Welcome to the USTS Field Hockey Club website!
Who are we?
USTS Field Hockey is a fun and friendly hockey club, run by members and their families.
Founded in 2012, it has since become the fastest-growing field hockey club in Switzerland, with the highest proportion of female players.

Our aim is to enable children and adults to play and enjoy field hockey.
We aim to provide top quality coaching, to develop players’ physical skills, but to also promote the ‘softer’ skills associated with participation in a team sport – respect, responsibility, leadership and team spirit.
We aim to be inclusive, providing something for everyone, regardless of age or ability – a philosophy reflected in the social events which we organise to develop club spirit beyond simply playing the sport.
We are members of the Swiss Hockey Federation (www.swisshockey.org). Our teams play in national championship leagues. Our players have opportunities to trial for national teams, and a significant number of our juniors have been successful in becoming members of Swiss National Hockey squads.
We are members of the Suisse Romande Hockey Forum, and work with other local clubs to develop the sport locally, and to organise training, and friendly tournaments.
We are part of Union Sportive Terre Sainte, which serves the Terre Sainte community, and also has football, ice-hockey, badminton and table tennis sections. (www.usts.ch)
The field hockey club is run by a committee of volunteers, selected from the parent/member community. Training and development of players is led by a team of experienced field hockey coaches. In addition, other volunteers from the parent/member community give their time to help with training, social events, tournaments, etc.
We offer a top class field hockey coaching facility to children aged 6 – 18 years. Our juniors play in Swiss Hockey national championship leagues. They also have opportunities to trial for national teams, and a significant number of our juniors have been successful in becoming members of Swiss National Hockey squads.
We offer an opportunity for adults to play and enjoy the sport on a recreational basis.
We take part in friendly tournaments, and also increasingly in Swiss Hockey championship league tournaments.
