Cave Girl Field Hockey 2020 Summer Programs Update REV. 6/17/20
League Starts Tuesday, 6/23/20!!!! And all summer programs are on!
All play will be at Souhegan High School Calvetti Field.
Although there have been revisions in the social gathering numbers, Saint Anselm canceled their summer programs because they have a lot to do to prepare their campus as they have decided to open early for their fall semester. Luckily, all of our programs will continue on the beautiful Calvetti Turf Field in Amherst at Souhegan High School!
I have been in communication with The NH Task Force Youth Sports Chair, and after speaking with him, we are well within the acceptable numbers for social gathering. There is a limit of 50 for competition, which means only who are actively playing in games as in our HS league. It does not count subs, coaches, or officials. When we run all 4 games at once at HS league, we have 56 players in 7v7 games. He said that’s very reasonable and safe.
Cave Girl will adhere to every safety precaution recommended by the NH Task Force. I will send those reminders and the schedule for all HS games by Monday late morning.
Some of the important things to know right now for all participants:
- Everyone should wear face coverings to and from the field, but it can be taken off when you are on the field.
- Only participants will be allowed on the field. Spectators are asked to stay outside the stadium, and are welcome to watch from outside but need to practice social distancing as they do so.
- We usually provide water for our participants, but this will not be possible as we are trying to avoid this interaction.
- Each player should bring their own hand sanitizer to limit multiple people using the same bottle. However, we will have hand sanitizer readily available for use.
- The bathrooms will not be open, but there will be a port-o-potty to use that will be sanitized according to Task Force guidelines.
- Please wear a reversible (one that has a dark and a light side) if you have one to limit the need for a pinnie as once it’s used, we will not be using it again that night for league.
- All equipment use will be strictly monitored as once anything is used it must be sanitized. For example, if you need to borrow a stick, that stick will be monitored to make sure it is sanitized after use.
- We will have a Registered Nurse on-site for the first night of league at least and on call for future dates who is actively involved in the safety precautions necessary surrounding Covid-19.
- We will have staff members monitoring all safety precautions at all programs. We ask that you be understanding of their role in keeping everyone safe.
- Registration Expectations: In an effort to limit the amount of interaction to keep everyone safe, we expect all participants to be registered and paid prior to the first night. If you must pay in cash, please realize no change will be made. If you are paying by check, please have it filled out prior to the first night at registration as we do not want to share pens, etc.

Julie Munson will work with the goalkeepers specifically on the night she isn’t running the clinic for the field players
- *8th graders who have team experience who also attend the morning session of Cave Girl Camp at Saint Anselm College 7/27-7/31 are allowed to attend the evening camp at Souhegan. At Cave Girl, we feel strongly that 8th graders need the fundamental skills provided at the morning session of our camp. However, we also see the importance of challenging those who are ready to take their skills to the next level. That is why we will offer these 8th graders the opportunity to attend the evening camp. Middle school students who do not fit these criteria cannot attend this High School Clinic. This way we can guarantee the competitive level for our high school players.
Field Hockey Summer League
Our league is 7v7 round robin format (3-4 games play at a time). Players have many opportunities to touch the ball against different opponents because they play multiple games a night. Sign up individually, BUT you will be placed on a team with other members of your school team if they are present. Everyone is placed on a team each night based on who attends that night as some teams need players, and there are House teams. The elementary and middle school grades receive instruction in addition to game play. Goalies receive a $25 discount for league! Enter promo code GK!

Cave Girl Field Hockey programs provide young athletes the opportunity to become better players by learning from some of the best coaches and players in the game. We provide quality instruction and healthy competition in a fun, supportive playing environment. Each player receives both individual and group instruction under an excellent player/coach ratio. All players are exposed to advanced techniques and the fundamental skills of field hockey and lacrosse.
The foundation of our field hockey curriculum is based on the US Futures Program as our camp is a USFHA Sanctioned Partner Camp. All levels of experience and ability are welcome and encouraged to participate in all of the Cave Girl programs as we group players according to age and skill.
Cave Girl is a US Field Hockey Partner Camp
The Partner Camp program provides athletes the opportunity to be identified for the Futures program, the Olympic Development Program for USA Field Hockey. Cave Girl can recommend up to 5% of their participants to the US Futures program. See the USA Field Hockey website at www.teamusa.org/USA-Field-
