WELCOME TO THE NEW WMASS HKY CLUB PROGRAM!

WMASS HKY is excited to announce the start of a new comprehensive club field hockey program beginning in the Spring of 2020!  Programs will be offered for the U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, and U19 age groups.  Spring training will begin the week of March 23rd and will take place at the University of Massachusetts on water-based AstroTurf at the Gladchuck Sports Complex.  Our world-class coaching staff will include the UMASS Field Hockey coaching staff and players, among additional high level coaches from the area. We are excited to embark on this new adventure and to collaborate with others to #growthegame in Western Mass!

COVID-19 UPDATE

LAST UPDATED 3/15/2020

On Friday, UMass decided to close campus after spring break for the remainder of the semester.  As a result, our athletic facilities are also closed.  As of now, this will remain in effect until April 30th.  We appreciate your patience as this situation continues to evolve.  USA Field Hockey and other organizations have already cancelled many of their spring events.  Rest assured that as soon as campus and our athletic facilities re-open safely, WMASS programs will resume.  Stay tuned for further details.  We will adjust the program price according to the number of training sessions and events available to us.
 
As always, the health and safety of our community is our #1 priority.  We will continue to update you with any pertinent information.

CLUB MISSION

To create an athlete-centered learning environment in which coaches positively impact players and allow them to flourish.

IMPORTANT CLUB NOTES


NCAA COMPLIANCE
*Due to NCAA rules, all WMASS HKY club players must reside within a 50-mile “as the crow flies” radius of the University of Massachusetts or WMASS HKY must be the closest available training opportunity for the athlete should they reside outside the 50-mile radius.

USA FIELD HOCKEY MEMBERSHIP
*For insurance coverage, all WMASS HKY club players must be current USA Field Hockey members.  Make sure to affiliate with “WMASS HKY”. (This does not apply to the Mini Minutes Program)

U12 Membership (ages 11 & under): $25
U19 Membership (ages 12-18): $60
[JOIN NOW]

UNIFORMS
For our first season this spring, we decided to start with a nice reversible jersey, shorts, and white/black socks as our uniforms.  We are finalizing pricing on a nice Under Armour set and expect this complete package to be right around or under $80.  All U12, U14, U16 and U19 players will need to purchase this kit.  We will release more information and how to order once it is finalized.  We will then look to get “official” uniforms in the Fall/Winter.  After this season, these reversibles/shorts/socks we are starting with will always still be great to have and use!

REFUND POLICY
No refunds will be made after the first practice.  Exceptions to this policy (major medical issues, etc) may be requested in writing, but are not guaranteed since planning is done, the coaching staff is hired, and fees go towards running the entire program.

CODE OF CONDUCT
WMASS HKY reserves the right to remove any player from the club at any time for behavior that is unsafe or detrimental to the club as a whole or the experience of it’s members.  We are constructing an actual club code of conduct to outline the expectations we have for our members, families and coaches.

NEWS/UPDATES


FALL/WINTER PROGRAMS
WMASS HKY will be a comprehensive year-round club program.  In the Fall, we will continue with the younger ages and playdates.  We will send teams to either Shooting Star Thanksgiving or Festival and have some prep before those events.  We will have a complete indoor season, including attending all NIT qualifiers.  We will send teams to Winter Escape, potentially Disney, the works.  Here is a compilation we started of potential tournaments we’ll attend- interest and availability will determine what we end up going to: VIEW CALENDAR
