Volunteering, Fundraising, Donations, and Community Sponsorships:

  • While the club is affiliated with Lamar High School, field hockey is not a UIL sport and we do not receive financial, facilities, or personnel support from HISD. The club relies on volunteers, fees, fundraisers, donations, and sponsorships to continue as a club and cover operating expenses.
  • Please consider contributing your time and talents to the team. We are in need of parent/guardian volunteers for every aspect of the club.
  • Players are required to participate in at least one team fundraising activity.
  • If you are unable to pitch in with your time, please consider a donation to the team which can further help the program. Donations can be made to any team leader.
  • The club offers a Community Sponsorship program giving organizations various ways to promote their business while supporting Lamar Field Hockey. Contact a team leader if you, a family member, friend, or associate are interested in participating.
