Rippers is excited to offer high performance skills clinics during the hockey “off season” for players interested in ramping up their individual skills. These are intense sessions that focus on honing advanced stick skills and hitting technique. Players are divided into 2 skill groups for better player-to-coach ratio and speed of play. The number of player registrations will be limited to keep the player-to-coach ratio optimal for individual instruction. You MUST have some field hockey experience to participate in these clinics. It is NOT for beginners.
Our winter stick skills and hitting clinic will be 6 sessions. Please note the different practice times by date as 3 practices go until 9am and 3 go until 9:30am.
*Dedicated goalie skills instruction with our awesome international goalie coach Conor Mangat is available!
Dates and Times:
Location: Ghilotti Turf Field at Redwood High School
Cost: $225 - registration opening soon!
Sessions are rain or shine! Given the winter weather, if a practice is cancelled due to severe weather, we will try to reschedule a makeup session. If we are unable to reschedule, we will credit your account for the practice, which you can use in the future.
Current USA Field Hockey Membership Required for All Players:
Due to insurance requirements, all players must be members of the USA Field Hockey Association in order to participate in practices and non-USFHA sponsored local tournaments. You must purchase your annual USFHA membership through us for $10 during registration. Memberships last for one year. Note: if your child will be participating in a regional tournament or an event sponsored by USFHA tournament, you will have to purchase a full USA Field Hockey Membership directly from the USFHA ($25 for U12 and $60 for U14-U19; please select "Golden Gate Rippers" as your club affiliation). We will let you know whether a tournament or event is sponsored by USFHA in advance.
