A Refreshing Look At Field Hockey

I like the looks of this REBLOG site.

It is pretty MUCH FUN

Here is a quote from the page, addressing the goggle issue:
come-along-pondy asked: You know how goggles are mandatory for high school girls now? Well lately, we've been getting a rise in hand/finger injuries and my coach has a theory that the goggles are affecting the way that we hold our sticks because of depth perception (We don't use lacrosse goggles). I have broken my hand in 3 places this season, and it's only been 1 month. A friend of mine and a girl I know broke fingers this week, a girl I played travel with dislocated her finger. Have you or anyone else noticed this?
Huh, that’s interesting… I have been hit in the hand/fingers a few times along with my teammates, but I guess it never seemed unusual. But there could be something to it. The goggle rule is so ridiculous.

Let Boys Play, Too

Boys Should Be Encouraged To Play Field Hockey

Every sport or activity that is growing encourages
non-gender specific participation. Hockey, in its other forms,
promotes healthy activity and excitement for all members of the family,
young and old.

End of Another Season

 We find ourselves at the terminus of another field hockey season.
Each team, no matter what their record during September, has the opportunity to be reborn into the role of ultimate champion; to erase a miserable year or to continue their streak.  

It is Hammer Time.  Two teams both come to the pitch swinging their metaphorical hammers. One team needs to pound in one more nail than the other, to prevail.


 All hail the 2011 Champions.
