A new youth sport has arrived in Peterborough, Ontario. The sport of field hockey, both a Pan Am Games and an Olympic Sport, is now an option for kids looking for a summer sport in Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
Maverick Field Hockey Club Founder and Head Coach is Amy Hollingsworth. Amy’s knowledge and experience of the game is long and distinguished. You can learn more about Amy’s background by clicking here.
Maverick Field Hockey conducts it’s practices on the turf fields at Fleming College and Thomas A Stewart Secondary School. Maverick is currently looking for girls and boys who are interested in learning the sport of field hockey while having a ton of fun, meeting new friends and developing new skills and traits that will benefit them on and off the field.
If you’ve followed me for any length of time on any of the social media platforms you’ll know by now I’m pretty passionate when it comes to our youth. I believe youth sports, while not necessarily the end all be all can have a very positive and long lasting effect on kids … when it’s done right and with the best interests of the kids in mind.
There’s no question in my mind that Maverick Field Hockey is committed to the long term health and well-being of the kids and families who choose to get involved and become a member of the Maverick Family.
I’m very excited and honoured to give my time and support to Maverick Field Hockey Club. It’s great to see a youth sport organization that not only talks the talk but walks the walk when it comes to truly putting kids first.
Maverick Field Hockey focuses on fun, honour, respect, empowerment, character development, leadership, trust in self and trust in others, risk taking and confidence building both on and off the field as well as physical literacy and athlete development not to mention field hockey skills and tactics that are age and stage appropriate.
It’s going to be an exciting summer here in Peterborough for youth field hockey.
