Sticklettes – First & Second Graders
Games are 6 v. 6 (no goalie) on a condensed field, with a coach from each team on the field as an instructional referee. Games are typically on weekdays and are set by the County. Davidsonville teams are limited to 10 players on a first-come first-served basis. Additional teams may be added pending the availability of committed coaches (that’s you, parents!). Two practices per week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, until games begin on the same evenings. Games are played at various fields throughout the county, with home games at Davidsonville Park.
Pee Wee – Third & Fourth Graders (must be 8 by first game)
Games are 7 v. 7 (6 field players and 1 goalie) on a condensed field, with two paid referees. Games are typically on weekends. Please note that a few weekday games and several weekends with both Saturday and Sunday games are to be expected. Two practices per week, on days determined by the coach and the Commissioner. Games are played at various fields throughout the county, with home games at Davidsonville Park
Basic field hockey rules and skills are taught at this level. Ability varies widely at this age in field hockey, so the focus is on skill-building, teamwork and sportsmanship. If more than one team is formed, parent preference will be strongly considered. If deemed safe and appropriate by the Coach, Commissioner and Parents, girls may play-up.
Middies – Fifth & Sixth Graders
Games are 11 v. 11 (10 field players and 1 goalie) on a 110 yd. field, with 2 paid referees and timekeeper/scorekeeper provided by the home team. Basic field hockey rules and skills are reviewed, game strategies are taught and sportsmanship is stressed. Expect two to three practices per week, at coach’s discretion. Games will be played at various turf fields throughout the county. The division of teams will be determined by availability of coaches, and it is always likely that some players will be moved to the junior age-group to complete a mixed middie-junior team; players' age, ability, experience, fitness, and level of commitment will be considered in making such decisions. Parent preference may be considered, but will not be determinative.
Juniors – Seventh & Eighth Graders
Games are 11 v. 11 (10 field players and 1 goalie) on a 110 yd. field, with 2 paid referees and timekeeper/scorekeeper provided by the home team. Division of A, B and/or C teams will be determined by age, ability, experience, fitness, and level of commitment. Expect three practices per week. Games will be played at various turf fields throughout the county.
Practice and Game Locations
Our home field for Sticklette and Pee Wee games will be at DAA Park. Middies and Juniors will play all games at various turf fields in Anne Arundel County. We will continue to use Davidsonville Park and Davidsonville Elementary School as our practice fields.
We need coaches and assistant coaches for all levels for the fall 2013 field hockey season. Contact Hugh Giorgio at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
If you have never played or coached field hockey, you’re not alone! We pair novice and experienced coaches together, and there will be a coaches clinic before practices begins.
We also need field liners and team parents.
