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!
8 games are played over 6 weeks: 9/13 – 10/18 on Sunday afternoons, at the opponent’s field in South Jersey or home at one of the Cherry Hill High Schools. We play games on turf and grass, and will have at least one home game.
Practices tentatively start in August at Cherry Hill HS East or West, on Tuesdays and Thursdays TBD.
The registration fee for 5th/6th travel for the Fall season is $140. Payment may be made in two installments.
All players will be provided a reversible pinnie for practices, a game jersey, and team socks as part of registration. Black shorts should be worn with uniform, and will also be for sale during registration (optional).
Players should have their own field hockey stick. We can provide one if needed. Players this age will likely need a 34″ – 36″ stick, depending on height. Stick should be hip height. HerSport is recommended for helping pick the right stick for your player or use the guideline below:
All players will also need a mouthguard, cleats and shinguards. Eye protection (goggles) is optional, but highly recommended for safety while playing. (It is required for middle school team play, but not for this league.)
