INCREASING SKILL:  FOCUS ON PLAYER AND TEAM DEVELOPMENT

The Youth Rec League program is for 3rd through 8th grade* players regardless of experience.  Players will be teamed by school and/or high school cluster to promote school spirit and club play.  Clusters may be grouped together to make teams.  Our program is focused on providing players of all skill levels the opportunity to develop and grow.

TEAMS
Teams are determined by the grade of the player for the academic school year.  3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th, and 7th & 8th grade players are teamed together.  Teams are created in priority of current school, high school cluster, then combining clusters together to make appropriately sizes teams.  Teams vary in size from 9 to 13 players for 7v7 play.  Players registered after teaming has been done will be placed where space exists.  PFH does not take requests for specific coaches, practice nights, teams, etc.  Players are teamed by school and then high school cluster to help facilitiate neighborhood carpools and to have girls playing together from the same schools since they will be future high school teammates. Depending on numbers each season, schools and high school clusters are sometimes combined.  A combination team on season will not necessarily be a combined team in the next season since number of registered players from this combination can vary. 

SEASONS
The Youth Rec League program runs in both spring and fall.  The Spring season typically runs from the end of March through early June.  The Fall season typically runs September through the end of October.  A Winter indoor season may be added depending on facility availability.

EQUIPMENT
All players must have a molded colored mouth guard, field hockey shin guards (not soccer shin guards), and stick.  Cleats, sneakers or turf shoes may be worn.
