Volunteers

Our entire program runs on volunteers!  We need coaches and assistant coaches for all levels for the fall 2019 field hockey season. This is a great and fun way to support our Girls at DAA!  Contact Carla McConnaughhay or Meredith Martin at  for additional information.

If you have never played or coached field hockey, you’re not alone!  We pair novice and experienced coaches together, and there will be a coaches clinic before practices begins.
