What our Families are Saying...

"Incredible leadership with a focus on growing and empowering coaches and athletes through community building, teamwork,

and field hockey!"

"Needham youth field hockey is an incredible program. This is our first year and both of my girls absolutely love it. As a lifetime athlete, I love seeing my girls engaged in a program that teaches teamwork and girl power. My daughters are in 3rd grade and the exposure to both younger and older players as well as the amazing high school coaches is so valuable. I have nothing but glowing reviews and am so thankful to have found such a great environment for our girls! They came home after their first practice saying “I LOVE field hockey!”

And that hasn’t changed all season!"

"NYFH does a great job with the girls. They teach them friendship, teamwork and a lot of positive uplifting messages. The girls have fun learning field hockey skills."

"My daughter loves the NYFH program and has learned so much about the sport. I love the mission and spirit of the program and highly recommend to anyone with a daughter interested in FH or learning a new team sport!"

"Joining Needham youth field hockey

has been one of the best decisions we could’ve made for our daughter! My daughter has grown socially and athletically through this program  and is always excited for the next season to start! Despite having a large roster, the coaches make it a point to know each girls name and make them feel special! We cannot wait for the

years to come with NYFH!!!"
