The entire field hockey program, 6th grade through varsity, contributed to what was a season of unprecedented program-wide success during the 2018-2019 season. Between all five of our teams, we only saw 2 losses, with three of the teams going undefeated for the season in Middle and Upper Schools!

Our Varsity Field Hockey team WON the FAA Tournament over Greenwich Academy, revenging their only loss during the regular season. That, along with an incredible regular season run, earned them the #3 ranking in the NEPSAC post-season tournament where they advanced to the semifinal round. Their season ended in a tight game that went to overtime. This was our best finish and ranking to date in the New England tournament; a historic season!

There are a lot of talented and hardworking field hockey players at Sacred Heart, and the future continues to be bright for this program as it is seeing amazing success at all levels. Congratulations to the coaches and student-athletes for their seasons!


Sacred Heart Greenwich has a 154,800 square foot multi-purpose, synthetic outdoor playing surface, six hard-court tennis court, two natural grass fields, and a three-mile cross-country course.

The field hockey turf field was resurfaced in 2017 to install a new surface similar to those used at the collegiate and professional levels. The field hockey field is a water-based artificial turf that is blue in color to provide high visibility both on the field and for spectators. Prior to practices and games, high-pressure water cannons spray the field to produce an optimal playing surface that has less resistance between the ball and turf. 

Athletes also have access to our 35,600 square foot athletic center designed for women’s sports which opened in September 2015. The facility includes three National Federation of State High School Associations regulation basketball and volleyball courts, six international singles squash courts, classrooms for health and physical education, a strength and conditioning room, a dance and yoga studio, and a sports medicine center in addition to locker rooms for home and visiting teams, a press box, and administrative offices.
