FIRST MIDDLE SCHOOL PRACTICE
Our first practice will be held tomorrow, August 11 at McCord Park (not McCord middle school) on Wilson Bridge Road.  We are staggering the start time to make introductions more manageable.  Pods 1 & 2 will start at 6:00pm, Pods 3 & 4 at 6:15pm. 
 
Pod 1 Pod 2 Pod 3 Pod 4
Adeline A. Elena S. Elise J. Addison R.

Athletes, please report to your pod upon arrival with all of your required gear.  Look for orange buckets with the pod number on the side.  Please wear a mask during this time, as your coaches will have lots of information to share before we get started with the practice activities.  You do not need to wear a mask otherwise.

 
Parents, please attend a brief meeting at the beginning of practice on Tuesday.  We will "gather" on the field in front of the bleachers but please allow 6 feet between families and wear maks during this brief time.  Thank you.

Season Still On

We still are moving forward with our season.  School athletics have been suspended but, as a WYB program, we are okay to continue as long as we all are committed to protocols that keep everyone safe. 

Please read the latest order from the Ohio Department of Health that covers contact sports.  In summary, we can practice, but no competitions with other organizations until further notice.  And yes, field hockey has been officially categorized as a contact sport.

Middle school was scheduled to begin Saturday, Aug 8 but we are pushing the first practice back until Tuesday, August 11.  Plans for the elementary program are still in the works.  More detailed information to come. Thanks for your patience!

Season Plans

WYBFH is happy to announce that we submitted our COVID-safe restart plan for field hockey and have been cleared by WYB to have a season this fall.  So we are proceeding with an abundance of caution and hope!

There are still many unknowns and challenges at this point.  In particular, we are still awaiting information on what fields will become available by August, if any.  We are hopeful, and therefore, are opening up registration on July 1.

Programs will be limited to grades 4-8 this year.  The hands-on instruction we provide to our youngest players simply cannot be done effectively while maintaining proper distance. We will consider bringing back the 2nd-3rd grade program later in the season or holding a clinic. 

As of this announcement, we do not know if our middle school Cards and Wolves teams will be able to play out their game schedule as planned. Contact sports (field hockey does fall into this category) are allowed to resume full practices but competition is still not permitted by ODH.  We continue to monitor ODH protocols for an update on competition. 

In the early weeks of July, we'd like you to register so that we can begin sharing updates and expectations about season plans with you directly.  Later, when we are certain about obtaining fields, program fees will be applied to your account.  Expect the same fees as last year or less if we have to limit the offering.  

The estimated start date for middle school is Saturday, Aug 8.  Elementary will not start until after kids go back to school, likely Saturday, Aug 22 or Monday, Aug 24.  These dates are subject to change.  Once registered, you will receive updates as the situation evolves leading up to the season.

It is absolutely critical that every player, parent and coach commit to the protocols that keep our community safe.  No matter what your personal stance may be, no matter who you've been safely socializing with, everyone will be expected to comply with the COVID-safe protocols, including distancing.  Details on protocols will be clearly communicated in advance of the season and are available on our website here.
