This co-ed program introduces the sport of field hockey where basic skills are taught through FUN drills and mini-games. Players will work to develop teamwork, cross train for ice hockey, fine-tune hand-eye coordination and accuracy! The Funstix program is based on the fundamentals of field hockey. It is designed to introduce kids to the non-contact, fast-paced, skillful and above all, FUN sport of Field Hockey.
Practices will be held once a week at the soccer field at Westglen School on Tuesdays. (Time is tentatively scheduled for 5:30-6:30 pm.) The season will start April 30th and run until June 22nd. There will be two festivals in June: Red Deer and Calgary.
Athletes will need shin pads, socks, water bottle, and mouth guards.
Cost of the Didsbury Funstix Spring program is $60 if renting a stick and $100 if you'd like a new stick with registration. Both costs include the Field Hockey Alberta membership of $40.
