UCSB Club Field Hockey is a competitive, co-ed, and student-led team. We compete in the Western Collegiate Conference and play against UC San Diego, USC, and Claremont McKenna in regular league play for the southern division. In the fall, we practice 4-5 days a week and have weight-lifting practices during the winter and spring! Team bonding is a large part of the field hockey experience, as we fundraise, support other club sports events, and even volunteer with our team! The team is extremely proud of their latest achievement, coming in 2nd place in the Western Collegiate Field Hockey Conference tournament. In 2015 and 2014, the team placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Freshmen or anyone interested in joining the team are encouraged to come and meet returning players at the Fun and Fitness Festival. Joining the field hockey team will make your UCSB experience tons of fun and is a great way to competitively play a sport and make new friends!
