Hopkinton Youth Sports Association
Grade 3-6 Girls Field Hockey
HYSA is excited to support Hopkinton youth field hockey. This program is for girls in grades three through six. HYSA offers field hockey both spring (skill development) and fall (traditional) seasons.
Our spring season is an in-town league offered as an introduction to the sport of field hockey, including history, rules, and game concepts. Skills covered will include dribbling, passing, dodging, shooting, defense, and the importance of ball movement and team play in game situations. Coaches will reinforce the importance of sportsmanship during scrimmages, and most importantly, have fun!
Our fall season is our travel program where we play neighboring youth teams from towns up to one-half hour away. Field hockey skills will continue to be coached during practices, but the game itself will be our best teacher. Experimentation, creativity, and independent thinking will be encouraged. And as always, fun will be the name of the game!
Both spring and fall field hockey programs are scheduled not to conflict with HYSA softball and soccer, allowing girls to participate in either or both sports. Research supports the importance of sport sampling and the detrimental effects of early sport specialization. HYSA encourages multi-sport players with the goal of building healthy kids now and future athletes for life.
Are you ready to experience the joy and spirit that is field hockey? Register early as space is limited.
