We are excited to work with Section IX field hockey in the Hudson Valley to run winter league for 2017-2018. It will be the same winter league you know and love that Rondout Valley coach, Nanette Simione, created and grew over the years. The only difference is now registration is through our non-profit, Play Beyond the Game. We are looking forward to another fun season at the dome!
WHEN: January 4 through February 22 (***THURSDAYS***) Grades 7-8 (from 6-7PM); Grades 9-10 (games will vary: 6-7PM and 7-8PM); Grades 11-12 (7-8PM)
There are NO MAKE-UPS due to weather. NO REFUNDS in cases of weather cancellation.
WHO: Open to players in 7th-12th grade. Experience NECESSARY. There will be NO instruction. Players will register as individuals and be placed on a team with players from other schools (not their HS team). If you are a goalie, please indicate if you are available for both game times. If there are not enough goalies, we will give the goalies an opportunity to play during both game times each night.
COACHES: A coach from each school must be available to coach a team, if you send 5 or more players. If you have 12+ players, it is required there be 2 coaches from your program (or one coach for 2 teams). COACHES MUST REGISTER as well (no cost).
