Welcome to Beyond Sticks!


Welcome to playing beyond the game. We coach field hockey, character, and leadership on our fields.  Both Beyond Sticks and our non-profit arm, Play Beyond the Game, have a mission to empower athletes through sport. 

We run field hockey programs and multi-sport camps with integrated character and leadership development. Starting in 1st grade, we offer programs throughout Northern Virginia during the school year and summer.

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

We aren’t exactly obsessed with failure-we just know it’s inevitable. We want our athletes to know how to bounce back! Coach JoJo discusses how our camps have impacted her and how she embraces failure.

“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!”
— Current Student Coach
