2021 Winter (CJFH+FUNSTIX)


 

DID YOU KNOW that indoor field hockey is considered a different sport from traditional outdoor field hockey and uses different sticks, balls and team sizes? Played on a hard surface with boards, it is excellent for developing quick reflexes and hand eye coordination and makes for a thrilling game!

COVID REQUIREMENTS

CJFH has adopted the COVID policies of their sport partners. Athletes and coaches eligible for a COVID-19 Vaccination must present AHS Immunization Record confirming two doses of vaccines 2 WEEKS PRIOR to first practice or have a negative COVID test within 48 hrs of each practice/game.

Currently, athletes under 12 must complete COVID screen prior to every practice/game.

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.

COVID REQUIREMENTS

CJFH has adopted the COVID policies of their sport partners. Adults must present AHS Immunization Record confirming two doses of vaccines, 2 WEEKS PRIOR to first practice or have a negative COVID test within 48 hrs of each practice/game. 

Athletes under 12 must complete COVID screen prior to every practice/game. 

 

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 while making friends and building confidence.

Children aged 6 to 10 fall into the FunStix stage of learning and skill acquisition:

Stage 2 - FunStix
Boys and Girls Ages 6-10 

In the FunStix stage children need to participate in a variety of well-structured activities that develop basic field hockey skills and promote interest in physical activity. Physical literacy continues to be developed through activities involving the athlete in as many sporting activities as possible throughout the week. It is important that all children master fundamental movement skills before sport specific skills are introduced. 

Competition should involve no formal game play. Modified games, such as the FunStix mini game, should be introduced. All activities are fun-based. The focus should be on creating self-esteem within participants by reinforcing individual effort and not keeping score.

We recommend three locations to purchase indoor sticks:
