Team Breakdown

Grades 5-8


Generally, there are 20 girls per team. Each team travels to the neighboring towns of Agawam, Wilbraham, East Longmeadow, Holyoke, Westfield , Belchertown ,Northampton and South Hadley and we try and split the games half at home and half away. Each team participates in 2-3 tournaments or jamborees each season. Longmeadow hosts 1 as a fundraiser - "Jammin' in the Meadow", which will be held on Saturday, 9/24/16.

NEW! Bantam, Grades 3-4


We are so pleased to provide a bantam level of play for 3rd and 4th graders for the first time in Longmeadow. We do have a limited number of field hockey sticks for this age group to borrow.

Schedule

The season starts in late August and runs through the first week of November. Each team has 3-4 events such as practice or a game each week throughout the season. It’s one of the few programs in town where the coaching of teams may be a partnership of volunteer parents (folks who may know the game but more importantly, know the girls) and young professional coaches (who know the game and may have played in college or coached somewhere else).

Volunteers

Parent coaches, assistants and volunteers are needed so please let us know your interest. More information will be sent to the participants in August.

Apparel & Equipment
Uniform shirts and socks are provided. Players must wear plain black shorts to each game.
Players must provide their own stick, mouth guard, goggles and shin pads.
