Fall Youth Field Hockey Program (ALL NEW!)
UMass will be offering a new youth fall field hockey program! The Mini Minutes program was so successful in the first two seasons (reaching capacity this spring at 120!) that UMass wanted to keep that momentum going and offer additional opportunities for young players to continue learning and playing field hockey in Amherst. Following are the basics of the program. The Saturday playday/scrimmage days are still being worked out, so that is TBD. In the meantime, if you are interested in participating, please submit the Interest form below (this is not an official registration form—another one will be sent out once exact details are set).
