Crouse started playing field hockey when she was 10 years old after driving by her local high school's field on the way to a summer camp at her local recreation center. When she saw the girls playing and working hard, and her dad mentioned that maybe she should try it. Crouse agreed and soon joined the team. She was immediately hooked and later would go on to help that same high school win its 18th and 19th state titles.
