October 28, 2015, Austin TX – Austin Field Hockey just got stronger. We are delighted to announce that Austin’s Adult Field Hockey club has merged with Lone Star Field Hockey uniting efforts under one club umbrella to promote and grow the game of Field Hockey in Austin, San Antonio and Central Texas. Having both Youth and Adult divisions in one club provides a lot of synergies. The Adult club offers a talent pool of excellent coaching and umpiring skills that the Youth club can tap into while making a somewhat unique and ideal transition route for players as they grow out of the USA Field Hockey youth system but still wish to play hockey for fun. Lone Star Field Hockey Club, Austin, (www.lonestarfieldhockey.com) will consolidate administration, communication and marketing efforts under the single club entity while maintaining both sections of adult and youth hockey within the club.
The adult section plays mixed hockey with members hailing from all over the world, (India, England, Ireland, Argentina, South Africa, Australia and the U.S.) and it will continue to be led by its founder Arif Mahmud while the Youth program will continue to be led by Ali Murdoch. The Youth division offers year round skills training and travel/tournament opportunities for players aged 7 – 18. The Youth club caters to both the complete beginner and the elite travel player with training on artificial turf (astro-turf) for all age groups. The combined club expects to have over 100 members by the end of 2016.
Lone Star FH Club is a Not For Profit Organization.
