Our members are challenged to develop their skills and abilities through competition in a fun and positive way. Sportsmanship, respect for the rules of the game, respect for teammates and opponents, self-discipline, team loyalty, intensity of effort, and competitive spirit are the foundation of the Lasting Legacy Field Hockey Club.
