FIELD HOCKEY

OBGC FIELD HOCKEY 2019

Welcome to the home of Olney Field Hockey. The 2019 season will be the 21st year for Olney Field Hockey and has been the program that introduced many of Montgomery County’s successful field hockey players including All County, All State, Futures and Division I/II/III college players.Field hockey is one of the most popular high school sports within the Metro area, and there are very few programs that support youth interested in learning the sport.

The Olney Field Hockey program was created to offer youth the opportunity to learn and play the sport of field hockey. We want to be the best recreational program in the area focused on promoting and educating players, coaches and families in the skill, knowledge, sportsmanship and love of field hockey.  We are working towards growing the game of field hockey, so join us!

We offer many opportunities for new and experienced players…

In addition to our Olney FH House league games for 5th-8th grade players, we offer a Clinic for our future players (K-4thgrade).  Our programs are open to ALL youth.

Olney FH provides uniforms and specialized goalie gear. Players are required to have a field hockey stick, mouth guard, reversible shin guards, white and black socks and field shoes (cleats and/or sneakers). ***We are requiring all players in our House League to wear goggles this year for games and practices. The goggles are the same that are worn by lacrosse players; these are worn to protect players from sticks and balls while in play.

Coaches/Volunteers:

We are always looking for volunteers to get involved with our program; with increased interest and player participation, we need coaches to field our growing teams. 

Clinic and practice instruction will be provided by an area HS Field Hockey Coach. Parents will be asked to volunteer to coach during games.

OBGC provides NYSCA (National Youth Sports Coaches Alliance) certification training and encourages training through US Field Hockey. If you are interested in coaching or assistant coaching please indicate so when you register.
