The boys’ lacrosse team plays their home games on the Hoffman Turf Field and is equipped with an automatic Hudl camera that can record and live stream practices and games. Training on the field is about learning the game, improving one’s skill and speed, and understanding the success that comes with teamwork and collaboration. Squaring off against squads in the competitive FAA and NEPSAC, the program boasts an extraordinary ten New England championships, most recently in 1999.
Coach Hild believes in values-based coaching, an understanding that the tools learned in practice and on the field can help a player through adversity in life. These lessons build character and allow you to face headwinds with fortitude.
“To be successful on the field and in life, you have to learn to work together as a team with various personalities,” he said. “If you just have a single-minded focus on yourself, it’s tough to succeed as a team.”
Coach looks for players with a positive attitude and a good work ethic. Whether or not a player has had a bad day, he expects his player to tap his inner reserve to motivate themselves and their teammates and give it their total effort.

A 1980 graduate of the school, David is entering his 30th year on the KO faculty and 39th year as a private secondary school teacher/coach/advisor. He’s taught all levels of English, coached football and lacrosse, and served as Dean of Students or as a Form Dean almost every year he’s been at KO. He teaches because he “loves working with kids,” and trying to instill positivity into their KO experience.” He’s shared his classroom daily since the onset of Covid with Cali, his golden retriever.
When not at school, he enjoys reading, running, paddleboarding, cheering on the Red Sox and spending time with his wife, two sons (both KO graduates), and grandchildren. He also helps his wife, Susan, in the running of Camp Merriwood, a girls’ summer camp in Orford, New Hampshire, which hosts KO’s Form 3 Trip each September.
