From the Desk of Catherine Ostoich:

Field Hockey Champions,

The success of our field hockey program is directly attributed to the support of our Chippewa Club members. Your continual support through the Chippewa Club has allowed our field hockey program to strive for championship success. The Championship Fund builds on this support to further enhance our program through specific objectives.

The funding of these championship goals will enable our staff to recruit elite players to continue the growth of Chippewa field hockey. Whether it is funding an assistant coaching position or enhancing our current facilities, these funds will enable us to recruit the best so that we may become the best. It is essential that our program continues to evolve as the competitive landscape of Division I athletics continues to grow. Our coaching staff and players are committed to representing Central Michigan in a first class manner and developing a championship program.

Please take a moment to review our championship goals and consider contributing to our Championship Culture. I appreciate your support and look forward to bringing you another exciting season of Chippewa field hockey.

Catherine Ostoich
Head Field Hockey Coach

Current Championship Fund Initiatives

Locker Room Updates

Update the current wall wraps and include the 2014 MAC Regular Season Championship, also add carpet for the locker room and images. Would like to have standout/former field hockey athletes images on the walls in the locker room. Lastly, remove the locker sponsors and replace with locker number plaques for each locker to highlight current student athletes (no names so it is not a repeat expense).

Cost: TBD

Spring Season Travel Sponsorship

This is non-championship segment competitions and we have up to five dates available for use. It would be beneficial to provide out student athletes with access to all five but in the past we have not been able to utilize all five without exceeding the budget.

Cost: $5,000

Storage Facility

A sheltered location near the field to keep our equipment. We currently use softball's space which only allows us a limited space to store our field hockey equipment.

Cost: TBD

Game Goals

World class field hockey goals with maroon poly boards. These would be ideal, allowing us to have a better track record for resisting wear and tear and also compliment the new player shelters on the pitch.

Cost: TBD
