Team Overview

Field Hockey - Varsity


The field hockey program at Portsmouth Abbey School is designed to teach our student-athletes the building blocks for success on the field, as well as in life. Through hard work, determination, and extensive training and drills, the girls on the team develop an understanding of individual ball handling skills, overall team play, as well as an appreciation for the game of field hockey. In addition, we maintain a positive and supportive attitude on the field - whether at practice or games - and are demonstrating to our student-athletes skills that will benefit them in all aspects of life.

Varsity field hockey is a member of the Eastern Independent League (EIL). EIL member schools include Bancroft School, Beaver Country Day, Berwick Academy, Concord Academy, Dana Hall School, Landmark School, Lexington Christian, Newton Country Day, Pingree School and Winsor School. We also compete against traditional rivals such as St. George's, Tabor, Southfield and Worcester Academy.
