Mystix Players to Goucher & Endicott

Recently, two of our players were featured in our county newspaper outlining their post high school field hockey endeavors. Both Ariana (Ari) Hooper and Lauren Whitney of Poway CA, have been extended scholarship opportunities and will be playing on the NCAA Field Hockey teams for their respective East Coast Colleges.

Both players have been with the Mystix Field Hockey club for their entire field hockey careers, and the Mystix team and family couldn't be prouder of them!

Good luck to Ari and Lauren, we will remember you!

Play for Pink 2017

Congratulations to all of our teams at the Play for Pink tournament.  All of you played great and placing first or second in every pool is quite amazing in all of the coaches eyes.  We definitely made a statement this weekend!  Go MYSTIX!
 
Thank you to Coach Mike for helping on day one.  To Ari and Gabbi on day two with the U14's.  We could not have been successful without all of your help.  
 
Thank you to my team parents, Jodi (Bella and Gigi's mom) for the U19 and U16's, Michelle (Kailey's mom) U14 Silver, Jenny (Mia's mom) U14 Purple.  And thank you for sending pictures to the other parents on our teams.
 
And thank you to all the parents for your support of our team, providing snacks, waters and drinks, blankets to sit on and the pop up tents.  All of these items are appreciated.

2020 Freshman Players

Mystix has another successful Freshman High School class for the 2016 season. After participating in our clinics and leagues, playing in Play for Pink, Play for Mila, CA State Games and Cal Cup we had a large number of players successfully make their high school teams. This year we had four young ladies make their Varsity teams as Freshman. Jade Lollis - Mira Mesa HS, Megan Knee - Mt Carmel HS, Sydney Kallman - Poway HS and Char Walker Poway HS.

These young ladies worked very hard and set goals to make their varsity teams and successfully achieved them. They are also contributing a great deal to their varsity teams every game.

Congratulations to these four young ladies!

Spreading our love for field hockey

February is most notable for the Valentine’s Day and President’s Day. While most of us are eager for days off and honoring those we love, our club is currently igniting passion for the game of field hockey in the new girls who attend our middle school clinics.
Here in sunny San Diego 5/6 th grade is when most girls first try picking up a stick and exploring the game of field hockey. Our middle school clinics attract many different girls who want to give field hockey a try. Whether this is their first attempt at playing a team sport or a seasoned player from another sport looking to explore new options, we strive to instill in the girls attending not just the basics of how to play but the passion for the game we love. We want them to learn not just the skills to play field hockey but make a supportive environment that builds their confidence so they believe they can master anything they set their mind and heart to.
Our older high school girls are not left out of the chance to master new skills this February. Many of our top tier national travel team players volunteer to be assistant coaches at our middle school clinic. It allows them to be peer mentors to the younger players of our club. It also gives them the invaluable experience to learn the game from the view of a coach so when they play at the college level they are a more rounded player then some of their teammates who have never had the experience of coaching. It is well known you are never fully a master of a skill till you can turn around and effectively teach the skill to another person. Every assistant coach will tell you that it is not as easy as it looks and helps them develop not only as a player but as a person since they have to work on communication, patience and positivity to be good with the younger girls.
Maybe our girls can inspire you to look around this February and share your love and passion for something with your community. You will find you get as much out of the experience as the community you are inspiring.
