Make Your Team Series
New! This year we are excited to start a new summer program for Rising 7th and 8th graders so they can be selected to represent their school in Field Hockey!
Not your typical development session, The "Make Your Team Series" is a blend between development and summer league. It is a program designed to provide our young athletes with the fundamentals and tactics of field hockey so that they can be ready for Fall Season at their school. "Make Your Team Series" focuses on development through game play so our young athletes understand rules, positions and concepts while practicing their individual skills in game-like situations!
WHO: Rising 6th and 9th Graders. Sign up with your school friends and learn together!
WHERE: The Potomac School turf field: 1301 Potomac School Rd, McLean, VA 22101
WHEN: June 19th - July 19th. Tuesdays OR Thursdays from 4-6 PM. Excluding 4th of July week which will be on Monday July 2nd and resume Thursday July 5th.
COST: Tuesdays $160. Thursdays $160. Both Tuesdays and Thursdays $288
A few more details…
All players are required to wear a reversible pinnie. If a player does not have a pinnie, she will be charged $25 and given a pinnie on site.
For Games: If you are playing as an individual, you will be grouped with other individuals based upon your selection or ability. Don't worry- most of our players sign up to play alone or only with one or two friends!
All players are required to bring their own shin guards, mouth guards, and sticks. Eye protection is optional, but we recommend the US Field Hockey approved plastic goggles. The wire goggles can injure a player who is not wearing goggles if a collision occurs.
Please bring a water bottle. Water will be available at the fields for refills.
WHY: Really? We have to tell you?!
Just so you know: The profits from our summer league help support scholarships for athletes who cannot afford to play during the school year and our free programs for inner city Charter schools.
See you this summer for some fun, competitive hockey!!
