Local Field Hockey Private Clubs

We aggregated helpful information about local field hockey programs. We don't endorse any particular program but encourage each player to find a program which is a good fit and will inspire a love of field hockey! 

Playing on a Field Hockey Club 
Field Hockey clubs typically have two different programs (1) Travel Team (2) Academy.  Players must tryout for travel teams and it is a serious commitment with practices during the week and tournaments on the weekend.  Travel can be an amazing experience for players who are really connected to the sport. Academy is a low commitment program. Tryouts are not required. Practices are usually once per week and are coached like a clinic. Academy is a great option for players who play other sports during the off season and looking to keep skills fresh. Most clubs have both programs available.  Players should choose a club with a coaching style that is a good fit for the player and a schedule that is convenient. Otherwise it can become a stressful situation! Our program strives to help players find the passion and love for the sport and the club experience should not be different.  

Travel teams are split by age. Some clubs start their programs at U10 which is open for players younger than 10. Others offer U12 which is open for players younger than 12 and also includes U10 players. All clubs offer U14, U16 and U19 for aspiring high school and college bound players. Travel for all teams is generally modest with most games played locally in Connecticut. The exception are the top/premier teams (U14+) which occasionally travel out of state. 

Winter field hockey is played indoors and games are played in a 6v6 format. An indoor stick and glove are required. Spring field hockey is played outdoors in a 7v7 format. Players use their outdoor stick and the same equipment as the fall season. Ridgefield players have enjoyed playing with each of the following clubs listed below.
