3 Ways to Prevent Field Hockey Injuries:

1. Warm-up!
It is incredibly important to warm-up before every practice and game. Doing a dynamic warm-up wakes up your muscles and increases your heart rate, letting your body know it’s time to start playing field hockey!

2. Cool-down!
The cool-down is just as important as the warm-up! Stretching after an intense practice or game helps prevent cramping and lactic acid build-up in your muscles.

3. Rest and Recover!
Allowing your mind and body to take a day off is necessary for your performance with any sport. Our bodies are not meant to be on the go 7 days a week. Make sure to take at least 1 day off to help restore and rest physically and mentally!

High School Indoor League: This will be Koa’s 4th annual High School Indoor League! Athletes can join with a group of teammates from their HS Team, or they can join as a Free Agent and be put onto one of Koa’s house teams with other free agents. The Indoor League will be traditional indoor rules, which is a great way to improve your skills in the off-season. This is also a great way for a HS Team to bond during the off-season, and improve both mentally and physically during the Winter months! Click Here for more Information!

Winter Rec League: This program is for both experienced and inexperienced players. During the Winter Rec League, players will be placed on teams, and will have both a practice and a game each Saturday. Each team will play for 1.5 hours each Saturday. They will have a 45min practice session first, and then immediately play in a game versus another team in the second 45min session. Each game will be two 20min halves with a 5min halftime.

Winter Clinics: This Winter Clinic is a weekday clinic for both experienced and beginner field hockey players. During the practice, the players will be taught the fundamental skills of field hockey. At the end of each practice, they will get to test their newly learned skills in a fun game scenario drill or in a scrimmage. All players will be divided into the appropriate age and skill level groups. Click Here for more information!
