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.
As we are winding down our fall program, we will be opening registration for our winter rec program on Nov. 1. This winter, we will be hosting a 9-week indoor recreational program that will include 30 minutes of skills and 30 minutes of scrimmaging. Indoor field hockey is different from outdoor in that we use boards and play on a court, so it is fast paced and very technical. Spots will be limited to the first 20 players in each age group and we will not have the flexibility to add additional players.

The goals of the indoor program are to:
- Teach players the basic rules and concepts of indoor field hockey
- Develop their fundamental skills, such as dribbling, passing, using the boards and shooting without a back swing
- Challenge them and teach them life skills and lessons, such as the values of practice, hard work, and teamwork
- Create a fun and positive environment for them to learn field hockey
Head coaches will include current and former college field hockey players from top programs, including Syracuse University, Tufts University, American University and University of Maryland to name a few. Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to develop your field hockey skills!
