Commitment, what does it mean for your player?

posted Feb 8, 2018, 5:48 PM by Hampshire Board
One of the questions we get a lot is about the commitment that is expected for each player. 

How many practices are there? 
When and how often do games occur? 

There isn't an exact science and we typically leave the number of practices up to the coaches. We will say that the number of practices and the time for each practice will increase as your player grows. 

For Example:

U8-U10 age group, they will practice 1-2 times a week with games occurring only on Saturdays
U11-12 age group, they will practice at least 2 times a week for 1-1.5 hours each time and will play games on Saturdays
U13+ age groups, they will practice ideally at least 3 times per week for 1.5-2hrs each practice, and will play games on Saturdays

These are just recommendations, based on the time needed to develop a specific age group and the attention span for the age group.
