U21 Field Hockey Team Travels To Philadelphia

July 12, 2016

With funding from Hamilton, the Bermuda Under 21 Women’s Field Hockey team recently departed for a trip to Philadelphia, where they’ll spend a week attending five clinics run by Olympic field hockey coaches.

The young women will also play five matches against local field hockey teams in the area. Bermuda’s team, who have been training three times a week since their formation in September 2015, is comprised of 17 girls ranging in age from 11 to 21.

A spokesperson said, “This trip provides an opportunity for young Bermudian female athletes to be exposed to the level of field hockey that’s played overseas. Several girls on the ‚Äčteam, [Azari Thomas, Georgia Harris, Isabella Boonstra and Constance Francis] are actively playing for their schools in the US and Canada and two of the Bermudian coaches, Jessica Hollis and Jennifer Beech, also played field hockey for their universities before graduating.

“Hamilton supports non profit organizations in the Bermuda community through its Community Giving Committee, using a variety of criteria to evaluate applications for funding that include the manner in which the organization contributes to the health and wellbeing of Bermuda’s families in three main areas – arts and education, sports and social services.”
