​FALL 2021 PROGRAM OVERVIEW

GRADES 1-4

House program where we will place players in regular practice groups or “teams” that will practice together and scrimmage together each week during their Saturday session.  Given the larger numbers, we believe that this will facilitate a greater sense of organization and foster teamwork between the players.

The 1/2 Program will focus on getting familiarized with stick and ball and small sided games.

The 3/4 Program will focus on field hockey fundamentals and small-sided in-house games each week. Playdays will be scheduled with similar programs towards the end of the season in addition to the in-house games.

We need a larger volunteers (4-6 minimum) to help manage each practice group.  Please contact Clara Ambrose, claraambrose@hotmail.com  if you are interested, we need you!

  • In-house Teams - Assigned for practices and in-house scrimmages each week

  • In-house Games/Scrimmages - Will begin 2-3 weeks into the season

  • Playdays with other programs -  1-2 playdays towards the end of the season

GRADES 5-8

Full Travel Program with two practices per week, weekend travel games (Saturday or Sunday) and jamborees/tournament play.  Teams will be leveled.
