AFH REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY FULL
We are making teams and assessing coaches and players, so we can open up more spots.
Please add your name to the waitlist, so we can be sure to get you in once spots open
For those who did not register before we filled up, I know this is frustrating. Unfortunately the desire to play field hockey out balances the coaches, the field space, and the volunteers running our organization.

FALL 2021 SEASON
That's a wrap.
What a fantastic fall season of field hockey. No bad weather or rain-outs. We had so many new players and were happy to welcome back returning players. It all came to a conclusion on Halloween with the 7th/8th grade champions - Team 3.
Yes, that's the name they chose. Team 3
In addition to the Championship Game, some brave parents decided to give our sport a try and take on their kids in a friendly match. Way to go, mom and dad's!
OCTOBER 19th - District Playoffs!
Our two local high schools, W-L and Wakefield, played one another in their District Playoffs, and AFH was invited to take the field wiht the high schoolers during introductions. What a special treat for our girls.
Good luck to Yorktown High School as they continue to play in the playoffs!
FALL 2021 REGISTRATION
Without more coaches we are unable to open registration to more players.
Right now, we have over 200 players registered, and another 20+ on the waitlist.
If you would like to register for fall field hockey, but we sold out too fast, please put your name down on our waitlist at this link.
This will collect your information, and we will send you a separate link for registration if we have open spots or get more coaches.
If you are able to coach, please reach out to Megan Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org. More coaches allows us to create more teams.
REQUEST FOR AGE GROUP COORDINATORS
We have close to 250 players registered or on the waitlist. AFH is establishing a foundation for a deep, experienced pool of field hockey players in Arlington, VA. However, as this program grows, one person can not run it by herself.
In the next year we will need to create some Age Group Coordinators. These would be parents who take on some of the responsibilities of the age groups. Helping to register, schedule and coordinate the 3rd/4th grade teams, or the 5th/6th grade teams, etc.
If you think this might be something you could do, please reach out to me, and we can start familiarizing you with the different responsibilities.

AFH 8th graders,
you can tryout for your high school JV team, each high school goes through the process differently so reach out to your HS coach, and go for it! You must be here for tryouts in August, so plan vacations accordingly.
