COVID19 Update for IFHCK Field Hockey

All of us at IFHCK are thinking about you and miss playing field hockey. This is an unprecedented time in the world as we all face this global health challenge together. We have decided that the best thing right now is to protect the health and well-being of our athletes and IFHCK family.  With that said, and the recent social distancing guidelines being extended nationwide, we have decided to postpone the Spring Season till May.  

We are monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates.  We wanted to say a big thank you to our medical/health care practitioners, emergency service providers, essential workers, police officers, firefighters, local government workers and everyone doing their part to make sure we are safe.

Be safe and keep practicing at home!  Our coaches have been sending messages via our Instagram, check them out at @_ifhck

 Rise & Premier ​​​​​​​Indoor Field Hockey Clinic ​​

​​​​​​​​​​ IFHCK Winter Indoor Clinic​​ 

We are exctied to announce an indoor clinic for players who want to learn how to play indoor field hockey.  Indoor hockey is just like outdoor field hockey or soccer-equivalent to futsal, but on a smaller field. The game is much smaller, faster, and more controlled because of the limited space and the ability to rebound the ball off the sideboards. We play on sportcourt/hard wood floors.  Indoor field hockey teaches players great stick and ball skills that help further develop their overall abilities.

Stick+Gloves- The biggest differences are that the end of the indoor stick is skinnier and the overall weight is much lighter. In addition, indoor field players are required to have *Left" hand indoor glove at all times. No changes to the goal keeper equipment.

Pitch/Rules: Due to the pitch size in indoor being much smaller than the outdoor pitch less players are on the court at a time. In indoor there are five players plus a goalie for a total of six players. Most of the rules are similar to outdoor field hockey with exception to but not limited to; no jabbing, no hitting, no lifiting unless scoring and plating within the side boards.
