Teamwork & Sportsmanship: The Panthers United program promotes sportsmanship for all players on and off the field. All players are expected to show good sportsmanship at all times during play, showing respect to referees, opponents, coaches and their team mates. It is our philosophy for teams to unite and play as a team. This is accomplished through our coaching styles which promote team bonding and team building skills.
Teams For All Ages: The Panthers United Program offers recreational and competitive teams for all ages. There are teams for ages 6-19. While the Winter Indoor, Spring outdoor and summer are all grouped by age, the fall teams are by grades.
Developmental & Competitive Teams: The Panthers offer teams for all skill levels. Beginners are welcomed and encouraged through instruction and fundamental drills and games. Competitive teams compete all over Virginia, Maryland and travel to Pennsylvania twice a year. The fall season is treated like a true middle school field hockey team with a full competitive schedule for 4 teams.
Year Round Field Hockey: The Panthers United program offers field hockey year round for the casual player to the more competitive player. The fall season the middle school teams play a full schedule against schools that have field hockey teams. The winter indoor program becomes a fast paced exciting smaller game for all ages. The spring outdoor season offers smaller sided games for all. The summer season prepares our players for their fall seasons either with Panthers or their High School teams and is a more relaxed season.
