Apr 19 Come Try Field Hockey! *FREE*

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm | KS Gym (Room 1000) | Instructed by Emily Langevin

Come try your hand at a new sport! No experience or equipment required. All you need is comfortable clothes, athletic shoes and a bottle of water.

Field hockey is a non-contact game of possession, elimination and tackling. While its presence in Red Deer is in its infancy, field hockey is an Olympic sport, and the 2nd most played sport in the world!

Common misconceptions about Field Hockey:

  • It’s the same rules as hockey
    Nope! Field hockey has its own unique rules of play –fun to learn and easy to understand!
  • It’s only for girls/women
    Not true! Both men’s and women’s field hockey is a very popular sport with national and international teams competing in world cup and Olympic events.
  • It’s slow
    Quite the contrary! This sport will be slow at the beginning as you learn to play, but catch a glimpse of an experienced team and you’ll be amazed!
  • It has to be played on grass
    Actually, field hockey is most commonly played on a field or a turf. There is also a version called Indoor Field Hockey which is played on a gym floor and follows a different set of rules of play.

Spots are limited! To reserve a spot please email karina [dot] cross [at] rdc [dot] ab [dot] ca (Karina Cross).
