Our team started out
in spring 2004. A goalkeeper from Pennsylvania starving for more playing time
posted on the internet an add for anyone wanting to play field hockey should
contact Susan. Another lover of field hockey and an ex-national player living
in Clearwater got together with Susan and some Lacrosse players in Fish Hawk
in Tampa on one Sunday evening. This union between Susan and Kathleen seeked
help from USFHA. Dean Nakamura a member of USFHA Development forwarded the
email address of one Jeff Grosvenor ex-President of North East Field Hockey
Association and ex-Umpiring Chair person of New Atlantic Section who just
migrated to Tampa with his job at JPMorgan Chase. Jeff along with Charles
Joseph and Ravi Kullar another JPMorgan migration candidate journeyed out to
Fish Hawk where in very thick grass that hungry goalkeeper had three men take
shots at her without proper protective gear on. The height of the grass
disappointed everyone, the following Sunday Jeff returned to Fish Hawk with
Susan, a few Lacrosse players and Kathleen. This Sunday after some drills in
the thick grass Susan, Jeff, and Kathie decided to search for other
facilities. Since this was in the fall of 2003 and the holidays were upon us
nothing was accomplished for the rest of that year. In early spring Jeff
emailed Susan to try and get things going in 2004. Susan was away with her job
and she forwarded Kathie’s’ email address. Kathie and Jeff got together
and thanks to Kathie a meeting with Bob Carpenter Director of Parks in
Clearwater was arranged and the rest is history.
We all play together
regardless of age, hockey skills or fitness level. The one important thing we
have in common is: We are all crazy about hockey. Field hockey is the most fun sport and it is highly addictive.
Our emphasis lies on having fun together, That's why fieldhockey is also a
great sport for the whole family. Or were else could you play on the same team
as your kids/parents?
We are happy to
provide sticks if you want to try it yourself. Join us Saturday 10 am. Check contact for the directions to the field.
