Mollie Williams, Head of Middle School, will be offering a Spring outdoor field hockey clinic for Middle School girls during the months of March, April, and May. Field hockey is one of the oldest sports in the world. You can find evidence that Egyptians played a sport very similar to modern day field hockey as long as 4,000 years ago.  There are several key differences between indoor field hockey and outdoor field hockey.
