Hannah Irving, Academic Coordinator

ACADEMIC COORDINATOR: HANNAH IRVING

Hannah graduated summa cum laude from Franklin Pierce University where she majored in Biology and minored in both Mathematics and Chemistry. She started tutoring as a high school student and continued to do so throughout her years at Franklin Pierce. Since graduating, she has been privately tutoring high school students.

Hannah began working with the Shamrocks as the team’s Math and Science tutor and continues to hold that role within the organization. As the Academic Coordinator, Hannah is also the contact person for players and parents with questions and concerns about academics. She has become an invaluable asset in helping players navigate the NCAA Eligibility Center and assisting with the college application process.


ALL TEAM MEMBERS HAVE THE FOLLOWING AVAILABLE TO THEM

  • Weekly one-on-one tutoring sessions with the team’s private tutors

  • 8 weeks of SAT/ACT test preparation with a standardized test specialist during the fall

  • Weekly monitoring of progress and performance

    • Progress reports are sent to coaching staff (and parents upon request) every weekend

    • Fall behind, and you will not play until you catch up!

  • Assistance with the college essay and application process

As a member of the Boston Shamrocks we look at your development not just as an athlete, but as a student-athlete.

You can be the most talented player in the world, but if your grades aren’t where they need to be or your NCAA mandated core requirements haven’t been met, you will end up sitting in the stands watching your friends play college hockey.

We prepare you to excel, not just on the ice, but in the classroom and life.
