The Scotland women's national field hockey team represents Scotland in international women's field hockey competitions, with the exception of the Olympic Games when Scottish players are eligible to play for the Great Britain women's national field hockey team as selected.[1] Scotland recently participated in the inaugural season of the FIH Hockey World League, but were knocked out in round 2, failing to qualify for the 2014 Hockey World Cup in The Hague, Netherlands.[1] As of November 2015 they are seventeenth in the FIH outdoor world rankings.[2]

Competing as Great Britain[edit]

Scotland do not compete at the Olympic Games, but Scottish players are eligible to play for Great Britain as selected. Great Britain instead of the four individual home nations (including Scotland) also compete at certain editions of both the FIH Hockey World League, usually when the tournament serves as an Olympic Games qualifier (most recently in 2014–15), and the FIH Hockey Champions Trophy, when held during Olympic years (most recently in 2016).

At the 1992 Olympic Games, Scottish field hockey players, Susan Fraser, Wendy Fraser and Alison Ramsay won bronze medals, as part of the Great Britain team in the women's tournament.[3] Scottish players Laura Bartlett and Emily Maguire repeated the feat at the 2012 Olympic Games.[4][5] Also with the Great Britain team, Maguire won silver at the 2012 FIH Hockey Champions Trophy (as did Bartlett), and a gold medal for winning the 2014–15 FIH Hockey World League Semi-finals.[4][5]
