Welcome to Highlands Field Hockey Club (HFHC)! We are excited to begin our April Training this Sunday. We started the club in 2015 when our two daughters were playing in order to grow the game in Northern NJ. Since then, we have trained over 600 girls. In fact, 44 of the 41 varsity starters on the Northern Highlands Field Hockey team over the past 4 years trained with us. There are NO parent coaches and all of our coaches played at the high school varsity and/or college levels and received numerous accolades. They love imparting their knowledge of the game to youth regardless of the towns they come from.
Below is some important information for the upcoming April Training:
- Training has been moved to 10am-11:30am on the turf at NH for the first two weeks, April 11 and April 18. Starting on April 25, we will resume our normal training time of 10:30-12pm.
- The schedule can be found at http://www.leagueathletics.com/Bulletins.asp?team=676109&division=&org=HighlandsFieldHockeyClub
- All training will be held at Northern Highlands in Allendale on the turf field (or the grass field, if varsity sports need the turf).
- Please have the girls dress appropriately for the weather - layers are always best. Sneakers or turf shoes are the preferred footwear.
- Make sure your daughter brings water with her.
- The girls MUST wear masks when getting out of the car and walking on to the field, as well as leaving after practice.
In terms of equipment, all players must have a stick, mouth guard and shin guards (soccer shin guards are fine). Goggles (lacrosse goggles are fine) are optional.
We would also like to add a reminder that if you and your child are traveling, please follow the quarantining guidelines set by the state of NJ at https://covid19.nj.gov/faqs/nj-information/travel-and-transportation/are-there-travel-restrictions-to-or-from-new-jersey. Our HFHC family did an incredible job over the winter of keeping everyone safe and our goal is to continue allowing HFHC to play!
Thank you and let us know if you have any questions!
