ABOUT: Welcome to Field Hockey- the greatest girls sport! Green Hornets Field Hockey participates in the Anne Arundel County Fall sports program. Our mission is to provide a positive team experience, while teaching solid field hockey skills to our girls. We have a wonderful group of volunteer coaches who dedicate countless hours to this sport and our organization. Girls- play hard, have fun. Parents- cheer loud, enjoy the games. Sticks down and work together!

AGE RANGE:
Sticklettes: 1st and 2nd Grade
Pee Wee: 3rd and 4th Grade
Middie: 5th and 6th Grade
Junior: 7th and 8th Grade

TEAM ASSEMBLY: At the Sticklettes and Pee Wee levels, teams are mainly determined by school grade level and school attended. Thereafter, teams are typically determined by coach or parent request. Parents should use the Special Request section of the online registration form to request a team with a specific coach, school mates, or carpools. We do our best to accommodate all requests.

We hold evaluations for Middie and Junior team assignments. These are not mandatory but ask that you help us by given our coaches an opportunity to understand each girl’s skill to properly place on a team. Special parent request will be considered but we will focus on building balanced teams. We will also use this time to identify our competitive A division teams.
