Following is some information regarding registration and plans for the season.
Registration is open to girls in grades 2- 8. No previous experience is required to play. All girls are welcome!
The program fee is $125 for grades 2-4 and $200 for grades 5-8. The BGCRE provides sticks, balls, and great uniforms. Players only need to provide their own goggles and mouthpiece.
Practices days and times will be determined once teams and coaches are set. It is anticipated that there will be 2 practices a week for the younger grades and 2 - 3 per week for the older girls. Practices will usually be held at the BGCRE.
Games will generally be played on the weekends on Sundays at JBHS for home games with an occasional games at the BGCRE.
The varsity players from the Joel Barlow High School field hockey team will return this year to run early season clinics on the JBHS stadium field. Dates are still being secured, but look for clinics in late August and early September.
There will be a field hockey kick-off picnic on September 3 @ 6pm at the Boys and Girls Club pavilion. All the girls, coaches and parents from every level are encouraged to attend. Catch up with old friends and make some new ones. We will have a potluck style picnic, music, giveaways and some very exciting new swag at our apparel store.
Our program is a volunteer program. Coaches and leaders come from our own ranks and learn from each other. We need all hands on deck and have some spots to fill this season. Any parent reading this who is interested in being on the field and helping the girls in a hands on fashion should contact Amy Taylor @
We have never met a parent who regretted the decision to help coach. Don’t be shy. We need you!
Planning for a season of field hockey takes a lot of volunteer effort and the earlier that girls register the more time we have to plan. The more time we have to plan, the better experience we all have.
