• "Field hockey looks easy"
  • Me: "okay, lets see you run for 70 minutes non-stop btw you have to be hunched over so forget about breathing and youre squatting the entire time so your quads and butt are on fire but block that out because someones about to drive that large solid plastic ball into your leg at about 40mph, oh and that girl whiffed and nailed you with a stick made of kevlar aka what they make bulletproof vests out of oh and it's summer so it's like a gazillion degrees times ten because we're playing on the sun's surface aka turf.
  • do you want to rethink that statement now?"

comingbackforyou:

Please consider taking a moment to sign this petition. Last week, several of my friends who are Division I athletes at RU were blindsided when the University Board of Visitors announced that Field Hockey, Men’s Track and Field, and Women’s Swimming and Diving were all being cut in favor of a Women’s Lacrosse team. These cuts affect over 60 athletes at RU, who have spent their whole lives training to be on a Division I team in their sport, and some of whom gave up opportunities to attend their dream schools in favor of playing their dream sport at RU. It would mean a great deal to these athletes, the Radford community, my friends, and me if you would take the time to sign this and pass it on.

Anonymous asked: what's the role of the sweeper in fh?

fhockeyprobs:

The sweeper is the defender that sits the farthest back than anyone else (except the goalie of course). They are last line of defense before the goalie. Typically they are the strongest defender on the team, but the sweeper must be confident mentally that no one can get by them :)
