Thank you for all the past athletes who have represented Team Pittsburgh and other leagues to establish out club as one of the nation’s premier for Western Pennsylvania Field Hockey players. We have exposed players to countless college coaches and helped aid in the recruiting of many who have or are still currently playing at the collegiate level.
