Fields
Field Hockey practices are on varied surfaces. We play on grass, turf, and an indoor turf. We do this to provide the girls with experience on different playing surfaces. This enhances their skills and ability to play the sport. Fees for indoor and turf are included in the registration fee. Field location information can be found under the FIELDS tab of this website.


Equipment Requirements
Grades K-1 will be provided with a stick for use during practices. Players are required to provide shin guards, mouth guard, and cleats for grass play and sneakers for indoor play.

Grades 2-6 will need to provide their own stick, eyegear, mouthguard, shin guards, cleats for outdoor or turf shoes for indoor/turf play.
 

More information about equipment and purchasing can be found on the FIELD HOCKEY EQUIPMENT Tab of this website.
