Spring League Program for Kindergarten (born 2012)

The aim of the U6 program is to introduce basic skills of field hockey whilst having fun.  We keep the groups small so that the players have many opportunities to touch the ball.  Many small games will be played to introduce basic skills of field hockey.  The focus at this age is on fun, movement and safety.

Uniform: A t-shirt and socks will be provided that you can keep. Please wear black shorts.
