Field Hockey LEAGUE
Summit’s Youth Field Hockey Program - Travel League for Grades 2-6
This year the Summit Department of Community programs is excited to introduce a new Field Hockey Program for players between 2nd and 6th grades of all levels of experience from beginners to advanced players.
We will participate in the Mid Jersey Youth Field Hockey League. Towns historically in the league include Bridgewater, Branchburg, Madison, Long Hill, Hillsborough, Clark, Westfield, Chatham, Morristown, Metuchen, and Basking Ridge.
Our focus is on fun, friendships and field hockey (in that order!). Registration opens July 28, 2023 at 12:30PM. Our season begins after Labor Day and run until late Oct/early Nov. The program practices once per week on Monday from 7-8:30 PM and/or Thursdays from 5:30-7:00* and plays local games on Sundays (or an occasional Saturday afternoon) at the Upper High School Field. The Club is open to all residents without regard to financial status. If you need financial assistance, please contact the Department of Community Programs at 908-277-2932.
*Thursday practices will be at the Middle School on the grass field
