Empire United Field Hockey Academy
Our Academy provides skill instruction and the opportunity to use these skills in small game situations. This program trains once each week. Instructors are college coaches from the Rochester area who are certified through USA Field Hockey's coach education process, and hold Level I or II coaching certifications to ensure skills are taught thoroughly and professionally. This program is a great continuation of the fall high school season, and allows athletes to continue to move indoors to our full-size indoor field to practice and develop their skills without the cold and snow that November and December bring to the Rochester area.
Academy is open to everyone on a first-come, first-served basis, and does not require registering for a tryout for our travel programs. Open to all ages and skill levels, it is also an excellent choice for athletes planning to pursue Empire United's Select Team opportunities in the new year, allowing them to keep their skills and fitness levels sharp in preparation for our travel teams. The program cost is $230.
Academy is open to 9-10th grade and 11-12 grade athletes.
