This year the committee has decided to combine the 7th and 8th grade players. We will be forming equally balanced and skilled teams. We will have 1 practice, one away game day, and home Sunday games. Our goal is to incorporate our program with local middle school leagues, teams, and Clubs. This provides our girls with opportunities for highly competitive play. This year we added an extra day mid-week to allow our girls to play more 11v11 gameplay. This will enhance their play in high school and club as well as increase their fitness. They will not be playing 7v7 games on Sundays but will be required to be at opening day on Sept 9th at the commons.
Tuesday 3:00-5:00 at Boxford Commons
Wednesday 3:00-5:00 Boxford Commons

VOLUNTEERS & COACHING CLINIC
The success of our program is highly dependent upon our volunteers. We are looking for help in a variety of ways - Please contact us if you can help in any way.
To be a coach you are not expected to have played field hockey nor be a field hockey expert. Please do not be concerned. We will be hosting a field hockey fundamentals class prior to the start of the season. A CORI form must be completed annually for all of our coaching volunteers.
