News and Announcements
The Junior Field Hockey League has grown significantly over the past few years and they need more coaches.
There are openings for coaches in the U10 and U12 division and all of the practice plans have been laid out. Not only is coaching very personally rewarding but the success of the Junior programs translate into the success of field hockey in the future.
The Junior league is very short (~ 10 weeks) and runs from the beginning of April to mid June. If you are interested in coaching this season or would like to pair up with another coach please let me or the Junior coordinator know
Note: ALL the practice plans for every week have already been pre-laid out and are ready for you! All you have to do is be there :)
