Club Tryouts

If you are interested in playing competitive field hockey throughout the year and increasing your skill level, we highly recommend that you tryout for club field hockey.

The club that Newport Harbor Field Hockey recommends is Mulligan, run by Assistant Varsity Coach Judy Schaefer and the Umpire Assigner for our league, Debbie Custer. Their club is a visionary Field Hockey Academy designed to cultivate all levels of hockey.  Their mission is to provide athletes who have ability, desire and commitment to play at the highest level. Their designed method is to improve all athletes’ technical and tactical ability. They develop grade school, middle school and high school levels through the ‘Divots’ teams while their ‘Mulligan’ team program focuses on college level and adult elite club. Mulligan Field Hockey Academy offers a multitude of programs consisting of select travel teams, league play, development clinics, private lessons and summer camps.

The upcoming tryout is for team placement in the club as well as for spots on the team to National Festival. The National Festival is the largest college recruiting showcase in the country.

Practice times for the team will be on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. until the second week of November when additional practices will be announced.

The official tryout for Mulligan club will be held on Saturday, but due to our players’ conflict with the car wash fundraiser, the club will be holding a makeup tryout for us. The date and time will be announced at a later time, but if you are interested, you must register by Saturday and check the box, ‘unable to come’, indicating that you will attend the makeup tryout.

A Note from Grupe

Newport Harbor Field Hockey’s recent graduate, Lauren Grupe, sent us a note about her time so far at University of the Pacific.

“Hello! Just wanted to give a shout out to all my Sailor field hockey girls! Congratulations on your recent win! Keep up the great work! UOP has been an incredible experience so far. The field hockey team has become my family. We are together pretty much all the time and I love everyone. Whether we are having a team dinner or simply just practicing, we are always bonding and having the best time. College hockey is very time consuming and tons of hard work but its worth it because I love the sport. Playing Division I field hockey has been a great opportunity, and I strongly recommend playing at the college level to anyone who has a true passion for the sport. Good luck with your season and I wish the best to all of you!”
Thanks Lauren, we wish the best to you and are so glad to hear about how well your season is going!
