Cochrane Field Hockey


Cochrane Field Hockey


We have been following the Alberta relaunch strategy closely in hopes of having a modified spring season. Due to the provincial restrictions and timelines we unfortunately will be canceling the Calgary Junior Field Hockey, Cochrane Field Hockey, Chestermere Field Hockey, Red Deer Field Hockey and Airdrie Field Hockey seasons.  We will also be cancelling all Community Funstix programs.  We are disappointed to not have field hockey this spring but will continue to make the safety and well being of our members and their family our top priority.

 

We have been in contact with our merchant accounts and full refunds for all programs are scheduled to start May 16th, 2020. If it becomes safe to do so we would love to run summer camps, clinics and other programs.  Please fill in our summer program survey to help us build our program: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P26JRDQ

 

While the restrictions continue please check out some of our new resources we are building on our website;

Field Hockey Alberta





Interested in trying the exciting sport of field hockey? There is no age limit to when you can start! Field hockey is one of the most popular in the world so there must be something great about it!

Field hockey is a non-contact game of possession, elimination, and tackling.

Players in this class will learn the rules of the game, proper grip and posture, ball and stick control, how to receive, trap, pass and dribble the ball and positioning. There will be fun games and a scrimmage to help reinforce the skills learned.  

 

Cochrane Rockies (ages 10-14) are back for spring 2020! This league focuses on basic skill development while introducing team tactics. Participants will be provided with one practice a week, followed by weekly games. League division will be determined by the number of registrants. U12 format is 7 v 7 and U15 is 6 v 6.

 

**Please note: There are 3 age groups, U12-Coed, U15 Girls and U15 Boys.  Cochrane players will practice together as a whole and will split for league games and festivals. 

 

New (first year) athletes will receive a t-shirt, socks and stick with registration! Athletes will need shorts, shoes suitable for running on turf (NOT cleats) and water bottle. Mouth and shin guards must be worn at all times while players are participating in games or practice drills.

 

Practices will be held once a week at Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Center on Mondays, 6:00 - 7:00 pm, starting April 6th, 2020 and running until June 27, 2020. Games will be held at Hawkings Field at the University of Calgary on Sundays (with occasional Saturdays) beginning May 3rd. Spring program also consists of two full-day festivals. More details on the spring program to come!
