Fall League

Fall is the primary season for field hockey in the United States. We have Saturday games in September and October with two practices a week. We have divisions for grades 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8. Younger players are welcome to play with our partner Great Falls Lacrosse and Field Hockey. Registration opens in June.

Late Winter Program

Outdoor pick-up, small games, umpire and coach training in February. 

Spring Season

We have a short spring season with games on Saturdays during April and May. Practice one night a week. Registration opens in early February.


Pick-up games and light workouts in preparation for high school play.  Also, umpire and coach training.

Parent Engagement

The success of all players depends of significant parent participation – especially for our youngest athletes. Parent engagement in all aspects of our program is crucial for the cognitive, emotional, and physical development of all players.

We are fundamentally a youth development program. With no competitive play on the horizon, this is a great time to work on a broad range of physical, mental, and social skills development. Our primary concerns are character and physical activity. Field hockey is the tool we use to achieve these goals. And it is a real bonus and joy when our program ignites a passion for the sport among the players.


Field Hockey Umpiring

USA Field Hockey is starting virtual training for junior umpires on Monday, July 20th. The link below has all of the details and registration information.  Unfortunately we cannot promise any games at this time.
