We are Competitive Edge Field Hockey

Competitive Edge Field Hockey was started ten years ago with the hopes of improving the quality of field hockey in Connecticut. From winter indoor leagues to summer clinics to national club team tournaments, CEFH has found a way to provide playing opportunities throughout the year. This organization was started by two former Division I players who wanted to share their passion for field hockey with as many athletes as possible.

Dani Brown
Fairfield University '03

As a member of the Stags Field Hockey team, she was named to the All Patriot League First Team in 2000 and 2002, as well as the NFHCA All Mideast First Team in 2002. She holds the school's single season record for game winning goals, as well as the #3 spot for career goals scored and career points earned. After graduation, Dani worked as an assistant coach at Fairfield University and was actively involved with the recruiting process. In addition to her playing and coaching experience, Dani teaches English at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, and is a Level III certified umpire. She regularly officiates games at both the high school and collegiate level, and has had experience umpiring at the international level.

Kati earned her degree in biology and played varsity field hockey all four years.
