Field Hockey

UCSB Club Field Hockey is becoming increasingly popular among UCSB students. It is a fun and competitive sport. The team includes players who have 10 years of experience and others who are just beginning. In the past four years, UCSB Field Hockey has won 1st place twice in the Western Collegiate Field Hockey Conference (WCFHC). In 2015 and 2014, the team placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively. The season runs from September to late November. Practices start Friday the 23rd of September! Freshmen are encouraged to come and meet returning players at the Fun and Fitness Festival. The team has games on most weekends in fall and travel as far as San Diego. In the spring, the team practices for the Cal Cup tournament. Team bonding is a huge part of the field hockey experience. Joining the field hockey team will make your UCSB experience tons of fun and is a great way to competitively play a sport and make new friends!
