Learn the basics in field hockey! All skill levels are welcome.
We will explore the basic rules of the game, proper grips & posture, ball and stick control, tackling, receiving/trapping, passing and go through fun drills. Depending on class size, we will try to get some game action in as well!
Required equipment includes a field hockey stick, shin guards and mouth guard. A face mask would also be encouraged. We do have a LIMITED number available for purchase at the Pfaff Center.
Class will be led by coach Lynne Malmquist, a former varsity field hockey player at Medfield High School.
** For outdoor sessions, classes will be held at McCarthy Park on the large field in front of the Little League fields. Please do not send your child out to the field until the prior group has cleared out.
** Note -- Indoor sessions will be held at the Pfaff Center, 124 North St. Due to the size of the space, we will only be running an indoor session for grades 1-2 as of now. This is an introduction to the sport, so no previous experience is required.
** COVID regulations will be followed, including wearing a mask for the entire class. Also, we are limited to the number of participants per class.
