Field hockey is Mater Amoris’ primary sport. All students are introduced to field hockey upon beginning the Lower Elementary Program. Every child participates and the focus is on athleticism, conditioning, and teambuilding. Students develop a thorough understanding of the game and improve their skills through regular practice.

The goal for the Mater Amoris field hockey program is for each child to realize their own greatest potential and to develop a high level of athletic performance.

Members of the Upper Elementary class play competitively and have the option to travel with the team at least once during the school year to a regional or national tournament.

Mater Amoris graduates have gone on to participate in intercollegiate field hockey at colleges and universities including Duke University, Northwestern University, Skidmore College, Stanford University, Syracuse University, and Towson University.


"We were welcomed and encouraged to participate in activities, sports, and experiences that reinforce the true nature of the Montessori philosophy. Our children have flourished in an environment with experienced teachers who teach to the whole child."
