Every year the Holderness JV field hockey program includes players with a wide variety of experiences and abilities. Some players have never held a hockey stick, while others have been playing for several years on junior high school teams. It is a program that emphasizes the learning and growth of athletes, no matter their initial starting points. The coaches stress the importance of teamwork, conditioning, and sportsmanship, while at the same time making sure that the players develop a love for the game.
JV field hockey at Holderness is a true feeder program for the varsity team. While some students may enjoy the lighter schedule and less competitive games played by the JV team, many student-athletes improve a great deal through the course of the season and make the jump to varsity for the final two to three weeks of the season. We meet players where they are and help them achieve their athletic goals!
