RIDGEFIELD YOUTH FIELD HOCKEY

About the Winter Indoor Program

OUR 2020 WINTER INDOOR PROGRAM REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON 11/22 at NOON!

Winter indoor field hockey is a great way for field hockey players to maintain and strengthen their hockey skills during the winter months. It is also a ton of fun! The games are fast moving and enable players to practice ball control and advanced stick skills while they play. 

The Ridgefield Youth Field Hockey Program is offering a winter indoor program in January - March. Players will warm-up followed by indoor games. 

Here is a video of what an indoor field hockey game might look like:
