    FALL FIELD HOCKEY 2020

     
    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
     

    We are excited to announce the return of Pinnacle Fall League – 2020.

    Fall League will be conducted at Al Ritt Stadium in Dexter, Michigan.

    Throughout the months of June – July, 2020 we demonstrated that we were able to safely return to play in instituting:

    ·      Athlete Covid Questionnaire completion immediately prior to arrival

    ·      Pre practice temperature assessment

    ·      Social Distancing, and

    ·      Arrival and Departure structure

    This fall we will utilize the same strategies as well as compete with masks to continue to promote safe return to play interventions for our participants.

     

    Fall League athletes will participate in:

    ·      Running mechanics – warm-up

    ·      Skill acquisition, and

    ·      League matches with assigned teams

    Which are facilitated by coaches who are invested in the growth of each respective athlete as teammates, technicians and tacticians of the game.

     

    We look forward to having your daughter/son join us for Fall League 2020!

    A Message from Pinnacle to our field hockey community

    Dear Pinnacle Field Hockey Athletes, Families and Enthusiasts

    Thank you for checking out our webpage and inquiring about Pinnacle. As we all navigate uncharted waters know that we will endeavor to keep our Pinnacle Family together through communicating information here, on our home page, as well as emailing our travel athletes and spring registrants to help us remain connected.  

    Due to the rapidly changing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the start of  spring leagues will be delayed. At this point in time we plan to run spring leagues and travel programs, if practices and competitions are permitted at the direction of the CDC and the MI State Government.  As the weeks progress we will have more information to make informed decisions on potential start dates.  

    And in the midst of these uncharted waters we share:

    How do you see it?

    Two stone cutters were asked what they were doing.

    The first one said, “I’m cutting this stone into blocks.”

    The second one replied, “I’m on a team that’s building a cathedral.”

    Within our homes and communities, right now, let’s seek ways to continue to build our cathedrals, we’ve got this.

    Thank you for your understanding and support of Pinnacle Field Hockey.  

    Pinnacle Welcomes Pinnacle West to the Family

    Pinnacle Field Hockey is thrilled to announce the addition of Pinnacle West, centered in Grand Rapids, to our field hockey family. Under the guidance and leadership of Kelsey (Thompson) Chun we look forward to collaboratively growing the game of field hockey in western Michigan. Kelsey has proven herself to be an integral contributor at each level in which she has competed, assisting her interscholastic as well as intercollegiate programs in winning championships. For an extensive view of Kelsey’s field hockey background and accomplishments, read about her on our Staff Page.

    Training sessions hosted at Pinnacle West can be found in the drop down tag titled Pinnacle West. (Look for upcoming programming there when Michigan’s state-wide “stay home stay safe” mandates lift and public gatherings are allowed again.)

    Welcome to the Pinnacle Family!

    A message from Coach Kelsey:

    “I am incredibly excited and honored to be at the helm of Pinnacle's expansion to West Michigan. I am certain that partnering with Pinnacle will offer western Michigan athletes an unparalleled opportunity by being part of the nationally-recognized club that coaching legend Nancy Cox has built.”
