Program for Grades 5-8

Our Fall Program for Grades 5-8 is an awesome developmental program for all skill levels.

The goal of the program is to develop New Canaan's middle school players of competitive field hockey through a professionally developed curriculum in a supportive environment. Our program teaches skills and strategy, sportsmanship, teamwork, and communication.

Players are evaluated at the end of August and placed into teams; coaches reserve the right to move players between teams as players learn and grow during the season. The nine-or-ten week season runs through the last week of October (Grades 5-6) or the first week in November (Grades 7-8) and culminates in a Jamboree and the legendary End of Season Banquet at Saxe Middle School.

Players meet 2x weekly (Grades 5-6) or 3x weekly (Grades 7-8) to practice with their team and coaches at Waveny Water Tower Turf; they play a home or away game against another town's youth program on either Saturday or Sunday. The fee includes an official NCYFH practice pinney, plus a team uniform (jersey, skort, socks.)
