2021 Winter Indoor Travel Teams
What is “Indoor” Field Hockey?
“Indoor Field Hockey” is the soccer-equivalent to futsal- it is the fast and furious (AND FUN!) version of field hockey complete with a different set of rules, a different playing-field surface, and different equipment. Indoor field hockey is played on a friction-free gym floor between the months of November and March to develop the players’ skills in the off-season. It is THE BEST way to increase the speed and quickness of stick skills and decision making, as the court is much smaller, faster, and there is a heavier reliance on ball-handling (and body control) where hitting the ball is prohibited.
Mayhem’s Indoor Field Hockey Programs
Mayhem offers three different kinds of Indoor Programs to suit the needs of ALL players’ age, skill, and commitment level: full-season Showcase Travel Teams, “Home Team” Travel Teams (1/2 season), and the Mayhem Rising Skills training program. Every athlete offered a spot in Mayhem’s Fall Outdoor Travel Team program will be given a spot in its Winter Indoor Travel Team program. These athletes will again be evaluated once indoor practices begin in November in order to determine the specific team rosters either on a Showcase or a Home Team. Athletes ONLY interested in participating in the Mayhem Rising Skills training program need not attend tryouts and may sign-up for the program in the fall by clicking HERE.
Missed Mayhem’s June 2021 Tryouts for our Fall & Winter Travel Teams?
Mayhem is excited to share a new MAKE-UP tryout opportunity for our 2021-2022 Winter Indoor Travel Team program! We only have a limited number of spots left in our U10, U12, U14, U16 and U19 indoor travel team programs, so selection is going to be very competitive. If your daughter is not invited to join a travel team, we will provide you with several other avenues to train, improve, and prepare for our Spring tryouts!
Tuesday, August 24th. 7 7:15PM- 8:30PM (REGISTER, HERE!)
U10: 9 or under as of 1/1/22
U12: 11 or under as of 1/1/22

At Mayhem Field Hockey, our hope is for our athletes to train with us throughout the fall and winter indoor seasons in a mutual commitment to one other: Mayhem commits to developing a greater consistency in skill, cohesiveness, style, expectations and camaraderie throughout your age division, and you commit to the “Mayhem Difference”.
Selected athletes would also be expected to join our FALL travel team program and/or a Mayhem clinic series to prepare for the winter indoor season.
Tryouts will be held on turf inside of the NEW Mayhem Athletic Center: 1032 Conshohocken Road, Conshohocken. During tryouts, your daughter will be evaluated on the following:
- Stick skills
- Athleticism and coordination
- Dynamic movements
- Off- ball movements
If you are selected to the Mayhem Winter Indoor Travel Team PROGRAM, you will again be evaluated the first weekend of November with other Mayhem athletes for placement either on a HOME Travel team or a SHOWCASE Travel Team.
Season Duration: November 1, 2021 through February 27th, 2022
Practice Facility: Mayhem Athletic Center, 1032 Conshohocken Road, Conshohocken
