This three-hour workshop will be held at George Mason University on Saturday, May 18 from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET. As the game of field hockey evolves, so do the skills required to play. This workshop is the perfect opportunity to focus on the correct teaching of the key technical skills necessary to succeed in preparation for the upcoming season. It’s also a great way to network and collaborate with fellow coaches. Coaches of all levels are welcome and will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The focus of this workshop will be on teaching skills in a developmentally-appropriate way. Technical instruction will include basic grips, detecting and correcting errors, ball control, passing and receiving, forehand and backhand skills, aerials, and more. New and experienced head and assistant coaches of youth, club, high school and collegiate athletes will be well-prepared to take their athletes and teams to the next level.
