The all-new program will be developed and directed by former Darien High School Freshman Coach Wynne Lennon.
“My motto has always been ‘If you’re not having fun, then why do it?’,” Lennon said. “I am eager to bring this philosophy, along with my passion for the game, to Darien’s youth.”
DJFH will also be supported by celebrated Darien High School Varsity Coach Mo Minicus, and Junior Varsity Coach Kari Johns.
Together with Coach Lennon, these acclaimed coaches bring more than four decades of collegiate and high school field hockey experience to the buildout of DJFH’s mission and curriculum.
With the help of many qualified coaches and local volunteers, DJFH will design and execute a curriculum focused on age-appropriate skill development while fostering a culture of positivity, inclusivity, encouragement and camaraderie to promote an overall love of the game.
DJFH welcomes athletes entering Grades 1 to 8. Registration is open now.
