The mission of Delaware Shore Field Hockey, Inc. is to provide instruction in the skills necessary to play the sport of field hockey. DSFH, Inc. provides the means for personal growth and development for each athlete to gain the most from their athletic abilities. Athletes are trained to apply their developing skills in a game situation and to analyze the outcome. Analysis of the action during a game is a team effort in which positive and non-threatening communication with teammates and coaches to foster higher level of cooperation is the desired outcome. All athletes in the program will be challenged to develop their skills and abilities through competition with other highly skilled athletes. Sportsmanship, respect for the rules of the game, respect for teammates and opponents, encouragement of attitudes of self-discipline, group (team) loyalty, education of self and others, intensity of effort, responsibility for personal actions, and competitive spirit are the desired outcomes of the program of Delaware Shore Field Hockey, Inc.
