The Hill is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL), featuring New Jersey field hockey rival Lawrenceville School. Our non-league schedule features numerous teams from the Philadelphia Inter-Ac league, as well as a handful of other non-league games against top teams from the Philadelphia area and New Jersey. Toward the end of the season, Hill competes in the Pennsylvania Independent School Athletic Association (PAISAA) State Championship Tournament. Hill fields a JV program that plays a schedule virtually identical to the Varsity schedule, allowing younger players to develop their skills and gain valuable game experience.
Since the program's inception, Hill players have gone on to compete at the Division I and Division III levels, including schools such as The University of Maryland, Duke University, Princeton University, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, University of North Carolina, Northwestern University, University of Pennsylvania, Wake Forest University, Colgate University, Fairfield University, Northeastern University, Boston College, Lafayette College, Trinity College, Franklin and Marshall College, Ursinus College, Dickinson College, and Wellesley College. Hill field hockey players will learn to work harder than they ever had to before, coupled with learning how to be great teammates and even better people. The knowledgeable coaching staff will help improve each player's stick skills and develop her game sense that she will need to compete at the college level. Most importantly, all players learn the value of discipline and rigor while experiencing the fun and excitement of interscholastic athletics.
