As a member of the Founders League and a Class A school—the highest level—in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC), Kent's field hockey teams compete at the highest level and graduate players who go on to play in college and compete nationally.
An important aspect of the field hockey squad is the focus on perseverance, respect for self and others, and most importantly, character development.
Kent’s field hockey program consists of two teams: the highly-competitive varsity and a developmental junior varsity team geared towards those new to or less experienced in the sport. The most athletic and skilled players compete at the varsity level, but players of all abilities can find a spot within the program.
Through the pursuit of healthy habits and participation in competitive athletics, Kent scholar-athletes embrace the level of commitment necessary to achieve their individual goals while recognizing the importance of academic pursuits. The continuing strength of the Field Hockey program depends on the commitment of new and returning athletes.
