Once finalized, you will receive a schedule from your age group’s coaches & field directions for away tournaments/scrimmages and practices. We generally practice all together all ages.We will use these dates Rain or Shine. There are no make-up dates. We are not able to acquire fields for other days due to inclement weather or changes by the OJR Athletic Dept. The only reason that we will not practice is lightning and thunder and those days will be lost. We will communicate any change to schedule.  Our league does not generally have a “set day or time” each week- we work around Owen J.’s schedule. We do not have the final schedule until late July early August.

Once registration is closed and fields are approved.  Our awesome coaches will get lists of each age group and they will set up group distribution to communicate with you during the season.  

Mark your calendars for   .  The OJRFH girls will take   and have invited us to the game and we will be on the field before the game!  All NYAAFH Girls are invited to this game with free admission.  ** Our six graders will get more info on how to become a ball girl at J/V & Varsity games this year!!**

Please make sure that your daughter has all of the following items for the first practice.- Mouthpiece, Shin Guards, Stick, eye protection and water. Pinnies/Socks are ordered and will be given to children at the first two practices. Please keep earrings/jewelry at home.

We will have a very limited number of sticks to borrow. Please contact us if you need one.

IMPORTANT~~~ Please DO NOT go down the steps with your child to the field at practices/games. Adults need to drop off and move to the stadium seating.  There should be no reason to be on the field- please make sure your child has everything before they are dropped off.  This causes confusion. 

Please have your child go down the steps to the south field- we have security at all our practices/scrimmages.

When picking up kids- please line up across the field on the wall of the HS, and we will dismiss your child to you. 

This is very important- as we have a lot of kids and parents, and we want to make drop offs and pick-ups easy as can be.

****Parents if you stay to watch PLEASE make sure you are in the stands.  They will not allow you to stand and watch from the road, steps, top of the steps or fence.**** This means you- no exceptions.

Please follow our facebook page (Norchester Field Hockey)- lots of hockey links and info.  We want to support the OJRFH teams as they give back by helping us- both team and coaches!!

If your child has to miss a game or practice do not worry, they will not be penalized.

 Also, just want to remind everyone, we at NYAAFH are all volunteers doing our best to make this another great season. This is a true recreational team, we want to develop solid players not win at all cost. Tournament teams will be a mixture of skills- we will not stack teams!! We will lose, tie and win- at the end of the day we want the kids to love hockey and make improvements.

 

Please read our mission.
