Basic Skills Power Hour

Back by popular demand!  We are offering  a 4-week session where we will spend one hour focusing on perfecting our individual skills.  This time is for any athlete that wants to learn how to play or any athlete who knows how to play and wants to improve her: Ball Carrying Skills, Elimination Skills, Hitting/Pushing/Sweeping, Shots on Goal, Vision around the ball, 1 v 1 skills

There won't be any scrimmage or small games with this session, it is one hour of basics, basics, basics until we get them right and feel incredibly confident executing the skills!  There will be a strong emphasis on proper technique, speed of execution and taking risks with new skills.  Girls should come prepared to work hard and do lots of repetitions of the same skill.  

We have divided the sessions by grade and will divide you by level of experience within the session if necessary.   We will meet on Sundays at Total Soccer Novi (Grand River and Meadowbrook).  Dates are:  Sunday, November 17, November 24 and December 8 and December 15.  There will be no practice Thanksgiving weekend.

5th -  8th graders will be from 6:00 - 7:00 pm

9th - 12th graders will be from 7:00-8:00 pm (and goalkeepers of all ages)

Girls are encouraged to come early and warm-up on their own.  We only have an hour of turf time so we will get right to work at 6:00 and 7:00 with a very abbreviated warm up.   Cost is $96.  Girls will get lots of touches on the ball and individual attention.

Field Hockey For Girls Grades 1-5

Live Oak is partnering with Novi Parks and Recreation for the second year in a row.  We loved getting to know the elementary girls in the Novi area.  This year we will be offering two different 6-week sessions.  One for total beginners (5:15-6:15) and one for the intermediate athlete who has played with us in the past (6:15-7:15).  We will meet on Thursday nights from November 7 to December 19 at the Meadows gym (no class on Thanksgiving).  Register with Novi Parks and Recreation at
