This spring we will be making a few changes to our traditional spring clinics. In addition to having our introductory clinics run by local high school coaches, we also plan to collaborate with other youth hockey programs for additional clinics and scrimmages. We will host three clinics in April at Meridian High School (upper field) on Saturday afternoons:
- April 6: Introduction to Field Hockey 1 (1-3 pm)
- April 13: Introduction to Field Hockey 2 (1-3 pm)
- April 27: Field Hockey for Current or Rising High Schoolers (1-3 pm)
This last clinic is intended for those interested in trying out for their high school team this upcoming fall, and will focus on the skills and abilities typically needed to prepare for a JV or Varsity tryout. There are no prerequisites for any of the sessions (though some experience will be helpful for the 4/27 clinic) and the clinics are intended to build upon each other, so your child(ren) can participate in both the introduction clinics (and the last one as well, if they meet the age/grade requirements).
Additionally, we plan to run clinics/scrimmages for high school players in March and April (Meridian High School, upper field, Saturdays 3-5 pm). These clinics will be run by the NoVA Xtreme field hockey program. We will provide a link for that registration when available. For those in elementary and middle school who want to play in a league, the Herndon-Reston youth field hockey program will run its spring session. More details can be found here.
And finally, we will look at hosting additional field hockey clinics and scrimmages in May based on interest.
Look for registration to open at the end of February/early March.
