„We win anyway because we are girls!“

Field hockey means the urge to move, field hockey means fun and games, field hockey means the pure joy of playing sports together. But field hockey is also a sport for girls as well as for boys! We want to bring this closer to you. We as Swiss Hockey want to promote girls’ field hockey. With the Swiss Hockey Tour we travel through Switzerland and organize events in different cities with action booths and great prizes. Field hockey to touch, field hockey to try out for yourself.

Since the summer of 2017, the three friends Lena, Max and Lars have been shaping the external image of Swiss children’s land field hockey as Swiss Hockey Kids, bringing with them many surprises that allow the sport of field hockey to flow into all children’s rooms and areas of life. Whether through the colorful participatory book, with eye-catching posters, banners or flyers for interested parties and schools: With the Swiss Hockey Kids, field hockey is made visible in a child-friendly and attractive way.

#EHC2021 - It's silver! In the final, we are narrowly defeated by Ukraine 2:1. The Ukrainians earned a short corner in the first minute, which they also converted. It was an even game. Ukraine used a small carelessness to extend their lead. After the half-time break we increased the tempo of the game and had some chances. Janice Thoma scored shortly before the end to tie the game at 2:1. 💪🏼🇨🇭🏑 #swisshockey #bebetter #MissionLA2028 #fieldhockey #hockey #women #EuroHockey #EHF #europeanchampionship #lipovci #slovenia #game #match #goal #step #stepbystep #final #win #promotion #division #target ...

#EHC2021 - We are in the final! We have fulfilled another goal and will be in the final tomorrow. By reaching the final, we managed to advance to a higher division. Due to a mode change, there will be a qualifying tournament in every non-European Championship year to determine which nation plays in which division. The higher our ranking in the current EuroHockey Championship III, the better our starting position for the qualification. 💪🏼🇨🇭🏑 #swisshockey #bebetter #MissionLA2028 #fieldhockey #hockey #women #EuroHockey #EHF #europeanchampionship #lipovci #slovenia #game #match #goal #step #stepbystep #semifinal #win #promotion #division #final #target ...

#EHC2021 - We win the second game of the EuroHockey Championship III against Portugal 1:0. Due to the postponement of the game, the game started with only 5 minutes left to play in the first quarter. The game was dominated by us, but there is still potential in finishing the attacks. Through a beautiful rebound by Elena Trösch on a short corner, we managed to take the lead. More attacks followed, but we did not manage to convert them into goals. Tamara Trösch scored a beautiful volley goal, but it was disallowed. Another important three points are now on our account and tomorrow we play the last group match against Slovakia at 14:45 pm.

The third quarter was dominated by Turkey's short corners, one of which they managed to score. We didn't let ourselves be distracted and were able to score the 3:2 shortly before the end with an attack from the right through Nele Pöhler. Tomorrow we will play against Portugal at 14:45 pm.

#suspension - We imagined the start of the EuroHockey Championship III differently. After 10 minutes, our game had to be interrupted due to heavy rain and thunderstorms. After a long wait, the decision was made that the game has to be postponed to 3rd of August. Tomorrow we have our next game against Turkey. So fingers crossed for better weather. ⚡️⛈☔️ #swisshockey #bebetter #MissionLA2028 #fieldhockey #hockey #women #EuroHockey #EHF #europeanchampionship #lipovci #slovenia #weather #thunderstorms #suspension #game #match ...
