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.

A note from Coach Kathy regarding sticks:

In regards to stick size:  with the toe of the stick on the ground, make sure it is straight.  Hold the stick with 2 fingers at the top of the handle keeping it in place.  The top of the stick should reach the hip bone, it can be slightly higher or lower.

Another way is by height.

4'3"-4'6": 32 inches
4'6"-4' 9": 33 inches
