This winter, Beyond Sticks will be running three non-tryout play options. In partnership with Southeast Storm, we are again running Saturday and Sunday indoor Development Academy at the National Cathedral School in Washington, DC. These will be indoor field hockey programs with a focus on learning and improving indoor technique and teaching team concepts. Indoor field hockey is a fast-paced game and allows each player to have more touches on the ball. It is a very different game than the outdoor version, and is an excellent way to improve stick skills. All play is on indoor court surface.
The second winter Development Academy option is our turf Clinic @ Dulles Sportsplex in Sterling, VA. This program will run Friday evenings and will focus on the outdoor field hockey game. We will play on turf and work to maintain and perfect our outdoor skills during the winter.
