Field Hockey Club

Winter Indoor Club Teams: U12 - U14 - U16 - U19

  • Indoor field hockey is played on a hard-court surface with sideline rebound boards. The technical skills, speed of execution, vision and ball control enhances player development for the outdoor game. 
  • The discipline is sanctioned by USA Field Hockey and is a primary winter training method offered by clubs nationwide for athletes seeking higher levels of high school and collegiate play. 
  • Indoor field hockey players use an indoor specific stick (different than outdoor) and a left-handed glove. Neither are required for tryouts, but will be required equipment for players selected to indoor teams.
