Who is a good fit for PFHC?
Athletes committed to the process of increasing their level of performance will have a team to play for at PFHC. The outline below loosely defines the types of athletes that participate in our club.
2018 Spring Outdoor Travel Teams and Spring Programs
Note: 2018 try-outs took place August 16, 2017. Team configuration is subject to change based on enrollment factors (roster numbers & level of play). If you missed tryouts and would like to inquire about training opportunities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
U19 (3 total teams)
U19 Black (1): These athletes are at a minimum the top 2-3 players on their high school varsity team. They are likely well entrenched in the USFHA Futures program and have realistic aspirations or ability to play field hockey at the NCAA Division I level. These athletes should be highly athletic and have the ability to sustain a high work rate.
U19 Orange & White (2): Athletes that currently play varsity for their school team and/or rising U19 athletes that have previously played JV. These are athletes with a solid skill foundation looking to improve and compete on annual basis. They may or may not have aspirations to play in college.
U16 (3 total teams)
U16 Black (1): Athletes that play varsity for their high school team or are the top 1-2 players on their school’s JV team. They are likely well entrenched in the USFHA Futures program and have realistic aspirations to play college field hockey. These athletes should be highly athletic and have the ability to sustain a high work rate.
U16 Orange & White (2): Athletes that currently play for their high school JV team or are rising U16 athletes that previously played for their middle school. This group may have a range of experience levels, from those with a solid skill foundation to those relatively new to the game that possess an above average degree of athleticism. Regardless, they are all looking to train and compete throughout the year. These athletes may or may not have aspirations to play in college.
U14 (2 - 3 teams)
U14 Black: Athletes that currently play for their middle school or who may be younger but possess several years of experience. Relative athleticism and long term, projected potential will largely determine roster allocations across this age group.
U14 Orange & White (2): Athletes that are new or newer to the game. Some may currently play for their middle school. This group may have a range of experience and skill level. They are looking to develop their basic and foundational skills, as well as learn to apply them in a competitive setting.
U12: Athletes will have a range of experience level. Many will be new to the game or have 1-2 years of experience under their belt. The aim is to build basic skills in through drills as well as game play. There will be two sessions a week in the spring -- one with a focus on skill development and the other dedicated to small game play.
