MEDFIELD GIRLS YOUTH FIELD HOCKEY
REGISTRATION BEGINS ON JULY 9!
We are super excited to announce our participation in the Commonwealth Girls Field Hockey League this fall for the third consecutive year. Our teams will host games at Metacomet Park and play road games against teams from Attleboro, Walpole, Franklin, Foxboro, Norwood and more!
As part of the league, we will host one weekly practice in addition to the game on Saturday. Weekly practices will take place at McCarthy Park.
We will need at least 14 players on each team to be able to enter the league, and will be able to have a maximum of 18 players on each team. We will only have one team per session (ex, only one team in the 5/6 grade league).
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, July 21! We need to be able to inform the league if we will have a team!
The fee will include everything EXCEPT a uniform. We will have a fitting for uniforms at a date and time TBA. We are working on a cost for the uniforms, but do not expect it to exceed $60. This will be payable by cash/check at the night of the fitting.
WITH COVID-19 and new regulations, players will be REQUIRED to wear a mask when they get to the field. They will be allowed to remove the mask only after the coach has given the OK.
FIELD HOCKEY goggles will be required of all players by the league this year. You cannot wear lacrosse goggles as the referees will not allow those in games. We have field hockey goggles available to anyone that will need them. Cost will be $30.
Confirmed practice schedule is:
Grades 3/4 -- TBD
Grades 5/6 -- TBD
Grades 7/8 -- TBD
Practices will tentatively start the week of August 24
Games are tentatively set to start Sept 12
Home Game times

Road game times are TBD, but we are working with the league to keep them as close to the above times as possible.
The full schedule will be available around mid-August. The first games are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12.
Our coaching staff will be anchored by Lynne Malmquist again this year!
**** With everything changing around youth sports and COVID-19, there is a chance the season does not start on time and/or is cancelled. If that is the case, we would offer credits/refunds to families for any missed time.
