Travel Team Overview
The Hammers Field Hockey Club is an elite club organization that fields competitive travel teams for Girls from U10 to U19 (Ages 7-19).
We believe that field hockey is an extension of the classroom – it is not only a sport, but it’s a lifestyle of character building, team effort, and passion. Hammers FH provides an innovative atmosphere designed to train and support while building character and positive traits that will last a life time.
Hammers FH endeavors to develop the complete student-athlete. We emphasize Character, Integrity and Hard Work while developing the best field hockey player that each individual can be. Our focus is to develop an athlete to compete at a high level while developing a person for life.
Girls can be invited to the Hammers Travel Program by registering for evaluations as well as receiving a personal invite or a recommendation from coaches in the area (including those on our staff).
Tryouts are held each season and separate tryouts may be held for high/national level & recruiting events. All team selections are made by the coaches. Those who are invited to the travel program have the opportunity to benefit from numerous high level training opportunities during the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer seasons.
