Keil “Coach Keil” Ritterpusch has a passion for all things involving sports. Keil spent the last eleven years coaching field hockey in Loudoun County. He started as a rec league coach for Loudoun Field Hockey Association, then was a rec league coach for Potomac Field Hockey, where he helped to found, build from the ground up, and coach the Briar Woods High School field hockey club — before Loudoun County added varsity hockey.

In addition to rec league and varsity coaching, Keil has coached with the Metro Field Hockey Club and the Rapids Field Hockey Club and was a founding board member for the Loudoun County League.
