Looking to introduce your K, 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, 9/12-10/17/2021. In 2019, the 6th week was a scrimmage against Haddonfield so the girls could practice what they learned! We plan to do that again.
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 16th at Total Turf in Pitman.
We have field hockey sticks & balls available for player usage, from a grant we were awarded from USA Field Hockey and Harrow Sports if needed to borrow. Each player should have shin guards, cleats (if possible) and a mouth guard. Eye protection (goggles) are recommended (can use lacrosse goggles). We recommend going to HerSport in Cherry Hill for gear.
The registration fee for this program is $75. Payment may be made in three installments, registration, 8/1 and 9/1.
Included in registration is a reversible team pinnie for practices. Black shorts should be worn with uniform. Team shorts are also for sale during our CHYFH spiritwear sale in August (optional).
Volunteers are highly needed for this age division! Please indicate if you can coach while registering.
