    Spring 2017 session dates are as follows:

    The cost is $100. Sticks are provided to those who need to borrow them, and we also have sticks for sale (contact Kaitlin). Players will be expected to bring their own mouth guards and shin guards.




    * If you cannot make the entire two hour block -- or all session dates -- we are happy to have you for as much as you can make. Please contact Kaitlin if you have additional questions.

    2016/17 WINTER INDOOR LEAGUE - High School and Middle School

    Registration is now closed



    DFHC Winter League registration and will only remain open until November 26th. ONCE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED THERE WILL BE NO PLAYER ADDITIONS. Middle and a High School leagues will play in separate sessions. High school will generally play Saturdays and Middle School will play Sundays. Players will be assigned to game times before the first sessions and will receive an email with their assignments. Leagues will begin the weekend of December 2/3 (See the website calendar for a complete list of dates). Games will be played at Kent Denver in the Upper School Gym.


    To familiarize yourself with the equipment and the pace of the indoor game, which is played on a court surface, great footage can be found at http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Field-Hockey/TEAM-USA/US-Indoor/Video



    • An Indoor stick is highly recommended but your regular stick will do.  Note that the bottoms of all sticks will need to be taped to prevent damage to the basketball court. 
    • Shin Guards (Required)
    • Mouth Guard (Required)
    • Both right and left hand field hockey gloves are recommended but not required. Indoor FH has your hands on the court often and the pace of play means your hands take a beating! 
    • Indoor Field Hockey Shoes if you have them (if not, court shoes)  
    • Water Bottle - It is very important to hydrate!

    Indoor FH equipment can be found on the Harrow, Dita and Longstreth websites.

    Middle School Team Members:

    Equipment Requirements for team members

    For practices: footwear appropriate for grass fields, field hockey shin guards (not soccer shin guards – they are too small and will not be permitted by the officials), a mouth guard, and a stick. Goggles are not required until high school and are up to the discretion of players and parents at the middle school level. We recommend players have goggles so that they are accustomed to wearing them when it becomes mandatory in high school.

    • For games: The girls will need all of the things listed for practic es and will be provided a team reversible jersey (which they can keep) and will need to have a black skort (you can find these at any sporting goods store), a pair of black field hockey socks and a pair of white field hockey socks, without stripes


    The following is a list of resources for field hockey equipment: Harrow

    Sports (located in Denver), Dita Field Hockey (a major field hockey equipment company located in Colorado Springs), and Longstreth Field Hockey.




    The Denver Field Hockey Club typically participates in 2 National travel tournaments a year. Additional national tournaments may be added. Travel teams are chosen from our High Performance members.
