August 2015, Austin, TX – Lone Star Field Hockey, the first youth Field Hockey Club in Austin Texas, has opened online registration for its 2015 Fall Season. Signs promoting the new club can be seen at many schools around Austin. The club, which is offering training twice a week for 12 weeks for only $175, is hoping to attract girls (and boys) aged between 7 and 18 to the game of Field Hockey. No prior experience is required and training groups will be structured to accommodate both beginners and experienced players.
Most importantly we will be working on synthetic surface skills at our Sunday Practices (on Turf) as this is the cornerstone of the modern game. AstroTurf has made the game much faster and more skills-based and historically Austin girls have been at a disadvantage when playing against school teams further afield because of lack of access to this playing surface.
The Fall Program starts Sept 6th. For more information on the new Austin Field Hockey club check out : http://www.lonestarfieldhockey.com/
