How long have you been playing field hockey?

“This is my fourth year of field hockey.”

What do you do to prepare for a game?

What position do you play?

What do you think more people should know about field hockey?

“I think more people should know that field hockey exists. Anyone is welcome to play on our team, including people from different schools. There’s nothing specific about it that makes it stand out, but the combination of tricky rules and challenging technique makes it a very fun sport.”
