Koa Development Team Field Hockey (U10 – U19)

Koa’s Field Hockey Development Team

Are you an experienced player who has participated in one or more Koa Rec League seasons, and now you’re looking to be challenged and pushed to the next level? If so, the Koa Development Team is the next step in your field hockey journey!

Our Development Team is more advanced than our Rec Leagues, but not as time-consuming as our Club Teams. Our Development Teams also serve to bridge the gap between our Rec League and Club Teams. Our goal is to prepare our Development Team athletes for the skill level and playing expectations of our Club Team.

The Development Team consists of three separate seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring. Players only commit to one season at a time though! Each season is 7 weeks long. During the course of the season, our Development Team will have one-weekday practice each week, as well as 3-4 guaranteed weekend Play Days versus other local Club and Development Teams. Due to COVID, our 2021 Season will be different. Please read below for more details on the 2021 Development Team Season.

Koa’s Development Team brings together a great group of like-minded, hard-working, and driven players who want to take their game to the next level. Joining Koa’s Development Team is the best way to kick start your commitment to the sport while maintaining Koa’s central mission — having fun!

Professional Coaches & Field Hockey Staff: Koa Field Hockey has over 30+ professional coaches. Our coaches are carefully selected through an interview process, field hockey knowledge quiz and a background check. All of our Development Team coaches were top high school players, with the majority of our coaches having prior college playing experience. Each of our coaches are trained on the Koa FH coaching standards, which include the four Koa Core Values: positive, dedicated, team-first and fun. Our coaches are supported by our year-round administrative staff, who include Jen Spagnuolo, Yajaira Rivas, and Simone Vagnoni.
