Field Hockey Achievers Program
The Kirkwood Soccer Club Field Hockey Achievers Program offers programs on our beautiful Bermuda grass fields for first through eighth graders, and focuses on learning the game of field hockey in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere with plenty of opportunities to touch the ball. Our emphasis on multiple ball touches effectively builds solid stick skills, decision-making, and speed of play. Bermuda grass is an outstanding surface on which to learn the game of hockey. Both programs are a partnership with Kirkwood and the Delaware Sharks Field Hockey Club, and include a t-shirt.
