Seacoast United Field Hockey is excited to announce that this is the fourth year in a row that we will be sending teams to the Shooting Star Thanksgiving Tournament! As a coaching staff, we feel that it is one of the best recruiting showcases of the year, and always look forward to it. Shooting Star provides a more local and affordable opportunity, which allows exposure for all types of teams looking for competition over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Last year there were 186 teams playing and over 164 college coaches watching!  The Shooting Star Tournament provides competitive opportunities for a variety of age group teams and outstanding recruiting visibility. We encourage athletes who are interested in playing at the collegiate level to consider trying out for this opportunity. College coaches like to see athletes participate in events of this caliber, and this year we will be sending ONE U16 and ONE U19 team to represent Seacoast United Field Hockey (Essex) MA!
