April 2019

Seacoast United Field Hockey has made a name for itself in the past decade as being one of the largest and most competitive clubs in the northeast region of the United States. This can be attributed to their repeat appearances at the National Indoor Tournament and the National Club Championships for all three qualifying age groups (U14, U16, and U19). As amazing as these experiences have been, and the growth of the club has been exponential, there’s a new triumph that excites the staff for the end of the 2018 season. The club is graduating 39 seniors to 31 colleges, with 33 players going on to compete at the divisional level. With this, Seacoast United graduates the largest class in program history, and begins its quest to grow stronger on both the developmental and administrative levels. 

Club Director Sarah Michaud states, “Since coming on board as the director in 2014, we have reached a point where the depth of our program is proving stronger and more talented than ever. Having 39 seniors graduate from our program is amazing, and all of them have an extremely bright and promising future. We have been unbelievably fortunate to utilize a number of facilities, surfaces, and coaches to train for about 75% of the year and increase the skills of our kids. We have been able to travel to amazing locations, such as the training facility for the United States National Team and internationally in England.  It has been phenomenal to watch our program blossom.”
