Youth Field Hockey At A Beautiful Venue
Here at Michael & Son SportsPlex at Dulles, we are huge advocates of providing personalized and tailored training and tutoring that resonate with children. However, the content of our youth Field Hockey program is certainly aided by the surroundings.
Our indoor surfaces don’t only remove the threat of games being called off or becoming potentially dangerous. The flat surfaces also allow kids to develop at the fastest rate and enjoy a level of play that can’t be matched elsewhere. From training to league games, enjoyment is evident in every play.
Ultimately, we want kids to develop the same level of love for the game as we have. Thanks to the winning combination of our quality coaching and stunning facilities, you’ll see that this is very much possible.
More Than Just A Game
While our programs focus on kids field hockey drills and leagues, we also appreciate the need for flexibility. We also offer multi-sport camps and summer camps that allow your daughter to enjoy the benefits of youth field hockey along with the rewards of many other sports.
