Fall 2nd-6th Grade Rec Leagues

Charlotte Ambush Leagues foster an environment conducive to simply enjoying the rewards of playing the sport of field hockey and being part of a team.  This begins with the best attitude, simple-play philosophy, and learning the fundamental skills. We welcome those new to the sport and encourage all efforts to “grow the game” in Charlotte and surrounding areas.  



For players entering 2nd-5th grade this Fall, co-ed (Beginner and Intermediate)


Our fall league for 2nd-5th graders will combine clinics and games (7 sessions): practice drills to learn the foundation for more competitive scenarios, then mastering passing/receiving while emphasizing game sense, field vision and positioning.  Enjoy new opportunities to watch Queens games and learn from some of the most experienced local coaches.
