Adult Pick up field hockey
This may be a bit daunting for younger players, but more skilled players, particularly those on Varsity can benefit from playing with skilled adults. It is an excellent way to build confidence, play in the off season with low commitment, and get tips from high level players and coaches. There are opportunities here in Western Mass which are usually posted on the Western MA Field Hockey Facebook Page. If you are looking for more consistent play options, the Minuteman Field Hockey Club in Boston is a great option.
