Over the past 6 weeks, 79 Field Hockey, kicked off the first ever youth field hockey league here in the Temecula Valley. We had over 40 boys and girls, ages 5 - 14, participate. It was exciting to see the growth and development of each of the individuals who were introduced to the sport through skills, drills and game play.
Olympian, Tiffany Snow Huisman, Coach Victoria Scarth and the outstanding, volunteer staff, made up of local high school field hockey players have thoroughly enjoyed introducing the local youth to this amazing sport. Thank you to all who participated, and we look forward to seeing you all on the field in the future.
For the love of the game
On January 4th, the 79ers hosted a USA Field Hockey Discover Clinic at Birdsall Park. We introduced over 40 local boys and girls to the sport while we ran them through a 90-minute introductory clinic. The clinic provided boys and girls with a fun, active and learner-centered approach to the game. Each child went home with their own stick, balls, shinguards, USA Field Hockey t-shirt, Bag and a USA Field Hockey Membership. We are looking forward to offering another session soon!
79 Field Hockey was created with the goal to grow the game and provide another opportunity for our local youth, here in the Temecula Valley. We have come a long way in just a short time. In December 2016, we started our program with just 4 local athletes. Since 2016, we have had the opportunity to introduce the great sport of field hockey to hundreds of our local youth through our training programs, school presentations and free clinics.
This 2018, our Fall Tuesday Night Training program has made big strides. We have the opportunity to work with over 50 athletes ages 5-14 weekly. Each session, we introduce a variety of fundamentals, tactics, small game play and lots of fun.
We love it here in Temecula and feel that the sky's the limit in growing this amazing sport. We look forward to seeing you on the field soon.
