About Our Team!
Our Mission: To provide an outlet for co-ed athletes to participate in the competitive sport of field hockey with an emphasis on teamwork, athletic ability, and dedication.
General Information: Our regular season starts on the second week of September and ends in November with the National Tournament. We usually play anywhere from 3-5 tournaments in the season, one of which is hosted here at JMU. Teams for the tournaments are selected by player's practice attendance, attitude, devotion, motivation, and focus.
We also have a Spring season that starts at the beginning of March and continues until mid April. This season is primarily to keep players in shape and to have fun. We usually attend 1 - 2 tournaments in the Spring.
We participate in the National Field Hockey League with over 100 other colleges, specifically the Mason Dixon Division. Almost every year we qualify for the National Field Hockey Tournament located at the Virginia Beach Sports Complex, Virginia Beach, VA.
Dues: Our dues are typically around $200 for the whole year. These dues are used to completely cover tournament fees, travel expenses, hotels, equipment, and many other expenses.
Practices: We require all members to attend practice, participate in community service, and help fundraise for the team. We take these requirements seriously and expect all members to adhere to them.
We practice four days per week. All practices are located on the field hockey and track complex by ISAT and Rose Library. We practice Monday through Thursday nights for two hours each night. All practices involve physical training, individual skill work, team drills, and scrimmaging.
