Looking to introduce your 1st or 2nd grader to the sport of field hockey? Great! The younger players start playing, the better they become at the older ages.
This age group will have an opportunity to learn basic fundamentals of the game during 6 weekly clinics in September and October on Sundays at Cherry Hill HS East, 9/13-10/18. In 2019, the 6th week was a scrimmage against Haddonfield so the girls could practice what they learned! We plan to do that again. The Cherry Hill High School players help out as well, which the little ones love!
In addition, our league (South Jersey Field Hockey League) hosts a fun Round Robin play day with other teams in this division to wrap up the season on Saturday October 17th at Total Turf in Pitman.
We have 24 sticks & balls available for player usage, from a grant we were awarded from USA Field Hockey and Harrow Sports, so your equipment investment is low. Each player should have shin guards, cleats (if possible) and a mouth guard. Eye protection (goggles) are recommended (can use lacrosse goggles).
The registration fee for this program is $75. A team reversible pinnie is included with registration. Team shorts and t-shirts are available for purchase during registration. Payment can be made in two installments.
