MEDFIELD GIRLS YOUTH FIELD HOCKEY
REGISTRATION BEGINS ON JULY 1!
We are super excited to announce our participation in the Commonwealth Girls Field Hockey League this fall for the second consecutive 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 18 players on each team.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, July 24! We need to be able to inform the league if we will have a team!
The fee will include everything EXCEPT a uniform. We will have a fitting for uniforms on Wednesday, July 24 at 6:15PM. We are working on a cost for the uniforms, but do not expect it to exceed $60. This will be payable by cash/check 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 are working with a distributor to get field hockey goggles to be able to sell to anyone that will need them. Cost will be approximately $30. More details to come.
Confirmed practice schedule is:
Grades 3/4 -- Tuesday from 4-5pm
Grades 5/6 -- Tuesday from 5-6pm
Grades 7/8 -- Thursday from 4-5pm
Practices will tentatively start on August 20 & 22
Home Game times
Grades 3/4 -- Saturday at 1pm
Grades 5/6 -- Saturday at 2:30pm
Grades 7/8 -- Saturday at 4pm
Home games will be at Metacomet Park, 93 Pleasant Street.
Road game times are TBD, but we are working with the league to keep them as close to the above times as possible.
The full schedule will be available around mid-August. The first games are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7.
Our coaching staff will be anchored by Lynne Malmquist and Alicia Gray this year!
TEAM APPAREL OPTIONS
Once again, we are working with Tri-Valley Sports to offer some team specific apparel options for the field hockey teams. We are offering a navy Under Armour hooide (with option to add player name) and a gray long sleeve Under Armour shirt. These will be available from July 1 - Aug 20 in the online store only. Once the order deadline has passed, they will make the items and we will have a bulk pickup at practice. Any questions, contact Kevin or Lynne!
