Saxon’s shout-out: “Most importantly, I would like to thank Coach Alex McMahan from Mainline Field Hockey and GMA for always believing in me and placing me on the right path to become a D1 player. I definitely made the right decision when I switched to her club. I also want to thank Emily Papas from Relentless for helping me become a stronger and more confident athlete. Finally, I want to thank Sue Persichetti, my former coach who has supported me from Day 1  of freshman year. All three of these women have made such a positive impact on my hockey career and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their support. Last but not least, I want to thank my parents for their continued support and being my biggest fans!”

The Main Line Field Hockey Club

The Main Line Field Hockey Club (“Mayhem”) is the first field hockey club to offer advanced skills development in the heart of the Main Line of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. MAYHEM is about MORE than just field hockey. It’s about building confidence in young women that will change their lives, and it’s about coaches who are not only experts in their craft but who serve as role models.
