This Field Hockey program is a team activity designed for boys and girls currently in SEVENTH and EIGHTH grades. The emphasis of this program is on participation and enjoyment. EVERYONE GETS TO PLAY! There are no "cuts" or "try-outs". Participants are assigned to teams based on their grade and public school attendance area. (Private and out-of-district school teams may be formed provided they meet the grade requirements, minimum number of players and registration deadline.) Rosters are typically limited to 10 players per team. The season is scheduled to begin Saturday, April 13, 2013 and run for seven to nine weeks. Teams will play seven games. Games are held on Saturdays and will be scheduled between the hours of 9:00am and 4:30pm depending on the league. Each team is assigned one practice a week. Practices are held at local Parks and Elementary schools between the hours of 3:30pm and 8:00pm Monday -Friday. If you have any special requests that you would like Rec & Ed staff to consider, e.g. specific coach, specific teammate, you must indicate your request in the "special request" section of the registration form at the time your initial registration is submitted. For additional information regarding the Field Hockey timelines, equipment specification, refund policy and how to volunteer to be a Rec & Ed youth field hockey coach, consult the 2013 Spring Youth Field Hockey Brochure or contact Seth at 994-2300, ext. 53225. Priority Registration is available until 5:00pm on February 8, 2013. After this time an additional $10.00 fee will be added to your registration. Registrations received after February 8th will receive a lower placement priority. On-line registration is available to registrants who have a current on-line account and will be paying by credit card or existing credit on account. On-line registration cannot accept payment by gift certificates, scholarships or any other form of discounts.
