Grades 1 & 2 - Fall Season 2018

We are in desperate need of coaches for our 1st & 2nd grade program and will only be able to build teams if we have coaches for them.  If you are willing to coach a team or to assist a coach, please contact Jes Barrett at jes_barrett@yahoo.com  Wildcats will be hosting a Coaches Clinic led by the AGHS Varsity Field Hockey Coach prior to the start of the season. The strength and health of our program relies on parent volunteers! Thank you!


Opens:                 June 8, 2018
Late Fee begins:   July 15, 2018
Closes:                 August 1, 2018
Wait List

Registration fills up very quickly and occasinoally we need to place girls on a wait list.  As we are able to secure more coaches and as enough players register to form an additional team, we will open up teams and invite players off the wait list to register for the season.  If your daughter is placed on a wait list, please know that we will do our best to make room for her on a team.  One of the biggest factors that will help this happen is having good coaches.  If you are willing to coach or assistant coach, please contact Jes Barrett at es_barrett@yahoo.com.

Invitations to play off the wait list are on a first come, first served basis.  If your daughter is invited to play, you will have 72 hours to complete her registration and make your payment.  If these steps are not taken in 72 hours, you will forfeit your daughters place and we will extend an invitation to the next player on the wait list.  

All girls currently enrolled in the 1st or 2nd grade who reside in the Avon Grove School District and attend Avon Grove Charter School, Octorara, Assumption, and Sacred Heart Schools; and/or who do not otherwise have a league where they reside.
To teach field hockey fundamentals and instill the value of team athletics. To introduce the game of field hockey to new players. And to have fun!
The 2018 Fall season begins about August 27 and continues through the end of October/beginning of November.
Practice and Game Schedule
Practices will be held twice a week, beginning September 5, 2018.  Practice days, times and locations are to be determined.  We are hopeful for Monday/Wednesday practices.  We project practices will run from 5:30-7pm.  However, as the season progresses and days get shorter, practices will need to end sooner.  Eventually, practice will end at 6:30/6:45.

Games for 1st & 2nd grade girls will be in a “play day” or "round robin" format.  The girls will have 3 to 4 game days during the season. The program for 1st & 2nd graders is developmental in nature. The older teams (3-6 grade) have approximately 8 games during the season.
Equipment Requirements

Avon Grove Wildcats Field Hockey will be providing each participant with a reversible pinnie, a black skort, and socks for their game uniform.  Girls will need to wear a WHITE tank top or shirt underneath the pinnie.  Girls may wear WHITE long sleeve shirts and/or BLACK leggings under their skorts in colder weather.

Each player will also need a Field Hockey stick, eye goggles (similar to ones worn in lacrosse), a COLORED mouth guard, shin guards, cleats (or turf shoes) and sneakers.
