Saint Gertrude High School Middies Field Hockey

Saint Gertrude High School's Middies field hockey program provides teams for middle school girls from area Catholic, independent, and public middle schools. Home schooled students are also welcome to join our program. We welcome all fifth through eighth-grade girls to contact us today. Saint Gertrude currently offers Middies teams for field hockey, girls' volleyball, girls’ lacrosse, and softball. In the winter, the Benedictine Schools of Richmond is proud to host a middle school basketball league for area middle schools in our state-of-the-art, McMurtrie-Reynolds Pavilion.

Practices and Games

The Middies field hockey teams practice and host games on Benedictine Schools of Richmond Abbey campus (12829 River Road). Away games are played at various local schools. Middies field hockey begins practice in late August. For questions regarding Middies field hockey, contact Regina Ryan:

Why Play Middies Sports

Middies field hockey is a great opportunity for girls to learn and grow in their sport, gain confidence, build character, as well as meet fellow athletes from different schools and build new relationships. In addition, Middies field hockey players have an opportunity to work with high school coaches.

About Our Facilities

The Benedictine Schools of Richmond operates Saint Gertrude High School and Benedictine College Preparatory. Together the schools share a peaceful, modern, and sprawling campus including the campus’s new, world-class athletic facilities, an auditorium, newly renovated baseball field, athletic fields, and a new state-of-the-art gymnasium.

Saint Gertrude’s Middies Program helped me develop both as an athlete and as a person. It gave me the opportunity to meet Saint Gertrude coaches and future Gators. In fact, that’s how I met my best friend.
