The costs includes 6 weeks (with two playing sessions a week) of awesome field hockey with certified referees.
Can I play with my high school team?
Absolutely! Just have your high school team register under team registrations. Each individual player will register as well and pay a $20 administration fee. This is a great (and cheaper) option for high school programs.
What should I do if I don’t have a team to play with?
Sign up. Not having a team is no problem-you are in the majority of the players in the league. Just show up each week and we will place you on a team. We have tons of individual players so it’s easy to form teams.
How are the games set up?
We will run 3 fields and play 7 v 7. Teams will rotate so they play different people each time. If numbers are low for the session, we may also play 11 v 11 so that there isn’t as much sitting around time.
When and where is it held?
Summer league is held on the Potomac School turf at 1301 Potomac School Rd. McLean, VA 22101. We will play Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6pm starting the week of June 23nd and continuing until July 30th (Aug. 5th if we have to cancel because of weather).
What do we do if it rains?
If it is just raining, we will play. If the rain becomes torrential (and dangerous) or there is thunder/lightning, we will go in the gym and wait it out. We have to wait 30 mins from the last time we see lightning so if this happens towards the end of the session, we will start calling parents. If there is more than one rain date- we do not offer refunds.
What do I need to bring?
Shinguards, mouthguard, goggles (if you want to wear them), field hockey stick, sneakers or turf shoes, sunscreen, and WATER! You must also wear a pinny to the sessions so that we can easily switch teams.
Do I have to come to every session?
No. This is one of the benefits of summer league. We understand that players take vacations and go to camps. We want you to show up whenever you can but completely understand that it is summer and you have other plans as well, that is why we tried to make it so affordable!
What is Wednesday conditioning?
We will post conditioning on our Facebook page every week so you can do it on your own, but it is a way for athletes to get some group fitness in beyond that 3 mile run you take. It will imitate preseason fitness so you can be ready come August to play and make your high school team.
Do you offer refunds?
More than a month before the program begins, we offer a half refund and half credit. A month before the program begins, we only offer credit. If you need to drop out due to injury, we offer full refunds minus a $10 registration fee.
