Torrey Pines Field Hockey Clinic on May 11

Head coach Katy Moyneur and the Torrey Pines High School varsity field hockey team are having a clinic for girls currently in 3rd through 8th grade on Saturday, May 11, from 8:30 to 11 a.m., in Falcons Stadium on the Torrey Pines campus.

The clinic will focus on the game, rules and basic skills of field hockey.

It’s a great way for new players with no experience to try the sport for the first time, but is also a chance for those who played in junior high to sharpen their skills before high school tryouts in August.

Participants need to bring shin guards, mouth guard, water, sunscreen

and a field hockey stick. If you don’t have a stick, one will be provided. Tennis shoes, turf shoes or cleats are okay. The cost is $50 per player.

Besides Moyneur – who played on an NCAA championship team at the University of Michigan – the coaching staff for the clinic will comprise members of the Torrey Pines varsity team. The Falcons were a

CIF quarter-finalist last season and have won the San Diego County championship twice.

To register please click onto the Torrey Pines Field Hockey website ( download the clinic form and mail it in with

your check before April 7. Questions can be directed to Coach Moyneur
