About all our spring sessions:

Who: All skill levels, 3rd grade through 10th grade.  Typically we have anywhere from 3-6 different groups on the turf (dependent on numbers):

  1. 3rd-4th graders
  2. 5th-6th graders
  3. 6th-8th grade, Some experience
  4. 6th-8th grade, Experience
  5. 8th-10th grade Little to no experience
  6. th-10th grade Experienced
  7. NEW FOR SPRING: You will be placed on an official team to better learn team tactics and so you can know one another for our end of season play day!

We reserve the right to slightly change teams or move players around according to age, ability and make up of those registered after the first week.  We have had seasons with entire groups of 8th graders, for example, when we get a big group of one age. We do accommodate friend requests, but will put players in a group according to the players with the least experience/ability level.  For example if your friend has never played field hockey and you have but still would like to play with them, you will be placed in the no experience group.
