FIELD HOCKEY FAQS (AND ANSWERS!)


Q: What if I haven’t been on a team before? 

A: No problem!  We teach the game and skills to the younger girls and still work on basics every practice.  You just need to be willing to learn and we will teach you!  NO MATTER WHAT GRADE YOU CAN JOIN A TEAM IF YOUR NEW TO THE SPORT!

 

Q: Are there evaluations? 

A: Yes depending on grade level and player numbers. Everyone who wants to play makes a team. 

 

Q: Do we need certain equipment? 

A: YES!  Equipment is very important to the game and SAFETY of our players.  Each player must have:

-field hockey stick (should come to hip bone from ground to be properly sized)

-field hockey eye googles

-(2) mouth guards—these get lost and a backup is important!

-shin guards

If you need help please contact a coordinator and we will walk you through the basics on equipment.

  

Q: If I miss practices, can I still play in games?

A:  Not unless it has been discussed with your Head Coach.  Practices are required, this is a team sport and the more time we work together as team the stronger each team will be together.  We understand we cannot all be at everything and as long as there is open communication we can work things out together to benefit all players.
