    A Message from Pinnacle to our field hockey community

    Dear Pinnacle Field Hockey Athletes, Families and Enthusiasts

    Thank you for checking out our webpage and inquiring about Pinnacle. As we all navigate uncharted waters know that we will endeavor to keep our Pinnacle Family together through communicating information here, on our home page, as well as emailing our travel athletes and spring registrants to help us remain connected.  

    Due to the rapidly changing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the start of  spring leagues will be delayed. At this point in time we plan to run spring leagues and travel programs, if practices and competitions are permitted at the direction of the CDC and the MI State Government.  As the weeks progress we will have more information to make informed decisions on potential start dates.  

    And in the midst of these uncharted waters we share:

    How do you see it?

    Two stone cutters were asked what they were doing.

    The first one said, “I’m cutting this stone into blocks.”

    The second one replied, “I’m on a team that’s building a cathedral.”

    Within our homes and communities, right now, let’s seek ways to continue to build our cathedrals, we’ve got this.

    Thank you for your understanding and support of Pinnacle Field Hockey.  

    ANNOUNCEMENT

    Pinnacle Field Hockey is thrilled to announce the addition of Pinnacle West, centered in Grand Rapids, to our field hockey family. Under the guidance and leadership of Kelsey (Thompson) Chun we look forward to collaboratively growing the game of field hockey in western Michigan. Kelsey has proven herself to be an integral contributor at each level in which she has competed, assisting her interscholastic as well as intercollegiate programs in winning championships. For an extensive view of Kelsey’s field hockey background and accomplishments, read about her on our Staff Page.

    Training sessions hosted at Pinnacle West can be found in the drop down tag titled Pinnacle West. (Look for upcoming programming there when Michigan’s state-wide “stay home stay safe” mandates lift and public gatherings are allowed again.)

    Welcome to the Pinnacle Family!

    A message from Coach Kelsey:

    “I am incredibly excited and honored to be at the helm of Pinnacle's expansion to West Michigan. I am certain that partnering with Pinnacle will offer western Michigan athletes an unparalleled opportunity by being part of the nationally-recognized club that coaching legend Nancy Cox has built.”

    Pinnacle Field Hockey Mission

    The Pinnacle Mission

    Since our launch, in 2009, Pinnacle has subscribed to our initial mission statement:

    •  grow the game,

    •  enable athletes to grow through a sport called field hockey as teammates and citizens, and

    • empower athletes to realize their goals for field hockey – interscholastic and/or intercollegiate

    At Pinnacle we endeavor to have each participant, grow in a fun and developmentally appropriate environ across all age groups ages 8 – 18.

    Within our training culture we strive to grow each athlete's speed of thought, foot, skill and tactical awareness while growing their strength in the 3 Cs: 

    • communication

    •  confidence

    •  courage.

    At Pinnacle it is our privilege to grow athletes through a game called field hockey to enable them to become courageous, confident and contributing members within the classroom, on the field, and in the community; therein lies our mission.
