Michigan in Field Hockey Motion

by Erica Reilly, Michigan State Chapter Board Member

Field hockey in Michigan is on the move! For the past year, and since its inception, the Michigan State Chapter of USA Field Hockey has had boots on the ground working towards growing the game in the state.

The chapter has been busy hosting Discover Field Hockey Clinics for 5-17 year olds, and has more clinics on tap for the spring. Two of the clinics have been run in areas of the state where there is little to no field hockey. One key target region is Lansing, which will geographically connect programming on the west side of the state, with the east side of Michigan. Nearby in East Lansing, Division I field hockey is played at Michigan State University.
