Travel – Honey Badgers division
Playing in this age division is a great way to get more playing time than the middle school teams and to play against nearby towns in South Jersey. 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. Plus, it is great to have the Cherry Hill girls play together in preparation for high school! Players will improve stick skills, learn field strategy, sportsmanship, teamwork.
New in 2020: There will be an A and B team this fall for the league. A team will do playoffs in the league. Both teams will practice together.
Conditioning lead by 8th graders: starting first week of August. Practices start week of August 17th, 2020 at Cherry Hill HS West, on Tuesdays 6:30-8:00 pm and Thursdays 7:00-8:00 pm.
8 games are played 9/13 – 10/18/2020 on Sunday afternoons, at the opponent’s field in South Jersey or home at Cherry Hill HS East or West. Half of the games are played on turf and we have at least one home game. The top six team records in the A division compete in playoffs over the weekend of 10/24 & 25/2020.

All players will need shin guards, a mouthguard, and cleats. 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.)
Players should have their own stick to play. Girls this age will likely need a 35″- 37″ stick, depending on player height. HerSport is recommended for helping pick the right stick for your player. The graphic below is also a good guideline:
