MEDFIELD GIRLS YOUTH FIELD HOCKEY
REGISTRATION BEGINS ON FRIDAY, JULY 9!
We are super excited to announce our participation in the Commonwealth Girls Field Hockey League again this fall for the fourth year. Our teams will host games at Metacomet Park and play road games against teams from Attleboro, Walpole, Franklin, Foxboro, Norwood and more!
As part of the league, we will host one weekly practice in addition to the game on Saturday. Weekly practices will take place at McCarthy Park.
We will need at least 14 players on each team to be able to enter the league, and will be able to have a maximum of 20 players (grade 3-4) and 25 players (grades 5-6 and 7-8) on each team. We will only have one team per session (ex, only one team in the 5/6 grade league).
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Thursday, July 22! We need to be able to inform the league if we will have a team!
The fee will include everything (and a practice jersey) EXCEPT a game uniform. We will have a fitting for uniforms at a date and time TBA. We are working on a cost for the uniforms, and a lot will depend on supply availability. This will be payable by cash/check/Venmo at the night of the fitting.
FIELD HOCKEY goggles will be required of all players by the league this year. You cannot wear lacrosse goggles as the referees will not allow those in games. We have field hockey goggles available to anyone that will need them. Cost will be $30.

Grades 3/4 -- Wednesdays, 4-5pm
Grades 5/6 -- Tuesdays, 5-6pm
