UMass Field Hockey program – for boys and girls- K-2nd grade, 3rd & 4th grade, 5th & 6th grade, 7th & 8th grade
We are excited to announce that we will be offering a new youth fall field hockey program at UMass! Our Mini Minutes program has been so successful in our first 2 seasons (reaching capacity this spring at 120!)- we want to keep that momentum going and offer additional opportunities for young players to continue learning and playing field hockey in Amherst. Following are the basics of the program. We are still working out the Saturday playday/scrimmage days, so that is a bit TBD. In the meantime, we want to get a sense of what the level of interest is at each age group. If you are interested in participating, please let us know by submitting the interest form below (this is not an official registration form- we will send that out once exact details are set).
