Ann Arbor Rec and Ed department has a nice youth field hockey league (where I got my start!!) and we have enrolled a team in each of the three age divisions:
3rd and 4th grade / 5th and 6th grade / 7th and 8th grade.
The cost to participate is $260. This includes: colored t-shirt that will serve as our jersey for games, field rentals in Novi for practices, all games and officials fees, a stick to borrow if needed.
You are responsible for: Black or Navy shorts, shin guards and socks, mouth guard.
The league is 7 v 7 with mini goals (no goalies). We will limit the roster to the first 12 to register.
Games will be played at either Skyline High School or Huron High School in Ann Arbor. Most games are on Saturday with the occasional Sunday game possible. We will have practices on Wednesday evening in Novi (location and time TBD... I'm working on field rental now)
The first game will be April 13/14. The last weekend will be June 8/9. All experience levels welcome! Sign up with a friend!
Midwest Youth Festival is a 7 a side tournament, we'll take 10-11 girls per team. We hope to take teams at the U-12 and U-14 levels. The tournament will be all day, Sunday, June 9 and we are guaranteed four 25 minute games.
We will not do housing or require a weekend stay. All transportation and housing is on your own. We will just meet at the turf an hour before our first game and say good-bye after our last game. We will have two practices the week before. I'm working on securing turf time now.
Cost to participate is $130- This will include practice fees, tournament entry fees. If you do not have a Live Oak jersey, you'll have to pay for that as well.
There will also be an opportunity to do a 45 minute clinic with two field hockey olympians for an additional $40 fee!
Let me know if you have any questions, I'm excited to travel with our younger athletes!!!!!
