Stride & Private Lessons


2017 Spring Stride registration will open March 1st, 2017. Please see below details regarding 2017 Spring Stride. 


The Windy City Spring Stride program provides additional and advanced small group instruction for 6th-12th grade athletes in our Windy City programs. These sessions are meant to enhance the instruction players are receiving within our other programs. Sessions are semi-private with each group limited to 12 field players with 1-2 coaches. Not recommended for beginner level players.

SPRING STRIDE is especially geared toward two types of players:

1. Serious players that are on our U12, U14, U16 & U19 Travel Team programs. These players want to get extra coaching and touches on the ball to enhance their performance on those teams and help them become better all-around players. Travel Team players are encouraged to be in our Roots Fall League Program as well, but not required.

2. Players who are not in the Travel programs but participate in other Windy City Winter, Spring or Fall programs. These players want to receive extra instruction to improve their performance in Windy City spring programs. Must be registered for Roots Fall League to join Fall Stride.

***Stride is not recommended for the beginner player or for those with very little experience.***


Katie Beach, Owner & Director, Windy City Field Hockey will coach most sessions along with other Travel, Select or Academy Team Coaches. All programs are managed and supervised by Katie Beach.
