Adult Field Hockey is Growing in Michigan!

Adult field hockey: Come be a part of something great in Michigan!

Throughout the fall and winter, adults have been gathering to play both indoor hockey and full field hockey. We have organized playing opportunities in both the Grand Rapids and Brighton areas for adults to enjoy our sport at all levels of play.


It’s very exciting to see parents on the field with their adult children, as well as former collegiate players who are having fun introducing their friends to the sport. The winter season was a great success, thanks to the culmination of Playdays at both the Grand Rapids and Brighton home courts. Playdays on both the east and west side were attended by players from GLRFH & FH2 - West Michigan Field Hockey.

It's always a great time when you bring together adults from all over the state to play. We hope this is only the beginning and look forward to hosting more events in the future, whether in West Michigan, Ann Arbor or the Lansing areas.  - Andrea Shaner, President, Forest Hills Field Hockey & Vice President, USA Field Hockey Michigan Chapter

It was so exciting to be part of a fun community of adults who all have a love for field hockey. I look forward to more similar opportunities in the future. - Gabi Coty, High School Coach & Former College Player


Now that spring has arrived, we are excited to announce our Spring Sessions, including two travel tournament opportunities!

Register: Midwest Festival - Cincinnati, OH, June 4th & 5th

This is the same 7v7 tournament we attended last year!

10:00 AM - 4:00PM each day

We will request a late start on Saturday to make it possible to drive to the event on Saturday, and only require a one night hotel stay (extended stay is optional).  

Cost is $45 for non-members and $35 for GLRFH members

Registration deadline - May 15th

We will register as many teams as we can field and if appropriate play in both the competitive and social division.

Register: Chicago Cup - Evanston, IL, June 18th & 19th

This is a competitive tournament.  If numbers allow, we will field two teams. The teams will be based on competitive playing level.  If we do not have enough for two teams, and have more that 18 interested players, slots will be allocated so that we field a competitive team. 

Cost $115 non-members, $95 for GLRFH Members

Registration deadline - April 20th
