    Middle School Team Members:

    Equipment Requirements for team members

    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, and 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.

    • For games: The girls will need all of the things listed for practic es and will be provided a team reversible jersey (which they can keep) and will need to have a black skort (you can find these at any sporting goods store), 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.
