Panthers United Field Hockey
Our fall season focuses on our younger players. Most of our high school age players play for their JV or Varsity high school team and come back to Panthers for the remaining three seasons. Our most competitive middle school players play select field hockey (white, blue, gold) for Panthers in the fall. These players are in grades 5-8. Our CUBS program is designed to meet the needs of boys and girls in K-5th grade. High school age players not playing for their home school team are also eligible to play. Please discuss with Betsy if this describes your daughter’s situation.
Winter Indoor Season
Our winter season moves indoors. This is a great time to focus on stick work. It is fast paced and some players prefer indoor over outdoor. We practice 1 to 2 times per week depending on age and skill level. The program usually involves weekly scrimmages during practice sessions. Our more competitive players travel throughout the state on weekends for tournament play. Our top u14 team competed in the National Indoor Tournament in Richmond, VA and placed 2nd in their pool. The season starts in November and wraps up in March. In the past, indoor was open to players in Middle School and High School. We are working on opening the program up to k-12 if there is enough interest and we can secure gym space. Please let us know if you are interested!
Spring field hockey is played on a smaller field. The format is typically 7 v 7. Players wanting to compete in games will participate in tournaments throughout the state. Spring field hockey is open to players U12 - U19 and includes weekly practices (typically 1-3 depending on age/skill) and scrimmages.
Summer season consists of practices, scrimmages, and tournament opportunities for players K-12. We also offer skill specific clinic, camps, and pick up games. Our goal is to get everyone ready for a successful fall season! Most game play is a 7 v 7 format regardless of age. Pick up games are often played 11 v 11 (like fall).
