TRY FIELD HOCKEY FOR **FREE** DROP IN SPRING CLINIC
Have you ever wanted to try out field hockey but aren’t sure if it’s your thing? Come check us out at this free clinic where we will have plenty of extra sticks for you to use and we will be playing loads of fun games, including some scrimmages! This is a drop in clinic so you can stay for as long or as little as you like- whatever works for your schedule! We want to show new players of all ages what a fun and awesome sport this is so we hope to see you there!! Field Hockey now has a varsity and junior varsity team at the high school and this is the perfect time to check it out before the summer and fall sign-ups.
Co-Ed Spring Pick Up Field Hockey
This 6 week program is designed to give school age athletes an opportunity to play fun field hockey games and scrimmages. This is open to all students, regardless of past experience with the sport. Players will b
e separated as needed by age/skill level.
Sticks and balls will be provided to all players if they do not have them or do not bring their own. Shin guards and mouth guards may also be available.
Players attending school at SRE, CHCS, and Jabish will be able to be picked up by coaches (with a note from parents) and walked to the field.
FIELD HOCKEY SUMMER CLINIC
In this three-day clinic participants will be taught the fundamentals of field hockey through both drills and scrimmaging. Core skills will include basic rules, proper grip and posture, ball and stick control, passing and receiving along with basic offense and defense skills which will help the players to prepare for the upcoming fall season. This is made for players brand new to the sport at any age- including those planning to try out for the high school program. It is also ideal as a refresher and to have some fun before the fall season starts for our younger veteran players. Fun and fundamentals will be our focus.
SUMMER PICK UP & WALKING HOCKEY
This 5 week program is designed to give athletes, families, and community members an opportunity to engage in hockey via pick-up games. Pick-up games will include regular paced games as well as Walking Hockey, a new adaptation of the sport that can be played by all ages and is tons of fun. Walking hockey involves no running (just walking- at any speed you can manage), no big hits/ swings, and utilizes a bigger ball that is not as hard. This is open to all,
regardless of past experience with the sport. Sticks and balls will be provided to all players if they are needed.
