Click on the yellow arrow to register - which will close July 30, 2021. Once we have a sense for headcount, additional details will follow with practice and game schedules. Grade K games are generally limited to in-town - so uniform purchase is completely optional.
See additional yellow arrows for important information regarding uniform purchases (we will be doing fittings soon), our new Store for Field Hockey swag (which is not open yet but will be very soon) and the camp that Seacoast United will be doing at LHS this summer.
See FAQs tab for important information regarding the equipment your child needs (e.g., type of goggles, stick size). We will do stick sizing if the interest is there as that impacts the ability of the player to effectively play field hockey.
As coaches, our job in the Lynnfield Youth Field Hockey program is to build a love of the game and develop our players at all levels. To keep our program competitive with other leading programs, we want dedicated players. Game participation at the 5th to 8th grade levels will be based on attendance at practices, a positive attitude and respect for teammates and coaches and their performance at both practices and games. Players who do not attend every practice, who do not show up on time, do not try their hardest and do not show respect for coaches, officials, opponents and teammates may not get as much playing time as other teammates. This mirrors their playing ability at the high school level (which at the Middle School level is our job as a feeder program) and develops their dedication to the sport.
See link to the right for field hockey programs in our area. There is also an opportunity to be part of an Outdoor Summer League program both at Seacoast United (at Greater Lawrence Tech in Andover) for grades K-8 on Wednesdays beginning June 30. In addition, Danvers Indoor is also hosting a summer program at their Wilmington facility. This too is on Wednesdays - but limited to Middle School players. If you are interested, please email email@example.com.
The purpose of Lynnfield Youth Field Hockey is to foster, encourage and promote the playing of field hockey for the children and residents of Lynnfield and to develop and promote the qualities of physical fitness, competitive spirit, team play, loyalty, citizenship and good sportsmanship in those who participate in the program.
