Welcome to Newtown Youth Field Hockey
1st through 5th Grade – This program will consist of a weekly practice with the season cumulating with a Jamboree involving other towns. Players will learn the FUNdamentals of field hockey. We focus on the basics; ball control, passing and receiving, and rules of the game. My goal is to have every girl fall in love with the game so we create fun practices with a positive atmosphere.
6th -8th Grade – This team will practice 2x a week and compete in weekly games on the weekend against other towns in Fairfield County. Players will continue to improve their basic skills and understanding of the game, but we will develop more strategy and tactical aspects of the game, such as defensive and attacking skills, spreading the field, off-ball movement, ball patterns, communication, along with free hits and corners.
