2019 WMASS HKY Fall Youth
Field Hockey Program (ALL NEW!)

We are excited to announce a new youth fall field hockey program at UMass!  Our Mini Minutes program has been so successful in our first 2 seasons (reaching capacity this spring at 120!)- we want 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.  We are still working out the playday/scrimmage days.  We are tentatively working on Sunday, September 15th and Saturday, October 26th.  As soon as these dates and details are finalized, we will share that information.
