Welcome to Nazareth Clippers Field Hockey!
Registration for Fall 2024 is open until May 31

We are excited for another season of field hockey and look forward to getting back on the field! We are a recreational league with a focus on instruction, promoting a love of the game, sportsmanship, and developing character through sports.

Our competitive program is for girls in 2nd-6th grades. We are proud to offer an instructional "Little Sticks" program for girls in Kindergarten and 1st grade to learn basic skills. Little Sticks do NOT have games, just practices (and no work bond due).

We will need volunteers to help with lining the fields for home games!

Registration ends May 31st

Registration Fee:
Little Sticks - $50
Grades 2-6 - $100; Fundraiser fee $50 (single player) or $75 (family)
Refundable volunteer and equipment work bond due at uniform pick up in August: $50.00 per Player/$75 per family

There will be a $75 work bond buyout option for NOT lining the fields; however, the uniform still needs to be returned. The only way to receive your check back is to return a CLEAN uniform and complete field lining. The $75 buyout check will be cashed at the end of the season and the CLEAN uniform still needs to be returned. 

Late registrations may not be able to be accommodated depending on the number of players on each team. A late fee of $25 will apply if teams do have the space. As a reminder it's the parents responsibility to register their child(ren) on time!

Here is a list of equipment your daughter will need to participate during the season: 
- Field Hockey Stick- best way to measure a field hockey stick is to stand the stick upright and hold it up to your daughter's hip, and it should measure at the hip or just above the hip. I also have a chart at the bottom for your daughter's height and stick length to purchase. 
- Shin Guards- look for reversible black and white.
- Mouth guard
- Field Hockey Ball
- Cleats
- Goggles-not required, but highly recommended.

Dick's Sporting Goods or on Amazon have a rookie combo deal with a field hockey bag for $100-$140, I would check this out first.

Here is a chart for Height and Field Hockey stick length:
Height                  Stick Length
4' & under                   28"
4'1-4'3                     30"-31"
4'4-4'6                     32"-33"
4'7-5'                           34"
