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 with all of the town’s players 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 players play together in preparation for high school! Players will improve stick skills, learn field strategy, sportsmanship, teamwork. There is no tryout for this travel team!
Practices will start week of August 12th at Cherry Hill HS East AND West, on Tuesdays 6:30 – 8:00 pm and Thursdays 7:00 – 8:00 pm.
8 Games are played 9/8 – 10/20 on Sunday afternoons, at the opponent’s field in South Jersey or home at East or West HS. We will play half turf games and have one home game. The top six team records compete in playoffs over the weekend of 10/26 & 27.
The registration fee for 7th/8th travel is $150. Payment may be made in two installments.
Included in registration is a reversible team pinnie for practices and a team jersey and socks for games. Black shorts should be worn with uniform. Team shorts are also be for sale during registration (optional).
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 34″- 36″ 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:
