Fall Field Hockey Registration NOW OPEN!
The URA Field Hockey Program is an instructional level program open to girls entering first through sixth grades in the fall who are interested in both learning the fundamentals of field hockey and improving their skills. Our program is designed for the girls to have fun, get exercise, practice teamwork and develop their hockey abilities. In 2011, we had over 150 girls involved in our program!!!
The season runs from September 4th through October 27th. The girls are divided into divisions based on grade level of Fall 2012:
- First-Second Grades....One hour twice a week with games during those times.
- Third-Fourth Graders....One and a half hours of weeknight practice and Saturday morning games
- Fifth-Sixth Graders.....Two and a half hours of weeknight practice and Saturday morning games.
The 1-2 and 3-4 divisions play 6 vs. 6 on a half sized field with no goalie. Home games are played at the URA baseball/softball complex located on Route 82, approx. 1 mile past Unionville Elementary. The 5-6 division plays 11 vs. 11 with goalies on a full sized field, similar to that of the middle and high school teams. Our "home" field is located at Patton Middle School. In previous seasons, we have been able to "travel" to away locations (no further than 30 minutes) and this will be determined at the end of summer.
NOTE: Practice is a necessary component of learning this sport, developing skills and teamwork and playing hockey SAFELY. Please recognize that a commitment to practice is important and players must develop a level of safety before coaches can give them the opportunity to play in games.
URA provides t-shirts, balls and goalie equipment for players. Each player MUST PROVIDE their own stick, shinguards, mouthguard and shorts. Both shinguards and mouthguards are mandatory!
Registration is currently open for Fall 2012 and will close on July 15, 2012!
