DARIEN, CT (March 16, 2020) – Members of the Darien community announced today the formation of Darien Junior Field Hockey (DJFH), a new youth field hockey program beginning in the Fall of 2020.

 

The all-new program will be developed and directed by former Darien High School Freshman Coach, Wynne Lennon.  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. 

 

“I am thrilled to serve as DJFH’s Program Director and introduce this new program to young athletes in our community,” said DJFH Program Director, Wynne Lennon. “My motto has always been ‘If you’re not having fun, then why do it?’. 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. 

 

DJFH welcomes athletes entering grades 1-8. Registration will begin March 17, details forthcoming. For more information, please visit www.DJFH.org.
