Fall Ball improves our girls at all levels, and we feel that our Fall Ball program sets Fort Hunt apart from other clubs in Northern Virginia.

For Scoopers, only a girls stick is necessary. If you don't have a stick yet, you might check with a friend or neighbor who may have graduated to a new stick and might have a beginner stick available.
Sneakers or Cleats - It would be good if the girls wore cleats, but sneakers are fine as well. The fields at times may be wet. Ultimately, whatever you and your daughter feel most comfortable with is best.
