Girls' Youth Field Hockey

Summer/Fall 2018

The Southington Recreation Department is pleased to offer a youth field hockey program for Southington resident girls who will be entering Grades 3-9* in the next school year (2018-19).

*Students entering 9th grade who will be playing on a High School field hockey team are NOT eligible to participate in this program per CIAC regulations.

Participants will learn the basic skills of field hockey and eventually use those skills in small scrimmage settings. Instructional skills will focus on basic dribble (tapping & dragging), passing (push & driving), reverse stick, scooping, stopping (give & hard stops), and defense (blocking & jabbing). Drills and plays will focus on team work and moving the ball down the field.

All students will be required to bring the following supplies: Field hockey stick; shin guards; mouth guard; water bottle. Eye goggles and cleats are optional.
