Field Hockey

Nether-Swarthmore Field Hockey offers league-style play for girls in kindergarten through sixth grade.

Parent volunteers are essential to SRA Field Hockey.  You don’t have to know anything about the game (or even be a woman).  We will train you in the drills and help you teach the kids. The program is run by Amanda Lawson, who has coached all levels of field hockey.  She will help you be an amazing coach.
