My daughter already plays on a team, will she be challenged?
• Yes.  We break into groups based on age and skill level.  Our coaches also are constantly evaluating groups and are happy to make adjustments throughout the course of a NXT Field Hockey program. 

My daughter has never played before, can l still sign her up for NXT Field Hockey?
•Yes. Players will get lots of reps working on individual skills and are in groups with players of similar skills and ability levels.  


My daughter wants to be in the same group with her friend, can you make sure they’re paired together?
•Of course, just let us know!

If we miss a session, is there a way to make it up?
•We handle these situations on an individual basis. In many seasons, we run multiple NXT Field Hockey sessions.  If you are unable to make one week, it is likely you can hop in to another session.
