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 new outdoor season starts 2nd of September 2018 and we will compete again in the NLA. We are eager to improve as a team and keep the Hockey spirit up im Zurich! Some of our juniors are slowly joining the team, so we want to further grow together with them as a team. On the other side unfortunately 6-8 of our players from last season have left or will leave the team over the summer,  because they will be going back to their home countries. Therefore we are looking definitely 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! :-) 

Do you want to join?

If you love hockey as much as we do, like being part of a club and and a team, you are ALWAYS welcome 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. ;-) Just feel free to come along to one of our Wednesday's trainings to get to know us!
