Varsity Field Hockey
2019 Field Hockey Tryouts
Please plan vacations prior to tryouts and our season. We understand problems may arise but attendance is very important and absences will impact playing time (upon making the team).
Tryouts will start Monday, August 5 and go through Wednesday, August 7, 2019 from 2:30-5pm. The players will find out if they made the team on August 7 after tryouts. Wednesday's times may be a bit different but will be communicated in a timely manner.
Please arrive 15-20 minutes early and meet outside the weight room doors.
Must have a current physical on file (dated after May 1, 2019).
Must have cleats and running shoes, mouth guard, stick and ASTM certified goggles. The ASTM rule goes into effect this year. All goggles must be stamped with the ASTM 2713 certification. If you do not have stamped goggles, you need to buy ones that are. Call Longstreth for questions regarding any goggles you might purchase: 1-800-545-1329
If you make the team, practices will begin on Thursday August 8 and be from 2:30-4:30.
Practices will be everyday, in the afternoon from 2:30-4:30pm. Every Wednesday, starting August 26, Varsity will practice from 3-5pm. This allows for the members of the team to attend tutoring and other clubs.
A few reminders-
- The 2019-2020 school year starts August 12, 2019.
- Practice times may change due to excessive heat or other weather issues, so please understand these times are tentative.

The mission statement of the Colonial Forge Girls’ field hockey team is to bring skill, passion, and sportsmanship to the game of field hockey. The coaching staff promotes success on the field and in the classroom. We are students first; athletes second and there is a delicate balance to be successful in both areas.
The coaches and players strive to be one of the best teams in the area in skill and sportsmanship. The coaching staff wants each field hockey player to be dedicated to both her individual improvement as well as development of the team. We want our players to go above and beyond, consistently demonstrating a high level of focus, intensity, and hustle during the season (practices and games) as well as during the offseason. Commitment and dedication from families and players is imperative to remain competitive within our district.
We have set forth team guidelines and we expect each player to abide by the rules and regulations. With a combined effort of all those involved, we believe we can achieve our goals. We believe in each and every player. Our successes will come from our continued hard work and dedication.
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support! Go Eagles!
