JUNIOR Fall Field Hockey Program
The Junior Fall Field Hockey Program is an instructional field hockey league with a low level of
competition and a strong focus on skill development with across the board participation. All
ability levels are welcome. We also hire an outside organization to come in and teach skills and
drills and incorporate this training into our regular practice nights.
All participants will follow additional protocols during the pandemic which may be adjusted as
necessary during the season for the Grades 5-8 programs.
If your child is sick, please have them stay home.
All NJDOH and Executive Orders will be followed.
Mouth guards, Cleats, Shin Guards, Field Hockey Goggles are MANDATORY!
A limited number of loaner sticks are available; first come, first served basis.
Program Director: Kathy Gulbish
As additional Fall information becomes available, it will be posted here.
Please NOTE: Boys who wish to play Field Hockey are permitted to by the league. Please contact
the Recreation Dept. with any questions.
