About the team

About the team

We, the GC Ladies, are the most multinational and mixed team of Switzerland. We speak Dutch, English, German, Spanish (Argentina), Italian and of course Swiss German on the pitch and besides hockey we are a wild mix of students, expats, mums, engineers, controllers, teachers, programmers, travel agents, butlers and physiotherapists. We are not only motivated for trainings and competing in matches, but we are also helping out in the club with junior coaching, umpiring, sponsoring events, team organisation and especially team events, because we like to be part of the hockey community here in Zurich.  

During the last field season (2017/18) there was no National League B (NLB) im Switzerland anymore, because unfortunately the great field hockey community in Switzerland seems to be shrinking. Therefore we took the opportunity to compete against the top five teams of Switzerland in the NLA. It was a very tough season for us to play against some very strong opponents, especially to mention Wettingen and Geneve who have many National players and competed also in 2018 in the Eurohockey Club Challenge I and II respectively.  

Our goals

Challenge accepted! The outdoor season continues for us in April 2019 and we will compete again in the NLA. Our mein goal is to grow as a team and integrate the new junior players into the team. Because competing in the NLA can be quite tough, we want to increase our performance in the games and increase our training intensity (from one training to one main plus an additional training a week).

Do you want to join?

Some players left our team again and we are therefore looking for some new players to help us compete, train and enjoy hockey with us! Actually compared to the top hockey leagues of other countries, like Germany, or Netherlands the NLA is not entirely as competitive. So if you "only" want to train 1-2 times a week, but used to play some hockey back in your home country, don't be shy and come along to the hockey pitch! You will love it! :-) 

We are always looking for new players, who share our passion about hockey, like being part of a club and a team. So feel free to join us, be it at the beginning of the outdoor or indoor season, in the middle of the season, in the party season, or simply as soon as you have moved to Zurich. 

Please bring your own stick, protection wear and AstroTurf shoes if possible. But if you need to borrow something for the first couple of trainings, there are some spare sticks available. For more information and any questions you can contact Wendela.

See you soon on the pitch...! The GC ladies!
