5th/6th grades

Travel – Badgers division

This program is a great way to introduce field hockey to your player, get ready for middle school teams, and to play with Cherry Hill players against nearby towns. South Jersey Field Hockey league is a competitive travel league and will really help raise your player’s game by playing for a longer season than the middle schools. Players will learn fundamentals of the sport, field positioning, improve stick skills, plus sportsmanship, teamwork, and make new friends around Cherry Hill! There is no tryout for this team!

Regular season games are played over 6 Sundays: 9/11, 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/16, 10/23. There are 8 games played at the opponent’s field in South Jersey or home at Cherry Hill High School East. We play games on turf and grass, and will have at least one home game.

Practices start August 16th at Cherry Hill HS East, on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-8:00 pm.

There is also a Play for a Cause League tournament over Columbus Day Weekend, 10/8 and 9 at the Gloucester Twp turf fields. Playoffs are the weekend of 10/29 and 30 for the top 8 teams.

The registration fee for 5th/6th is $160 per player. Payment may be made in three installments: registration, 8/1 and 9/1.
