Welcoming Young Athletes

On Sunday, Cushing welcomed 33 local girls to Quimby Field for the 2013 Cushing Youth Field Hockey program. Designed for girls age 5-11, and run by the Cushing Field Hockey team, the program gives young players an introduction to the sport, while instilling the value of teamwork. But these young players aren’t the only ones who benefit. For the Cushing players, the program provides leadership and coaching experience, and a connection to the local community as well. At the end of the six-week session, the CA team will invite the girls back to watch them play in a home game.
