Westminster's Third Field Hockey team is a testament to the depth of the school's field hockey program. For some members of the team, this will be the gateway to field hockey. For experienced players or returning veterans, it provides an opportunity to hone skills and to contribute valuable leadership.
Third Field Hockey is all about grit, grace and fundamentals. The focus is on basic skills, conditioning, hustle, learning different positions, strategy, teamwork, game experience, confidence building, good sportsmanship and enjoying the game. Many Third team players go on in subsequent years to Second and even a few to First Field Hockey.
Third Field Hockey plays a competitive schedule, often against much larger schools, which allows players to cultivate their skills and become better, stronger athletes. The Martlets play home games on one of the many fine fields that comprise Westminster’s 35 acres of playing fields in beautiful Simsbury, Conn.
