Registration is open for the Oceanside Youth Field Hockey League. The league is open to youngsters in Regional School Unit 13 in first through eighth grades for the fall of 2011.

The aim of the league is to promote the sport by teaching basic field hockey skills in a fun and safe environment. The league will be run by RSU 13 field hockey coaches Joanna Hall, Kristy Hastings, Andrea Garver and assisted by current Oceanside High School players.

The league will be Monday nights, June 20 through July 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Oceanside East (RDHS) field hockey field. Players will participate in skills and drills sessions, followed by scrimmages. Participants will be grouped by age and ability.

The cost is $20 and includes a league t-shirt. Scholarships are available.

Mouth guards and shin guards are required. Oceanside field hockey does have a limited supply of equipment to loan out.

Registration forms are available at RSU 13 schools or can be downloaded from the district website at rsu13.org.
