It was a beautiful night for field hockey, a glorious night for Play4TheCure. Honey Creek baked and sold goodies, Huron collected from their fans and the Chelsea community and other field hockey friends rallied to contribute a record-setting amount of money raised through our annual Play4TheCure efforts. Friends near and far donated online, fans took home painted pumpkins, wristbands were sold in the stands, fans generously donated large bills and checks at the gates and the tally is in!
Our Play4TheCure campaign and 10/10 games raised $5,686.84 for cancer research -- smashing our $3,000 goal.
Since 2015, we have raised $18,850.01 to find cures for cancers.
USA Futures is the Olympic pipeline. Futures entails spring training with an opportunity to compete at a Regionals tournament in Louisville, KY, for potential selection to Nationals in Pennsylvania.
Varsity Coaches Leslie and Casey Fry are holding a USA Field Hockey Futures trial at the BMS field that tests speed and stick skills. Results are submitted to USAFH. Athletes who meet Futures criteria will receive an invitation to sign up for Futures by late October/November.
The trial fee is $25. Here is the link to register by 10/4:
Region 9 Trial Registration
Please note that to participate in Futures spring training, the fee is roughly $425.
If you have participated in Futures already, you will receive an invitation for the 2020 training.
New this year: Your coach can recommend you for Futures training if you are unable to make the trial. You still need to register for the trial. Learn more here.
