HPS Middle School Field Hockey Interest Survey

HPS Field Hockey Interest Survey

We are starting a middle school field hockey program in Haverhill, building off of the clinics and City Recreation Department programs over the past several years. The Recreation department will continue to host clinics and programs as well.

Format: If we have enough interest, we would ideally have a team from each middle school (grades 5-8). A practice or two and a game each week for approximately 6 weeks. Games would be in-town and possibly with nearby towns as available. Depending on interest, we might consider combining middle schools.  We’re looking to gauge interest this spring to help plan for this fall.

Please answer the following questions to support our planning. This is not committing your student to playing.

Responses will be collected May 26
