Sydney Supica

Supica joined the Brown staff in the Spring of 2022 and enters her first season with the program later this fall.

“I am very excited to collaborate with Sydney again to help this team grow and achieve their goals,” said Broady. “Syd was an outstanding defender in the Big Ten conference and earned Regional All-American recognition twice in her career. Her expertise will help our backfield gain awareness and confidence.

Although Syd brings a wealth of coaching and playing experience, I am most excited to have her on board because of her exceptional character,” Broady continued. “We will be growing and building this program in a new way, which will require work and investment from our team members. Syd’s greatest strength is challenging student-athletes while fully supporting them in their development as players and as people.”

Supica spent just over two years in her most recent role in Colorado and was named the recipient of the 2021 NFHCA Junior Hockey Award after leading an impressive expansion of the Denver club’s reach in her tenure.

In addition to her role with the Denver Field Hockey Club, Supica served as head coach of the Cherry Creek High School squad in the 2021 season, helping multiple student-athletes earn postseason honors while continuing to grow the game in a non-traditional area.

Prior to her time in Colorado, Supica served as an assistant under Broady at UC Davis and helped in all aspects of coaching and recruiting. Supica’s on-field focus was the defense and corner defense unit.

Supica is a USA Field Hockey Level 2 Certified Coach and has experience in several other roles, including coaching experience with In-The-Zone Field Hockey and the USA Field Hockey program.

The Ann Arbor, Michigan native was a four-year standout defender at Indiana University. The 2016 graduate was a three-time Second Team All-Region and a three-year Second Team All-Big Ten selection (2013-15). Supica is the program record-holder in career defensive saves and played in all 70 games in her career, starting 66 of them.
