CALGARY JUNIOR FIELD HOCKEY FAQs

Q: What equipment is required?
A: Athletes are required to wear a mouth guard and shin pads during practices and games.  An indoor field hockey stick is also required and can be purchased or rented from FHA for the season, and can be ordered online during registration.  

T-shirts, shorts and athletic pants are recommended for games and practices.  All participants will be provided with a jersey for games and socks. Running shoes or indoor field hockey court shoes are also required.

Q: Can I rent an indoor stick?
A: Yes, they are $5.00 for the season from FHA go to the registration link.

Q: Where can I purchase an indoor field hockey stick?
A: Be sure you purchase an INDOOR stick that is appropriately sized for your child. A stick that is too large creates improper body positioning and makes it harder to learn and harder to break bad habits down the road.

We recommend three locations to purchase indoor sticks:

LONG TERM HOCKEY DEVELOPMENT (LTHD) We are mapping our programming to support the Long Term Athlete Development plan (LTAD) and the Long Term Hockey Development Plan (LTHD).

Supporting these evidence based protocols in sport helps our athletes and coaches develop and engage in sport with age appropriate skill requirements and fundamental physical literacy skills.

Children aged 11 to 14 fall across two stages of learning and skill acquisition:

Stage 3 - Learning to Train (Ages 9-12 males, 8-11 females)

In this stage, attention focuses on building the athlete’s foundational movement skills and begins to expand the repertoire of field hockey basics.

Participation in multiple physical activities and sports is still recommended.

 

Stage 4 - Training to Train (Ages 12-16 males, 11-15 females)

The major focus of this stage is on the consolidation and implementation of the basic skills of field hockey and the use of decision-making skills.

The athletes may play to win and do their best, but they still need to focus more time on skill training and physical development over competition. This approach is critical to the development of top performers and maintaining activity for the long-term.
