All players – freshman, JV and varsity – are expected to join the WFHA Facebook group, “WHS FHock 2024.” Our 2024 varsity captains (Bridget Grosso, Paige Leung and Mary Sylvester) are managing the page and will be communicating team news through it, such as captains’ practices,  fundraising events, etc.  Parents are welcome to join as well but this platform is primarily for player communication. To join, visit here.


We encourage all players and parents to follow the WHS Field Hockey Instagram page, wiltonfhockey24,” also managed by our 2024 varsity captains. To follow, visit here.

If you need help with these pages, please email us at


Parents, we encourage you to reach out to our board if you have questions or if you’d like to volunteer. We appreciate your support!

Here’s to an amazing 2024 season!  GO BLUE WHITE!!
