Field Hockey - Farmington Valley Girls Field Hockey League
The towns of Simsbury, Avon, Granby, Canton, Harwinton, Farmington and Wethersfield are working together on the Farmington Valley Girls Field Hockey League. Teams will be formed in each town consisting of players in grades 5 & 6. Teams will practice during the week in their respective towns and games will be played on Sunday afternoons in the various communities.
There will be 6 games, running September 9 - October 21 (no games on 10/7) (makeups will be added as needed).
The 5th & 6th grade team will play 8 v 8 games with no goalie. Players will need to bring shinguards, eye protection, mouth guards, cleats or sneakers, a stick and water. Jerseys will be provided. This is an instructional league, and scores will not be kept during games. Games will be run as 2 30-minute halves, with a 5 minute halftime. Cones will be used to mark goals, unless the school has an easily movable goal, at which time actual goals can be used at the coaches' discretion.
Registration deadline is Monday, August 20th. No exceptions will be made after that time.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SIGN UP THROUGH YOUR PROPER TOWN DEPARTMENT.
