About us: Watch Coach Chrissy describe what we’re about!

“Every experience I’ve had with Beyond sticks has been incredibly positive. I attended camps, development and played in the LCL league for the past 4 years. These programs are just what players need: a positive environment to gain life skills while building confidence through field hockey- one of the greatest sports in the world!”
