Back in (Some) Action!

We are SO excited to be heading back to Davidson Field on Tuesday! While we are operating under strict guidelines, it will still be so great to get together on the turf and prepare for field hockey season! We are especially excited to welcome all of our new players to begin their journey of learning about the sport of field hockey!

While we do not have dates for tryouts set yet due to the current circumstances and guidelines, we ARE preparing for season. Preseason games are still being scheduled, but we have posted the league schedule to the website. CIF has planned for our season to be from December 18 to February 27. **Please make note that we will have practices or games during winter break and president’s week.

Next week we will transition from working out virtually on Zoom to an in person “Phase 1” workout at Davidson Field. We will begin with one-hour practices twice per week on Tuesday and Thursday, and then look forward to increasing the frequency and time. New players will have practice from 3:00-4:00 pm and returning players will have practice from 4:00-5:00 pm.

In order to participate, athletes must be cleared with their Athletic Clearance paperwork and bring a signed NMUSD Athletics Reopening Parent/Guardian Notification Letter. Athletes and coaches will wear face coverings at all times and comply with social distancing of a 6 foot distance from others. Athletes must be dropped off in the parking lot because only athletes and coaches may come onto campus. Athletes will be screened daily upon arrival to the field, which will consist of a health survey and temperature check. The Athletic Parent Permission Slip includes many more details about the guidelines, phases, and expectations.

All players must bring their own water bottle for hydration. Please wear sunscreen, drink water, and eat a good breakfast and lunch. Returning players will bring their own stick and if new players do not have their own stick, we will check out a sanitized stick to them that they can use and take with them. Shin guards, goggles, and mouth guards are not needed during Phase 1 since the athletes will be working on individual skills. Our Coaching Staff and Booster Board Members are so excited to return in person and are committed to making it as safe an environment as possible.

August Update

Happy first day of school to all of our student athletes! While we wish they were on campus, walking around in uniform, and anticipating their first home game, we WILL make the best out of this situation we find ourselves in! We are excited to announce that as long as state and district guidelines allow, we will begin to meet at Davidson field on Tuesday, September 8. Only student athletes who have completed their Athletic Clearance will be permitted to participate. Below is the NMUSD Parent Permission Slip, which outlines many of the procedures and restrictions. Students will need to bring this signed on the first day of returning to play.

Our season is planned to be from December 18 to February 27. ***Please make note that we will have games during winter break and president’s week.

Late July Update

Today would’ve been our first day of our annual Summer Camp. While we are disappointed that we cannot hold camp this summer, we are still very hopeful that we will have a 2020/2021 field hockey season.

Last week, CIF announced that field hockey’s season has been postponed to run from December 18 to February 27. ***Please make note that we will have games during winter break and president’s week.

We look forward to the possibility of a season and as soon as we are given a green light to return to play, we will schedule clinics to teach the sport to new players, practices, and tryouts.

As a reminder, students must have their athletic clearance paperwork complete to participate (as they do every year) whenever we are able to return to play. Please get the athletic clearance paperwork done so that there isn’t a delay once we have the opportunity to play:

Early July Update

Although we have been busy planning and training our coaching staff on how to return to play and create a safe environment for our student-athletes, the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) confirmed with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) that at this time youth sports, including conditioning activities, are not permitted.

We remain hopeful and optimistic that we will have a field hockey season this year. Once statewide guidance is released, our district will work with the Orange County Health Care Agency to consider local community conditions when implementing our reopening plan for athletics.

We will update you as soon as we have new information. As we wait, we will continue to prepare for the re-opening of athletics so that we can be ready to play field hockey again as soon as possible.

As a reminder, students must have their athletic clearance paperwork complete to participate (as they do every year) whenever we are able to return to play. Please get the athletic clearance paperwork done right away so that there isn’t a delay once we have the opportunity to play:

June Check-In

There is not much information about Summer or Fall to update you on yet, so this is just a check-in. We are hopeful that we will be able to have some sort of camp this summer, and of course a season this fall. Our number one priority is the safety of our student athletes, so as we wait for direction from NMUSD and CIF, we are developing plans that will follow possible guidelines and restrictions. We will update you as soon as we have information. If we do get to play, students must have their athletic clearance paperwork complete to participate (as they do every year). Please get the athletic clearance paperwork done right away so that there isn’t a delay later:
