New to Grande Prairie this year, we will be offering a Grande Prairie spring league! Spring league will consist of Funstix (ages 6-9) and Grande Prairie Stars (ages 10-14). Practices will be held at the Leisure Center Soccer Pitch, once a week on Tuesday evenings from 5pm - 6pm. Practices will start on April 2nd and run until June 22nd. There will also be two festivals in June. Please see the spring schedule below.
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. Older players will focus on basic skill development while introducing team tactics. All skills are taught through fun drills and weekly mini-games.
T-shirts will be provided. Athletes will need shin pads, socks, water bottle, and mouth guards.
Cost of the Grande Prairie Spring program is $135. This includes the membership cost for Field Hockey Alberta.
