Field Hockey

Women only

In North America, when you talk about hockey, people assume you mean ice hockey. While a global sport, field hockey is played primarily in certain regions in the US – mainly New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. There is limited competition on the West Coast and Midwest but the sport is growing in popularity throughout the country.

Field hockey can be played at more than 300 colleges and universities, but is open to female players only. There are many opportunities to find a team to suit your skills and level, from top level high schools to Division 1, 2, or 3 collegiate teams.

Field hockey study abroad

Field hockey at high school level is played mainly via school teams, offering both Junior Varsity and Varsity opportunities. However, there are a growing number of external clubs, offering everything from recreational play to targeted college-level practice, especially on the East Coast.

Field hockey is a fall sport and the high school/college competition season is short and intense, beginning at the end of August and lasting until the middle of November.

College-level field hockey is only played at 4-year colleges and universities and is governed by the NCAA. In the US there are 280 college varsity women’s field hockey teams.
