About Us/Our Mission

Founded in 2011, in Williamsville, the WNY Whalers have cultivated and strengthened field hockey fundamentals in WNY for 7 years.

Our roots began in training local college field hockey student-athletes in advanced approaches and systems, along with integrating high-intensity, sport-specific exercise to aid preparation and maintenance during the rigors of a college career.

Today, now in our fifth year of travel, we offer a variety of paths for individual players, including fundamentals camps and clinics, as well as select club travel teams at the U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, and U19 age groups. Our diverse group of players represent 16 of the 26 WNY public districts and private schools.

Our mission is to foster and cultivate a passion for the game, and provide a platform and road mapĀ for those interested in pursuing skill development and highest possible levels.

Our Resume

Our coaching staff is amazing.

The entire WNY Whalers staff has over 180 years of coaching experience, collectively drawing from extensive personal backgrounds as both field hockey players and instructors.

Eight of our 20 coaches also work within 8 NYSPHSAA Section VI public districts including 5 coaches at the varsity level. Another two are current college coaches.

All of our coaches were standout athletes that went through the college recruiting process and were extremely successful once on campus. Every Whalers coach was on academic or athletic scholarship, and were also award winners on the field and in the classroom.

Each coach was hand selected based on their coaching philosophies and merit. We know what it takes to improve, and we are here to share that knowledge with you.
