Field Hockey Private Training

Koa Field hockey now offers personalized training to help elevate your game. If you’re looking to take your field hockey skills to the next level, we’re here to help you achieve that goal! Private lessons are open to anyone–whether you’re on a Koa Field Hockey team, a school team, or another area squad.

Players can register for private lessons with our professional field hockey instructors. We have College Level coaches available for all lessons. All sessions are designed to help players get 1-on-1 instruction to improve on their individual skills and help them translate those skills to in-game play.

Private training takes place at either the Koa facility or one of our outdoor play spaces.
