Seacoast United Field Hockey kicked off its 2021 Tournament schedule this past weekend with the Indoor Winter Bash. The event, held at The Rim Sports Complex in Hampton, NH, was tremendously successful and a great way to kick off the year. With 38 teams and hundreds of participating players, there was plenty of great play, and a lot of promise was shown for Seacoast United Field Hockey.
Director of Seacoast United Field Hockey, Sarah Michaud added, “This past weekend was the first indoor tournament we have hosted since the pandemic began last year. Overall, the tournament prep was more time consuming than normal, but all of our hard work paid off and the event was a huge success.” Michaud went on to say, “All 38 teams in attendance were fantastic with following all of the protocols and guidelines we implemented, which created a very safe and competitive environment for game play. We look forward to hosting our next tournament at the end of the month.”
Seacoast United Field Hockey will be back at The Rim on January 30-31 for the Indoor Blizzard Bash Tournament. The Field Hockey staff looks forward to building upon the success of the Winter Bash at the end of the month.

The Seacoast United Field Hockey family has made its mark known throughout New Hampshire during the Fall High School season. Many of which have recently been honored and are great representatives of Seacoast United Field Hockey.
Jeannine Turgeon (Dover High School) and Maria Armaganian (Concord High School) were voted the NH D1 Co-Players of the year. Jeannine and Maria are teammates at Seacoast United in our U19 Elite group and are both playing D1 field hockey next year. Jeannine will be attending Columbia University and Maria will be attending Northeastern University. Both of these ladies play center midfield for their high school teams and each play a very big role in those programs. We are so proud of both and we could not have asked for better representatives of Seacoast United Field Hockey.
Not to be sold short, our very own Melissa Nawn was voted the NH D1 Coach of the Year as the coach of Timberlane High School. This is Melissa’s 3rd season coaching at Timberlane High School and her 9th year with Seacoast United. This season Melissa suffered a setback early on when her team had to quarantine for 2 weeks due to COVID-19. After that they came back with a vengeance and took down the #1 seed (Winnacunnet) to make it to the quarterfinals of the state tournament. Congrats to Coach Mel on a great season!
With so many of our own achieving success this fall in their high school seasons, and we are even more excited to get our own Winter Season underway. For more of Seacoast United Field Hockey head to our club page http://www.seacoastunited.com/clubs/field-hockey-club.

These past few months have been challenging for all of us and we are so happy to be back on the field again.” Michaud went on to say, “With new the protocols and procedures in place, our number one priority is to ensure that all of the players and coaches remain safe. We are all in this together!”
