Total Dutch Field Hockey Rising Stars Program
Total Dutch Field Hockey is excited to announce the formation of the new Rising Stars Program.
The program is now open for players in 1st - 6th Grade. The Rising Stars is for committed junior Field Hockey players looking to build a technical foundation and grow as a player to prepare for a Field Hockey career at the travel or premier levels.
What makes the Rising Stars different?
Players at a very early age are pushed into high level clubs where the focus of the club may not be on long term development but immediate results. The eventual outcome is a high turnover rate for the teams, with coaches’ attention centered on recruiting better players instead of the development of their existing ones. Rising Stars takes away the stress of short-term focused programs and teaches players to love the game of Field Hockey while pursuing their maximum potential.
We work with players who are committed, who want to improve and learn the sport of Field Hockey, and who are excited to be here! Our focus is on creating a positive growth opportunity for your player through character building and teaching the building blocks of the game to make sure they have the foundation necessary to succeed in the future.
Who are the Total Dutch Staff?
The Total Dutch Staff, who have Field Hockey coaching credentials from the United States and/or from abroad, coached and trained area players that have gone on to play at collegiate-level. These are the same coaches who are working on the Rising Stars Program. The common denominator in any success player is a strong foundation developed at an early age. By having our professional staff build the Rising Stars, we hope to have a positive influence in the Field Hockey community for years to come.
What can I expect to see from the Rising Stars?
The Rising Stars will provide a 6 month training program that will cover all aspects of training. Parents are included in the process, making sure expectations are managed and the direction for the player is focused on the long term. All training will take place at our indoor and outdoor training facility located in Somerset, NJ. The Spring sessions will emphasize technical skill development and Speed & Agility training. The Winter indoor program will continue with the technical development on the indoor turf. The Rising Stars will incorporate small sided scrimmages as well as take part in games. Players will be encouraged to test their new skills without fear of failure. Your child will become a more confident player.
What is included in the Rising Stars?
