[Field] Hockey? Lake Zurich
 
Are there any hockey clubs (field hockey, not uni or ice) around the lake? Found two clubs in Zurich, but nothing further East. We are moving there and our 10 year old son would like to continue playing.

Thanks

No. You seem to have found the closest one already. See http://www.swisshockey.org/?inc=verb...yp=Nav2&cat=65


The only other option is switching to Unihockey (I know it's not the same but it's much more popular so you will have a bigger choice).


Hope you will settle in nicely!

I really hope he will not want to play Unihockey ...

hahahaha, growing up in Canada (90s) field hockey was a women's sport.


And we didn't have 'unihockey' either :P

yes there are three or four hockey clubs in Zurich.


Grass Hoppers (my boys play for them) www.gc-landhockey.ch
Red Sox - www.redsox.ch
Zurichsee - www.zsht.ch


and a bit futther out



Wettingen - www.rww.ch


All of the clubs have several age groups, and a 10 year old would play for the under 12s. CH has different playing age groups to the rest - not sure why.


Wettingen is by far the best and most professional club but it depends what you're looking for in a club. i can speak about GC and the pros and cons.


PM me if you want more info

Thanks.

Yes, these seem to be the nearest clubs in the area. All too far from Lachen, I think. Will take more time getting there and back than he would actually spend playing. So probably football close by is the better option.
