The boys U8 program spans 2 years with boys in grades 1 & 2 playing together.
The aim of the U8 program is to introduce basic skills of field hockey whilst having fun. We keep the groups small so that players have many opportunities to touch the ball. Many modified games will be played to introduce basic skills of field hockey. The focus at this age is on fun, movement and safety. Our goal is to help your child develop athletic movement skills and learn field hockey specific skills..
