About Total Dutch Field Hockey

Total Dutch Field Hockey is a Field Hockey organization for players in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

Total Dutch Field Hockey offers a year round program for all ages and all skill levels. TDFH Programs include: Skill Classes, Private Training, Camps, Leagues, Tournaments and Club teams.

The Netherlands is recognized around the world as one of the top countries in Field Hockey.  The Men’s and Women’s National hockey teams have both won numerous World Cups, Olympic gold, European titles and Champion Trophy’s.  The Dutch competition is one of the strongest in the World with the most effective training tools. At Soccer Centers in New Jersey we have developed the TOTAL DUTCH FIELD HOCKEY philosophy, which is based on the Dutch training method, but geared towards the American Field Hockey player.

Our Field Hockey coaches are hired directly from the Netherlands with degrees from the KNHB (Royal Dutch Field Hockey Association) and C.I.O.S. (Central Institute of Sports Education). The C.I.O.S. is a full time college where students are taught all aspects of sport, from sports psychology to conditioning and from teaching young players to professional game analysis.

In order to graduate for the C.I.O.S. students will receive 3600 hours of classroom and on the field training. In addition to the “regular” classes the students are also taught in other aspects of sports such as; sports psychology, conditioning, speed and agility, injury prevention and physiology.

C.I.O.S. is a 4-year college with a very strong admission selection process.

Total Dutch Field Hockey coaches are able to bring the correct curriculum to each team/ player and are able to make the players understand the tactical manner of the game they are playing.

Remember, Total Dutch Field Hockey coaches are teachers.
