Youth Field Hockey

Next Session will be Fall 2023. 

Indoor field hockey is considered a different sport from traditional outdoor field hockey and uses different sticks, balls and team sizes.  Played on a hard surface with boards, it is excellent for developing quick reflexes and hand eye coordination and makes for a thrilling game!
 
Participants will focus on learning and refining their indoor skills through fun drills and mini games. There will also be opportunities for tactical development and game play.
 
Mouth guards and shin guards are mandatory. As well, all participants are required to provide their own indoor field hockey sticks, or may rent them through Field Hockey Alberta.
The program at the University is partnered with Calgary Junior Field Hockey and Field Hockey Alberta. Participants will also be required to submit program/membership fees through Field Hockey Alberta registration portal:
