Field hockey is one of Brentwood's major competitive first term team sports. Open to girls of all age levels and abilities the school fields seven teams that participate in tournaments and leagues in the ISA. Our Junior girls compete in the Island Championships while Midget-level girls compete in the mid-Island championships. The senior team - the 1st XI - competes in the BC Provincial Championships and consistently performs well at this highly competitive level. Brentwood has dedicated field hockey fields and while the program moves indoors for the second term it returns to the fields once again in the third.
