HYSA Field Hockey Programs:
2022 will have a Fall Season!

HYSA is excited to support Hopkinton youth field hockey.  When possible HYSA offers field hockey programs both spring (skill development) and fall (traditional) seasons.

Our spring season is an in-town field hockey camp offered to girls in grades 3-8.  All skill levels from beginner to advanced are welcome.  Those players new to the sport will learn forehand and reverse stick ball handling, dribbling, and push passing; more experienced players will be coached in advanced skills like the reverse-stick sweep, reverse-stick spin, and drag flick.  During scrimmages players will apply and share their newly acquired skills in game-time situations.  Coaches will reinforce the importance of sportsmanship and team building at all times, and most importantly, have fun!


Our fall season is a more traditional travel program and is for girls in grades 3-6.  During the fall we play neighboring youth teams typically playing in up to six jamborees over the season.  Field hockey skills will continue to be coached during practices.  Game-time creativity, independent thinking, experimentation, and risk taking will be encouraged.  At this (and all levels) player development along with safety and clean play will be our primary goals.  And as always, fun will be the name of the game!


Event dates will be Sundays probably.  A big thank you to Jen Sanborn and the HS FH team for helping out this year!!!

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.
