Beyond Sticks


Couldn’t wait to put her sign up
What will happen to this weekend's outdoor sessions?

We empower young athletes through sport. We coach the technical, tactical and mental in equal measure. Play Beyond the game. We help girls become technically savvy athletes and confident young women through camps, clinics, and club.

Operating as usual

Our last day of fall ended yesterday and it rocked. Literally. A first grader gave our DC director this small gift for coaching her and sometimes it's the smallest of gestures that make the biggest impact. #choosekindness #presentsfromourathletes #wemissyou

We take the safety of our Beyond Sticks family seriously.

That’s why we strictly follow our COVID19 safety policies. We take care of our circle of control so you can get back out on the field. 💪🏑❤️

What is #growingthegreatestgame 🧐⁉️🏑
It's an initiative created from these amazing women to bring colleges, clubs and community partners together to provide sustainable play for underrepresented athletes. It's a way to make club and college play more inclusive. Help us press GO ❇️ on spring pilot sites in the Bronx, Philly, Baltimore, DC and New Haven by donating to the link in bio. If your club, team or org wants to help (big or small) get in touch. 📧 #weplaytoo #fieldhockey #dosomegoodtoday @stepping_into_fh @so_field_hockey @sistas_with_stix

What is #growingthegreatestgame 🧐 ⁉️

It's a structure to bring colleges, clubs and community partners together to provide sustainable play. It's working with organizations committed to giving Black and Brown athletes role models as coaches. It's a way to make club play more accessible to all. This week, we're looking to cross the 5k mark in fundraising so we can press GO ❇️ on the spring pilot sites in the Bronx, Philly, Baltimore and DC.

Need we say more?!? 😍🏑

Another fun day in the works! We've said it before, but @usafieldhockey GO balls are awesome for helping make skills a little easier and a little more fun! We use them when athletes are getting the hang of a new game, then move to regular hockey balls! Or...just for air dribbling...because of course. #toolsofthetrade #fieldhockey #playbeyondthegame #getoutsideandplay

Leadership on zoom: A study in faces. 🤪🧐🤓

@beyond_sticks and @madeiraschool kicked off a custom Play Beyond the Game curriculum for all fall athletes this week. First up: creating a circle of control in your mind before you hit the field. The athletes did an awesome job and we can't wait to see them take these lessons to the field when they return to play in October. 💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿 #PlayBeyondthegame #empoweringwomen #morethananathlete

Field hockey has enriched our lives in unimaginable ways and today we want to use our platform to continue to help push the game into even more communities! Our organization has spearheaded an initiative with 3 others to increase inclusion and diversity in our sport by bringing field hockey to areas that would otherwise not have exposure. Help us continue to grow the game by donating to #weplaytoo celebrates diversity in our sport. I am committed to making field hockey inclusive for all by supporting #growingthegreatestgame (Please tag @sistas_with_stix, @stepping_into_fh, and @so_field_hockey)

Too busy kicking off opening weekend for pics! But how awesome is our NEW Wheaton location?!? Covered but open it's beautiful! it's one of the few times that still has space!

Our swag store is back, and just in time for fall! Check out

Good news! Every fall registration includes free swag. If you’ve already registered, keep an eye on your inbox this Friday for more info.

It’s not too late to sign up for fall, but you want to do it soon! We have space at our Wheaton MD and McLean VA sites - register at

We know this fall won't be easy: virtual learning, changes left and right, discovering there is such a thing as too.much.Netflix. So come Socialize, play and grow with @beyondsticks! We've added a Wheaton site in Maryland and a new time slot in McLean. Although our coaches will be in masks and only emotionally picking up our athletes this fall-we promise you'll leave our sessions with skills, JOY and tools for life off the field. 💪🏼🏑💪🏽🏑💪🏾🏑💪🏿#playbeyondthegame #fieldhockey #youthsports #mentalhealth #getoutsideandplay

Top 3️⃣ reasons to train at our Wheaton site:

1️⃣ Proven experience in keeping players and families safe while allowing kids to play field hockey again ❤️🏑

2️⃣ Low overall numbers and coach to player ratio mean extra touches on the ball, more practice making decisions, and more individual feedback. 💪🏑

3️⃣ Play Beyond the Game lessons teach character, leadership, and mental skills that are key to helping players stay mentally healthy during the pandemic. 🧠🏑

**Do these reasons apply to all our sites? Yes they do! Check out all of our fall options at

Have you meet our uber talented DC area head coach yet?? Underneath her mask this smile is constant. The former @catholicu_fh coach and @aufieldhockey standout didn't expect her first year at Beyond Sticks to look like this! 😷 The reason we had 6 incredible weeks of camp was in large part the leadership of @lewisheidil. She's the driving force behind finding space for athletes to play this fall! We can't wait for you to meet her. 😊🏑👏🏼 #playbeyondthegame #fieldhockey #novasports #youthsports

3 sites | 3 Levels of Play | New Curriculum | Same fun. Come play with us this fall. 🏑💥🏑💥
Link for more info in bio.

Great news! A 🏑 is approx 3 feet long-so just use two for proper social distancing! Our coaches look forward to seeing you 😷 safely on the field, and two sticks away off! Fall opens tomorrow! #fieldhockeymindset

Last camp on Monday in Leesburg! Last chance to keep your eye on the ball. 😜🥰 We've had a blast so far this summer!

@shel_press working with campers on recovery defense! 💪🏼🏑 ☀️ #playbeyondthegame #fieldhockey

PSA: New sport coming outta camp! Get ready! 😜🏑⚽️ #PlayBeyond thegame #fieldhockey #soccer

Your Monday reminder. 🥰
With so many changes this fall, hiding a weak foundation is impossible. The good news, it's never too late to build joy. #playbeyondthegame #fieldhockey #buildjoy #comeplaywithus

Full day camps next week! With a full sized gym in case of heat or storms and a 3 day, 2 day or all week option, there's a little something for everyone. The best part of our full day camps is we see SUCH.A.BIG.IMPROVEMENT as we get on the field, teach character, mental toughness, and teamwork, and then get back on the field again. It really lets stuff sink in. With a cap of 40 players so we can stay spread out-we're looking forward to another fun and safe week. #playbeyondthegame #camp #alwayslearning #fun #novasports

💪🏼👏🏼 looking forward to seeing John Lewis High School athletes playing with us this year! 🏑🔥

The Fairfax County School Board voted to rename Robert E. Lee High School after the late U.S. Congressman John R. Lewis at its business meeting today. The new name will be effective for the 2020-21 school year. Read the news release at this link:

⛈ ?? No problem! 💪🏼🔥 #playbeyondthegame #fieldhockey

With no fall sports our Leesburg camp is now an option for high school athletes. Come play with us before fall programming comes out! #playbeyondthegame #fieldhockey #summercamp #novasports #youthsports

Obstacle courses, shooting and games galore at our small group lessons last week! One of the reasons we keep our groups small is so when it gets too hot and we need to use the gym we can still spread out. We believe small groups=bigger impact. 💪🏼 🏑 🔥 #PlayBeyondthegame

Fall sports are a✖️ in Virginia...but we are working on getting our fall programs up! In the meantime-what's your happy dance for how hockey makes you feel? We've gotten some good ones this summer! ☀️ (in the meantime-3 weeks of camp left!) #playbeyondthegame

We're white board people over here! Check out our #PlayBeyondthegame lessons like Circle of Control or how our athletes pick the rules of our games. The more you can empower athletes, the more likely you'll see them confidently own their decisions on the field. 💪🏼 #fieldhockey
