The game of field hockey requires players to have sport specific skills, as well as athletic attributes. Working on becoming an athlete can be a very significant aspect of the game. Field hockey requires speed, quickness, explosive power, as well as strong aerobic endurance. A solid aerobic endurance base will help a field hockey player with the repetitive series of high intensity movements and exercise required to play at a high level.
Explosive power and short bursts of quickness is required in field hockey to play at a high level. Our program helps field hockey players not only become better athletes, but become better field hockey players.
