to have our daughter participate in the Mayhem program!

Alex McMahan is PRESENT

The best way to describe Alex McMahan is present.  She is at every practice, tournament and, game she can possibly attend. It is common to see Alex running from game to game so she can be there for the girls. She has a passion for the sport and the girls as individuals. My daughter picks up on that and plays harder, is learning and having fun while doing it. Moving my daughter to MLFHC was the best decision we as a family made.

They motivate me to better than I was yesterday

I really like the atmosphere that surrounds me when I’m playing. It is always very positive and energetic. The coaching is good and they motivate me to be better than I was yesterday or the day before. They taught me how to perfect my skills and use them during games. I’m glad that I found the team. The girls that I play with are really talented and hard workers.   I, along with many of the other girls, are going to have and make many more memories together. I can see myself playing with these same girls for a very long time. I look forward to making many more memories. Overall the team is great and so is the environment. ☺

I can’t explain how much hockey has changed my life for the better.

Mayhem has changed my life in such a positive way. As has club has flourished I as a player have too. I love going to practices even if I’m tired. I can’t explain how much hockey has changed my life for the better. Mayhem is accepting of my loud personality and I can feel that being accepted helps with on and off the field. I feel that mayhem has prepared me for what lay ahead in hockey and in life. The positive coaching has brought so much into Mayhem and it makes a massive difference. In addition, I find myself in a constant state of trying new skills and I have so many in my handbook now I have a lot of thanking to do for Mayhem making me the player I am.

Always Learning New Things

As the club has flourished, the positive attitude and coaching have sprouted my growth as well. I’m always learning new things and constantly working on skills rather then sitting on the couch watching Netflix. I can be myself and am accepted for my loud personality. I am always looking forward to more field hockey, thanks to Mayhem.
