The deadline to sign up is Friday, September 3.

After School Field Hockey will return to the after school fall line-up. Open to youth from kindergarten through 8th grade, this program will be held on Thursdays, September 8 through October 13 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. This after school program will introduce the sport of Field Hockey, teaching participants the basic skills and fundamentals of the game. Children will learn to apply their skills to field hockey activities and modified games. The registration deadline is Friday, September 2.

The cost for each After School program is $30 per child ($25 for each additional sibling).  Please note that each of these programs have a separate registration deadline. An additional $5 fee will be applied to participants who register after the deadline.
