Outdoor Travel Teams

Program Overview

Travel Team is for players who are serious about playing field hockey at a very competitive level and who may have the desire to play as a college athlete. They are able and willing to organize their schedules to make multiple practices during the winter, spring and summer. In the winter they train 1-2 days per week. In the spring they train two days per week on filled turf for the outdoor game. And in the summer they train one day per week outdoor on filled turf.  In addition to training they are expected to attend all the scheduled tournaments. Players who participate in indoor travel will see 1-2 additional practices per week from November to February.

Spring/Summer

2024 Travel Teams will train on Sundays and Tuesdays this Spring/Summer. Dates and times subject to change.
