    WINTER INDOOR LEAGUE - High School & Middle School

    League runs December through February. Dates and times will be listed in the Calendar. League registration will open in the Fall, 2018.

    Equipment Requirements:

    • An Indoor stick is highly recommended but your regular stick will do.  Note that the bottoms of all sticks will need to be taped to prevent damage to the basketball court. 
    • Shin Guards (Required)
    • Mouth Guard (Required)
    • Both right and left hand field hockey gloves are recommended but not required. Indoor FH has your hands on the court often and the pace of play means your hands take a beating! 
    • Indoor Field Hockey Shoes if you have them (if not, court shoes)  
    • Water Bottle - It is very important to hydrate!

    Indoor FH equipment can be found on the Harrow, Dita and Longstreth websites.

    SUMMER LEAGUE

    For players entering 6th-8th and 9th-12th grade. Separate league play at the High School and Middle School levels. Minimum age requirement: entering 6th grade. Registration will open mid April, 2018.

    This is not a beginner league, so players should have some experience with the rules and have fundamental stick skills (beginners should complete at least one instructional camp before attempting league play). The league will have umpires who will be honing their expertise for the upcoming Middle and High School seasons.

     

    Location: Kent Denver School Deso and/or Horn Field

    1. You must have a current USAFH membership
    2. Read DFHC's Code of Conduct and Waiver form

    Equipment for practices: Footwear appropriate for grass fields, field hockey shin guards (not soccer shin guards – they are too small and will not be permitted by the officials), a mouth guard, a stick. Goggles are not required until high school and are up to the discretion of players and parents at the middle school level. We recommend players have goggles so that they are accustomed to wearing them when it becomes mandatory in high school.

     

    Equipment for games: Players will need everything listed for practices. They will be provided a reversible team jersey (which they can keep) and will need to have a black skort (you can find these at any sporting goods store), as well as a pair of black field hockey socks and a pair of white field hockey socks, without stripes.

     

    The following is a list of resources for field hockey equipment: Harrow

    Sports (located in Denver), Dita Field Hockey (a major field hockey equipment company located in Colorado Springs), and Longstreth Field Hockey.
