Uniform Care Instructions

Newport Harbor Field Hockey players received their field hockey uniforms today! Our uniforms are an iconic element of the program, having been worn by Newport Harbor Field Hockey players for decades…literally! Please handle them with care by following the instructions below and plan to return them in excellent condition at the end of the season.
The uniform distributed consists of a plaid skirt, a white home jersey, a navy away jersey and a practice jersey. In addition, your player will need:
  • plain white socks to fit over shin guards
  • plain navy blue socks to fit over shin guards
  • navy blue spandex shorts
  • colored mouth guard (they may not be clear or white)
  • field hockey regulation shin guards
  • field hockey regulation protective eyewear/goggles (Option to do a $25 deposit to NHHS Girls Field Hockey Boosters to borrow a pair from the bin for the year.)
Skirt Care Instructions:
  • Do not change the length of the skirt by cutting the material or sewing the hem.  If you have an issue with skirt length, please contact your team parent.
  • You may move the buttons along the waistband to adjust the fit.  Other than this, please do not alter your skirts.
  • Machine wash on cold.
  • Hang dry (preferred) or tumble dry on low.
Polo Shirt Care Instructions:
  • Machine wash on cold.
  • Do not use fabric softener.
  • Try not to bleach.  If necessary, use non-chlorine bleach only.
  • Soak in Oxiclean before laundering to remove sweat stains.
  • Do not iron.
  • Do not dry clean.
Thanks for your help with this!  If you have any questions about uniforms, please contact your team parent.

2018/2019 Teams Posted

The 2018/2019 Newport Harbor Field Hockey Teams have been posted to the Teams Page.

“Thank you to all who participated in the summer camp and tryouts. The Newport Harbor Field Hockey coaching staff had to make some very difficult decisions as we considered each athlete’s skill, speed, stamina, strength, progression, coach-ability, work ethic, attitude, and 4-year potential. While we look forward to the upcoming season, we regret having to cut any player, or keep any player from advancing to another team, and recognize the dedication and commitment that she has shown by participating in the summer camp and tryouts. We hope that this disappointment does not stop athletes from pursuing the many other activities and programs offered at Newport Harbor High School. We also invite those who did not get placed onto a team to tryout next year. If you have any questions or would like an assessment of current strengths and areas for improvement, please feel free to contact us at newportharborfieldhockey@gmail.com. Thank you again for your participation and understanding.” – The Newport Harbor Field Hockey Coaching Staff
