Jackals Field Hockey Club was founded in 2000 with the goal of providing an environment for high school athletes to develop their skill and bring elite play to the Metro DC area. Today, Jackals has grown to become one of the area’s leading developers of young talent, supporting successful U19, U16 and U14 programs, as well as a fast growing developmental program for U12 and U10 players.

Jackals Field Hockey Club is a three-tiered program comprised of Jackals Rec, Jackals Classic and Jackals Travel. The size of this program makes it a more suitable match for a range of athletes of varying skill-level and availability. In addition to the numerous teams and leagues, we offer developmental clinics and private lessons for those seeking specific training.  With a focus on year-round skill development, fitness training and elite competition, Jackals provides the perfect environment for athletes of all ages to grow and thrive.
