Welcome to the LOUYAA Field Hockey Fall Clinic. Our goals for the fall
program are for the players learn the skills needed to be a good field
hockey player & continue to improve those skills at every practice. This
program is a skill based program and groups will be based on experience.
We will scrimmage each other when appropriate, however will not play
games against other leagues, since they do not have fall programs.
practice days, players need to wear comfortable clothes, running shoes
or cleats, mouth guards and shin guards. Shin guards and mouth
guards are mandatory at all times. Players without them will not be
allowed to participate. We do keep extra shin guards with the
equipment and encourage players to borrow a pair if they have forgotten
theirs. We also stock mouth guards which can be purchased for $2. If a
player comes to practice without a mouth guard, one will be issued and
the $2 fee will be charged. Other items which are useful include: water
bottle, hair ties, sweats or a jacket in cooler weather.
the first day of practice, your daughter will need to complete and bring
the following form to practice:

adult coach who will decide if practice will occur. If practice needs to
be cancelled, we will try to notify you by e-mail about an hour before
the start time. When in doubt, call one of the adults above.

moved to a safe place until parents can arrive to pick them up. It is
important to complete the Emergency Information sheet and return it to
us ASAP so that we have contact information.
Please note we do not leave the playing field until all the players
are picked up and request that rides are punctual.
