Try Hockey For Free
Presented by Louisville Field Hockey Academy
Since I started playing field hockey I have always looked for more ways to get involved and play. As I climbed the ranks of The USA Field Hockey Pipeline I have noticed that our New England Region has way fewer numbers than other regions such as Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey. I can't help but think how many talented players from New England have potential to grow in this sport, but might never pick up a field hockey stick.
This is why I will be offering various FREE clinics in New England as well as Louisville, KY - the two places I call home, for players that have Never played field hockey before.
-Offer kids of any age the possibility to be introduced to the game by high-level coaches without the worry of purchasing equipment that might not be used consistently.
-Host a high school clinic immediately following the free clinic so new players can watch the high schoolers play, and to put the registration fees directly towards field rentals, and equipment purchases.
How to Help:
I will be accepting stick donations from any player that has an extra stick laying around.
I will be accepting donations from local businesses that would like to help us raise money for turf rentals, equipment, and possibly a fund to raffle off the registration fee to a summer field hockey camp that is run by a local club team/program.
If you think you would be willing to help out in any way please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
