Parent Meeting Prep

The Fall 2010 Parent Meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 25 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be located in the Social Hall at Newport Harbor High School (the room to the left of the big anchor facing Irvine Avenue).

Please download the Player Fees & Registration Form and either mail it to the Booster Treasurer, Nancy Rohan, or bring it to the parent meeting.

It is very important that one or both parents be present to represent their daughter. This will be a chance to meet the coaching staff, Booster Board, and other parents. There will also be an opportunity to sign up for team dinners and other volunteer positions, purchase merchandise, and hear about the upcoming fall season.

We hope to see you there!

5th Annual Alumni Game

Thanks to all who came out for the Newport Harbor Field Hockey’s 5th Annual Alumni Game! We had a great turn out for the game – both players and fans! With a 2-0 win, the Alumni Team was victorious and ended the Current Players’ two-year winning streak. The Boosters made a great BBQ lunch for all – it was a great day! For more pictures from the Alumni Game, check out our flickr.

All of the sisters who played against each other. So fun!

Summer Camp & Tryouts Come to an End

“Thank you to all who participated in our summer camp and tryouts. This year marked the largest number of new and returning players in the program’s history, therefore the selection process was very difficult as there are only a limited number of spots between the three teams. The coaching staff and I had to make some tough decisions as we considered each athlete’s skill, speed, stamina, strength, progression, coach-ability, work ethic, attitude, and potential. While we look forward to the 2010-2011 season, we regret having to cut any player and recognize the dedication and commitment that she has shown by participating in the summer camp. We hope that this disappointment does not stop athletes from pursuing the many other activities and programs offered at Newport Harbor.

We also invite those who did not get placed onto a team to tryout next year. If anyone has any questions or would like an assessment of current strengths and areas for improvement, please feel free to contact me at amandamboyer@gmail.com.

Thank you again for your participation and understanding,

Amanda Boyer”
