Hello all and welcome to the inaugural season for Arlington Field Hockey!
Coach Cara and I are so excited to coach your children this year. Both of us have extensive field hockey experience, that we are excited to pass onto your daughters this season. We wanted to take this time to introduce ourselves but to also encourage you and your daughter to attend the orientation tomorrow (Saturday) at Walter Reed Community Center. Both Cara and I will be there so look for our team table (FH34 BLACK). We will be there handing out uniforms for the girls to try on (they will not be able to keep the uniform - it is just for sizing). Please have your daughter wear clothing that they can put the uniform on top of. The schedule for the orientation is:
11am - 11:30 Arrive, meet us at the table and try on uniform, if needed take a look at sticks and equipment
11:30 - 12pm A quick presentation on the season and what to expect.
We hope to see you there!
The practice schedule is up and will begin after Labor Day. We will be practicing on Thursdays at Boeing Field #1 (also know as Long Bridge Park) from 6:35 - 7:35 - so our first regular season practice will be Thursday September 5th.
We will, also, have preseason practices if you are around (I will not be there but Coach Cara will). These preseason practices won't break into the teams but give the girls that are around some time to get ready for the regular season with fun drills and scrimmages. They are Thursday - August 22nd, Wednesday - August 28th and Thursday - August 29th 7pm to 8pm at Boeing #1
Finally, as a reminder all players need a stick, mouthguard and shinguards for all practices and games - a water bottle is also important!! We will be on turf so your daughter can wear cleats, turf shoes or tennis shoes, whichever she prefers.
We are looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow and to a fun, exciting inaugural Arlington Field Hockey season!
See everyone soon!
Coach Rebecca Guy and Coach Cara Kee
