Carroll Manor Field Hockey


We are excited to kick-off another year for Field Hockey! Carroll Manor Field Hockey will introduce the international sport of Field Hockey (one of the oldest world games) to BOTH GIRLS AND BOYS. Carroll Manor  participates in the Frederick County Youth Field Hockey League run by FCP&R.  All of the games are held on Saturdays at Ballenger Creek Park, Forman Turf Field.

Our goal is to introduce kids to concepts of belonging to a team, good sportsmanship, building confidence and character, and goal setting which all equate to life lessons. We promote a safe and FUN environment where each player can grow independently and as part of the team.  We will teach the skills and techniques thru drills, stations and game play.

Carroll Manor Field Hockey’s success is dependent on you! Our program is always looking for volunteers - Moms and Dads, this means you!  NOW is the time for you to also get familiar with the game and coaching. If interested in helping or want more information, email or check off the volunteer boxes. No experience necessary, just the desire to help. We will train and provide you with all you need.   

We look forward to sharing our love of Field Hockey with the Carroll Manor Community and Frederick County.  See you on the pitch! 

Susan Reece, CMRC Field Hockey Commissioner
