ABOUT THE TEAM
The field hockey program at SCH is deeply rooted in tradition. We believe in building the strength of our players’ character through teamwork, emphasizing the value of a strong work ethic, demonstrating sportsmanship, and fostering a positive and supportive environment for the team.
Both the varsity and JV teams focus on mastering fundamental skills while also building and developing more advanced skills and strategies for play. Some players spend time off season attending summer camps and clinics. In addition, some players are on travel and premier teams outside of school.
During the season, we face strong competition with great Inter-Ac League opponents, such as Agnes Irwin, Episcopal, and Notre Dame, and we expect to consistently build upon our previous achievements and continue to be a competitive contender in our league.
