Forks township participates in the NJ-PA field hockey league. The league is for kids in grade 2-6 with modified rules.
The K and 1st grade kids will be instruction-based, focused on learning basic skills and having fun!
All players in 5th and 6th grade will be required to wear safety GOGGLES. Your child may borrow goggles from the township. If you'd like to purchase your own, be sure the goggles are ASTM certified! (longstreth sporting goods has a decent selection for girls' sporting supplies - order on line) Most sporting goods stores should have them.
Your daughter will also need shin guards and a colored mouth guard (NOT CLEAR). You can borrow a stick for your daughter. If you'd like to purchase one, the stick should be hip-level.
All games will be on 8 Sunday afternoons this year. (Make-up games may occur during the week)
Mark your calendars!
Practices will begin the last 2 weeks of August - dates and time to be determined.
