The Washington Wolves “Rec Squad” is a recreational program that develops the skills and field hockey knowledge of players in elementary and middle school. For most children, field hockey is a sport that they are only exposed to in middle school or, for many, in high school. This recreational program is designed to introduce the sport to girls and boys in elementary and middle school, with the hope that they will learn and love the sport as much as our coaches do.
This spring, we will be hosting a 10-week OUTDOOR recreational program that will include 45 minutes of skills and 45 minutes of games. We will also hold TWO play days, one in the middle of the program on April 9, and one on the final session of the rec program on May 21.
For spring, we will break the groups up in the same way the club does for age divisions. For new players, we may have you train with a younger age group, and for advanced players, we may have you play with an older group so that you can get the most out of this experience and learn at a pace that matches skill level.

WOLVES SUMMER CAMP AND CLINICS WILL START IN JUNE 2022
Our summer camp is back and this time we will also be adding clinics for players looking to work on specific skills during a busy summer of field hockey. The camps and clinics will run from June – August 2022, with camps specific to the goals of our age groups. We will have a camp for players looking to learn the sport or work on their skills for kids from 1st – 7th grade, and a high school prep camp for rising 8th graders – 12th graders. Learn more.
