URA Field Hockey


The URA Field Hockey Program is an instructional level program open to girls entering first through eighth grades in the fall who are interested in both learning the fundamentals of field hockey and improving their skills.  Our program is designed for the girls to have fun, get exercise, practice teamwork, make friends, and develop their field hockey abilities. 

The season generally runs from early September through the end of October. The girls are typically divided into divisions based on their grade level:

  • First-Second Graders….One to 1.5 hours a week with games on weekends
  • Third-Fourth Graders….One and a half to two hours of weeknight practice and Saturday games
  • Fifth-Sixth Graders…..Two and a half hours of weeknight practice and Saturday games
  • Seventh-Eighth Graders….Saturday games

The 1-2 and 3-4 divisions play 6 vs. 6 on a half sized field with no goalie.  The 5-6 and 7-8 division plays 11 vs. 11 with goalies on a full sized field, similar to that of the middle and high school teams.  Our “home” field is located at Patton Middle School.  In previous seasons, we have been able to “travel” to away locations (no further than 30 minutes) and this will be determined at the end of summer.

Practices are held at Charles F. Patton Middle School on fields 17 & 18. See UCFSD map below.

NOTE: Practice is a necessary component of learning this sport, developing skills, build teamwork, and playing hockey SAFELY.  Please recognize that a commitment to practice is important and players must develop a level of safety before coaches can give them the opportunity to play in games.

URA provides balls and goalie equipment for players. 

UNIFORMS or T-shirts:
Uniforms or t-shirt will be supplied to your child.
NOTE: The uniforms are the SAME uniform that the URA girls lacrosse team received this spring 2021.
So, if your child received a uniform in lacrosse in the 2021 season, she will wear that same uniform for field hockey and will not receive a new uniform for this field hockey 2021 season.

Each player MUST PROVIDE their own stick, shin guards, and mouth guard.  Shin guards and mouth guards are mandatory!

Volunteers are needed.  We are always looking for coaches at all levels.  Our program is only as successful as the involvement of volunteers allows us to be!  Please consider signing up to help by being a coach, age group commissioner and/or field commissioner.   Head coaches will receive a discounted registration fee!  Please contact us directly if interested in coaching at [email protected].
