Off-Season Workouts/Skill Development

The season begins in the off-season, what you do now will define you and our team in the fall.  The off-season is to develop and refine your individual skill and physical ability, the season is to utilize this skill and physical ability to be the best team member you can.  Whether that be as a starter, a sub, or even a practice player, you have a role being on a team.  That role is doing and finding your best despite the odds and helping your team find solutions, not excuses.  We strongly encourage all of you to play other sports in the off-season!  While we would love for you to fall in love with the sport of field hockey, we understand that this may not be your “top” sport.  That’s ok.  We’re not expecting you to devout all of your time to field hockey, but we are expecting you to care to get better if you care to sign up.
Club/Clinic opportunities can be found on our “Summer Playing Opportunities Page” found above on our home tab.

Attention high school players, Columbia is again offering their summer strength and conditioning program with sport specific training available to all students entering grades 8th – 12th held in the CHS weight room and gym.  Mondays and Wednesdays from 8am – 9am, beginning July 6th, will be designated time slots for our field hockey teams.  However, if you cannot make this time slot please contact Coach Libardi @ libardith@egcds.org to attend a different session.

Open “turf” will begin after the 4th of July, with more details to follow.  Our youth program is on break until our summer camp in August and then our fall program will begin late August.  There tentatively will be a one day clinic offered some time in July, stay tuned for more details and follow us on Facebook for up-to-date happenings at Columbia field hockey.
