Why MULLIGAN started...
Why Judy Schaefer started MULLIGAN Club an organized year-round field hockey program. Your answer is easy. Even though she put together showcase teams for many years there was not an Orange County, California field hockey club catering to the athlete that trains together and competes in more than twenty-five years.
Driven to show Orange County has some of the best athletes in the country along with her love of the sport, pushes a campaign to elevate athletes, especially young women athletes, with another opportunity to play out admirable college careers representing the west coast region. As a collegiate athlete herself, Judy has spent a career making change and gaining recognition to our region to level out the playing field given to east coast players where hockey is more prevalent.
MULLIGAN Field Hockey Club cultivates and develops all athletes in team based opportunity. Teaching "inspired athletes become champions" as a model and tool for life skills.
