WE NEED YOU!!!

The success of DJFH will be due in large part to the tireless efforts of our volunteers.  These include our Parent Coaches and the DJFH Board of Directors.  As DJFH grows into a large and thriving program, we'll need your help!

 

Parent Coaches

The heart of Darien Junior Field Hockey is the parent volunteers who give their time, energy and enthusiasm to enrich the youth player experience.  If you would like to be a part of this rewarding experience, we'd love to hear from you!  DJFH is dedicated to providing our coaches with training and support throughout the season.  Led by Darien Junior Field Hockey Head Coach Wynne Lennon, we will hold coaches clinics as well as provide detailed coaching plans to assist you.
