After leading Team USA to the gold medal in the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Women's Championship, Katey Stone will remain the team's head coach through the 2011-12 season.
Stone is also the head coach of Harvard University's women's ice hockey program.
"With Katey continuing to lead our team through 2011-12, she will gain the opportunity to both leverage and build on all of the work that she and our players invested this past season," Reagan Carey, director of women's hockey for USA Hockey, said in a statement. "She is dedicated to maximizing the potential of our players and we are eager to see the continued results of her strong efforts."
In 2010-11, Stone led Team USA to a second-place finish at the 2010 Women's Four Nations Cup and its third consecutive world title.
Stone has a 356-155-31 record in 17 seasons with the Crimson and is the winningest coach in Harvard's women's hockey history.
USA Hockey will host 26 of the top female hockey players at a development camp from June 11-17. All 21 members of the team that won gold at the 2011 world championships will be in Colorado Springs, Colo., for the camp. In addition, five players from the preliminary roster for the world championship will be there.
