PK, JK and Kindergarten Programs

2022 PK/JK and Kindergarten Offerings

Winter Mini Sticks - Jan/Feb of 2022

Spring Mini Sticks - Apr/May of 2022

Fall Mini Sticks - Sep/Oct of 2022

Mini Sticks is the perfect opportunity to learn the game of field hockey in a fun and informative environment.  We teach the athletes from the most basic skills and develop them to being able to play a small sided game with tons of fun sprinkled in as well!  The Fall and Spring seasons are open to three year to six year olds, but the winter session is for four to six year olds as they spend half the time developing skills and the the second half playing organized games.  It is a bit more game focused in the winter!  Most players in Mini Sticks have never played before so grab your friends and join us today!  Feel free to email with any questions.
