RISE coaches will continue to provide private and semi-private lessons at neighborhood fields this fall. All of the coaches have played college field hockey and will focus each training session on specific skills tailored to each player's needs. Coaches are very active in the sessions, playing right next to the athlete in order to challenge them. 

Lesson fees will be determined on the number of athletes in each session.

Please contact Barb Steffen to find out more details.
