Spring/Fall: The Burke Athletic Club field hockey program is conducted on Sunday evenings, 6:15-8:00. Our Spring/Fall program was established for grades 3-8. We focus on a combination of skills training and scrimmages. We want to make sure our athletes understand the right way to play. Each group is coached by adults and high school and club players working with the younger field hockey players.
Goalkeeper Training: TBA. Please let us know if you have a goalkeeper for the youth program.
A word about Friend Requests: Players are generally grouped by designated school (the school that is named in the registration) and grade level. With the exception of our Elite Teams, which may have other playing opportunities, all players of the same grade will be at the same field each night. There are no carpool concerns within a grade level. Our home fields are at Lake Braddock Secondary School. Playing field hockey provides the opportunity to gain skills, make new friends, and learn teamwork. We hope that the girls have the goal of playing field hockey in high school.
Our sessions include drills and instruction as well as scrimmages.
The uniform kit is $22 at Burke Sporting Goods. It includes the t-shirt and reversible for our program. We use the same kit from season to season, so if you already have one, there’s no need for another set. Equipment is an additional cost and can be purchased at Burke Sporting Goods or other sporting goods stores. You’ll want to make sure the sticks, shin guards, and mouthgards are the right size as these kids keep growing!
Please register early to ensure your spot in the program. During the last session it was necessary to close the registration as our number of players approached 110!
