What further opportunities are available?
Columbus has two field hockey clubs, Coyotes and Field Hockey Life. Athletes can join to improve skills and have the opportunity to compete nationally.
Athletes can also attend summer camps, spring clinics or participate in USA Field Hockey’s Futures program.
Many colleges, including Ohio State, offer field hockey at the D1, D2, and D3 varsity or club level (or both).
Founded in 2005, Hilliard Lynx Field Hockey provides girls in grades 5 through 12 the opportunity to build physical skills, teamwork, and lasting friendships.
Hilliard Lynx fields both high school and middle school teams. The club also hosts open events to introduce kids of all ages to the sport.
Hilliard Lynx is comprised of athletes from schools in Hilliard, OH. Field hockey is not a school sport in Hilliard (yet) but Lynx teams play other school teams. The club is run by Hilliard Lynx Boosters, the players’ parents.
Lynx fosters a positive team environment and sports experience for young women from 6th grade to high school. Varsity and JV practice together. Middle and High School teams interact at summer practices, scrimmages and social events. And all players work together at car washes and other events to raise funds for team operations.
Field hockey is a fall sport. It is a great off- season option for lacrosse, softball, basketball and track. It's also an alternative for soccer players who want more playing time.
Who Plays Lynx Hockey?
Any young woman in the Hilliard City School District in Grades 6 -12 is eligible to join a team. All public, private and home school students are welcome.
