The towns of Simsbury, Avon, Granby, Canton, Harwinton, Farmington and Wethersfield are working together on the Farmington Valley Girls Field Hockey League. Teams will be formed in each town consisting of players in grades 5 & 6. Teams will practice during the week in their respective towns and games will be played on Sunday afternoons in the various communities.

Practice night is not known until late summer when coaches are finalized. You can receive a full refund if your child has a conflict with the announced regular practice night and you notify us within a week. 

There will be 6 games, running September 10 - October 29 (no games on 9/17 & 10/8) (makeup date is Nov. 5).

The 5th & 6th grade team will play 8 v 8 games with no goalie. Players will need to bring shinguards, eye protection, mouth guards, cleats or sneakers, a stick and water. Jerseys will be provided. This is an instructional league, and scores will not be kept during games. Games will be run as 2 30-minute halves, with a 5 minute halftime. Cones will be used to mark goals, unless the school has an easily movable goal, at which time actual goals can be used at the coaches' discretion.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  There can be no jewelery worn at practices or games this includes ear rings or other piercings.
