Field Hockey is one of Appleby's core sports. Due to the success of our teams, Field Hockey is extremely popular. The success of the Senior Teams should not outshine the results of our younger competitors. At the U14 level, the team is consistently one of top teams in the league and has won the league championship twice in the past five years. At U14, most girls have not played the sport, however, if interested in competing, a strong fitness base is recommended. At the Junior level, tactics and skills are built upon. The team competes and practices after school throughout the week and enters some weekend tournaments. Similarly, the Division 2 Team competes in the Division 2 division of the CISAA. Games are throughout the week, including Saturdays and practices are run mid-week. Typically at the Senior Team level, our athletes have come through the ranks (U14, Junior and Senior Division 2 Team); some girls have also started to play outside of school in leagues in the area, and at the provincial level. The coaching focus is to improve upon existing skills and fitness and to further develop field positioning and game strategies. Although there is a strong emphasis on winning and achieving success, this should not detract from those individuals that are interested in trying Field Hockey for the first time.
