AGE DIVISIONS
 
Sticklettes: Kindergarten, First, & Second Graders
DAA runs an in-house program.
Games are 6 v. 6 (no goalie) on a condensed field, with a coach from each team on the field as an instructional referee.  Davidsonville teams are limited to 10 players on a first-come first-served basis. Additional teams may be added pending the availability of committed coaches (that’s you, parents!). Two practices per week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, until games begin on the same evenings. Games and practices are held at either Davidsonville Park or Davidsonville Elementary School.
 
Pee-Wee: Third & Fourth Graders 
Games are 7 v. 7 (6 field players and 1 goalie) on a condensed field, with two paid referees. Games are typically on weekends. Please note that a few weekday games and several weekends with both Saturday and Sunday games are to be expected. Two practices per week, on days determined by the coach and the Commissioner.  Games are played at various fields throughout the county, with home games and practices at Davidsonville Park.

Basic field hockey rules and skills are taught at this level. Ability varies widely at this age in field hockey, so the focus is on skill-building, teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun.

Practice and Game Locations

Our home field for Sticklette and Pee-Wee games will be at DAA Park. Middies and Juniors (and oftentimes Pee-Wees) will play all games at various turf fields in Anne Arundel County. We will practice at Davidsonville Park and Davidsonville Elementary School.
 
Volunteers

Our entire program runs on volunteers!  We need coaches and assistant coaches for all levels for the fall 2016 field hockey season. This is a great and fun way to support our Girls at DAA!  Contact Julie Barkat at for additional information.

 

If you have never played or coached field hockey, you’re not alone!  We pair novice and experienced coaches together, and there will be a coaches clinic before practices begins.
 
We also need field liners and team parents.
