The Washington Wolves “Rec Squad” is a new 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.
The goals of the program are to:
- Teach players the basic rules and concepts of field hockey
- Develop their fundamental skills, such as dribbling, passing, and general ball movement
- 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
This fall and winter, because of the pandemic, our rec program will be held in small groups at local parks and fields in the area. If you are interested in joining a group or creating one with neighbors and friends, please contact us using the form below. We will explore all options in the Spring and determine whether it is safe to return to a bigger group. Thank you.
